Some thoughts from our customers
Would recommend this place to anyone. The team are absolutely brilliant and if you are slightly nervous in any way, the banter and knowledge will put you at ease straight away and before you know it, it'll be over and you're qualified. I did a discovery dive with another local well known school initially and they nowhere near measured up to Wraysbury and their team. Just go here. Do it!
Just a quick line to say a HUGE THANK YOU for today. You were all really patient and really helpful, you gave me a lot of confidence in new surroundings, new suit and a new type of diving, dry and fresh water as well.
All really excellent, I learned tons and enjoyed myself immensely, so thanks again.
Had a great day yesterday at Wraysbury, completing my drysuit training. As always everyone was really helpful and friendly, particular thanks to Yvonne for her patience and instruction
Did a new diver dive here a few months ago and today I finished my Advanced Adventure Diver certification along with Drysuit speciality. Mark is an excellent teacher and very good and explaining theory and why one does this or that. My new diver dive was with Yvonne and she's just as good! They both let me bring & use my own gear and helped me familiarise myself with it and correct mistakes.
Had an excellent two days at Wraysbury dive centre doing the Advanced open water course. Thanks to the instructors Yvonne, Dave and Ian who gave us a good mix of learning and fun things to do.
Personally I enjoyed this course more than the open water course, partly because its warmer now and also the nerves have gone so I picked up the skills easier. I find these courses are great value as all the equipment is included in the price.
Absolutely magical experience - they are so professional especially Yvonne who runs the school and they really help you when you are having problems. Mine was flooding the mask but soon overcame that plus slightly nervous of confined areas after experiencing a water ski accident whilst in Australia but they got me to focus my fears and my last dive was in the containment area and knowing I was in good hands I was fine. Can't praise them enough and my buddies were fabulous - looking to continue with their dives once a month. We all get anxious but as the book saids stop and breath slowly !!! Can't wait for my next dive and so excited about being part of the PADI association.
Such a fabulous diving facility. My 12 year old son just passed his open water diving course today. Thank you so much to all the staff particularly Andy (his fantastic diving instructor) and Yvonne who runs the facility. It is such a beautiful setting and a very friendly place. We would highly recommend it. The price for the course included everything. Equipment; gas etc. There were no hidden charges.
Not only the best place to learn to dive but to also continue with. The staff are amazing, they really know their stuff and you come away with the impression that they're not in it for the money at all. They want you to have fun but ultimately they care about your safety (No matter how much abuse Mark seems to throw at you ) and they won't sign your qualification off until you're actually ready! I've used another dive school but I've learnt so much more with the Wraysbury team and have more confidence in them! Any further qualifications I will no doubt do will definitely be with Wraysbury. Oh and the hot chocolates and cheesy chips are always worth having!
Place of awesome diving and awesome diving instructors.
The instructors are just awesome!! So helpful, kind, patient and fun. Feel so safe with them
Brilliant Staff, venue, lake. Did PADI Opwen Water and trainers were brilliant and very honest, kind and helpful. Would 100% recommend you go direct to the staff at Wraysbury Dive Centre as felt very safe and lots of fun. Doing more courses with them.
Great day on the TDI solo course at Wraysbury today. I reckon 3C is the perfect temperature to do the course in! The centre is well organised and run, friendly instructors and DMs and does a mean bacon cheese burger and cup of tea to warm you up between dives! Will definitely go back and explore the lake more thoroughly soon
I cannot thank everyone at wraysbury dive centre for every bit of patience and time they have given me. For the heartfelt advice and for cheering me on at every hurdle I have had in my diving journey so far. I can't wait to be back and underwater with them to continue to gain more confidence and hopefully get my padi diver but in all honesty these guys have taught me its the love of diving thats whats worth it all and I'm truly hooked (even if I have a wobble or two at times) . Seriously Thank you it would have been so easy to give up on my dream yet you have helped show me it's possible if you just keep trying. Much Love to you all your more than just a dive place to me.
Had a fantastic time with Yvonne, Dave, Sam, Nick and all my buddies over the last two weekends. The guys were great and it was a brilliant experience. Looking forward to following up with further dives to put it all into practice
I have absolutely nothing but respect for the team at WDC who I am also proud to call my friends. They always make you feel so welcome and are very knowledgeable on all things diving whether you’re a beginner or an expert. It’s also a really good place to dive!
A great place with great people. No better place to learn and to just go to enjoy a dive
A big thank you to Mark Bruce and the staff at Wraysbury Dive Centre, did my dry suit course today, Marks' knowledge is second to none, and his relaxed and friendly nature made it an absolute pleasure!!!! Can't recommend it highly enough.
I love this place! Food is amazing staff are uber friendly and Mark Bruce brings an abundance of knowledge and humour to what can be a dangerous sport!
Wraysbury is one of the greatest inland dive sites I have had the pleasure of diving at, the staff are extremely experienced and have a huge amount of knowledge which they gladly share with everyone. I personally have done a couple of courses with them which have been great fun and very informative. I cannot recommend these guys enough, even through I'm very new to diving I feel very welcome every time I pop in. The shop is great too as you can try before you buy as its a test centre which is great so you can be sure to get the right gear for you. I shall be using Wraysbury as my home dive site for as long as I can dive, I'm looking forward to the many more courses I will be doing here this year and in the future.
Had a great day at Wraysbury on Thursday doing SMB training with Mark who was fantastic. Saw one of the big pike, not the biggest I was told but since I have only seen toddlers there before I was thrilled. Thank you to all staff but especially Mark for making it such a great experience
What a place to learn to dive, amazing people Lyndsey, Yvonne, and even Duncan the Chelsea boy. Great tuition at your pace but most of all its was safe fun and great community feel. Think you've made another diver.
Mark and Yvonne are fantastic Instructors, couldn't have done it without them.
Great dive Center and superb team, all instructors are top class and if you have children and you want them to learn to dive this is the place
A great couple of days with helpful and knowledgable staff that made me feel welcome and safe. I will be back. Thank you very much
Myself and my partner completed the open water divers course and had a fantastic experience throughout the whole 4 days. All staff were very helpful, patient and knowledgable which made the whole experience a huge amount of fun! Despite the very cold temperatures (being the end of November) the staff ensured that we were warm and comfortable throughout which made the adverse conditions much more enjoyable resulting in plenty of laughter along the way. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is thinking of diving for the first time as could not have asked for better instructors!
Great time with Richard doing our Drysuit speciality. Friendly professional staff made us feel welcome and valued and even more importantly, great bacon sarnies!
