A New Milestone With Review 30

“Truly brilliant!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 28 July 2013 NEW
Taking the Open Water course under Debbie's and John's supervision wasn't just an efficient and interesting way of getting a licence to do something that I've been wanting to do for years, but also one of the most amazing holiday experiences I can recall. They're both really fun, cheerful, relaxed, patient, flexible, and willing to pass all their broad and impressive knowledge of marine life and scuba diving to everyone willing to immerse themselves in the mysterious underwater world. Debbie and John succeeded in creating a relaxed and cosy atmosphere in their centre (unlike in many other, "mass training" centres), which really helps when it comes to asking "silly questions", making mistakes, or having to repeat the same action for the 100th time. Moreover, it's likely you'll be taking the course alone/in small groups, which naturally creates a better learning environment. Having got a lot of diving experience, John and Debbie are reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable instructors one doesn't fear to trust even when diving in the open water for the first time in their life. I was impressed that both of them really try to understand their student's psyche, adjusting training to each individual- eg. I had huge troubles completing the skill of taking the mask off underwater and simply refused to do it. Thanks to Debbie, who calmed me down, gave me a day break from the task, and did simple exercises in the shallow water before the final attempt, I managed to complete my course and I am now a happy open water scuba diver :)! I really recommend this centre to everyone- if you're fascinated by the underwater world and scuba diving, I guarantee you'll be even more so after meeting Debbie and John :)!

After having completed our open water course 6 months before our trip to Cyprus, we were a little nervous about getting back in the water. We immediately felt at ease with Jonny and Debbie and with their guidance got back into it with ease!
We were only planning on doing one dive with them while on holiday but we need up going back twice! The evening dive spotting a moray eel and finding the pots were highlights for us, not to mention the swim-through!
I cannot recommend this dive centre and Jonny and Debbie enough for both beginners and experienced divers. You can be sure your time with them will be fantastic and will not hesitate to go back to them when in Cyprus again!

Thanks guys for such a lovely review, hope to see you again soon.

Choosing to dive with this centre was the best decision we made on this holiday. Both Debbie and John are extremely friendly and very considerate. I really felt that my wants and needs were put first, something you dont always get. Did some great dives and really enjoyed my time with them.

Had a fantastic time with Marine Divers doing the advanced Open Water with my 13 Year Old Son. Debbi, Sean & Jonny were great with us and the course was perfect to enhance our dive Skills. We did Peak Performance Bouyancy,Ssearch & Recovery, Navigation, Deep and Night to round it off perfectly. If Carlsberg did Dive Centers, it would definitely be Marine Divers!

“FANTASTIC pt 2!!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 16 July 2013 NEW
As promised in my last review I returned to Marine Divers 2 weeks ago to, once again, be welcomed and treated like no-where else I have dived previously.
Jonny took me to White River near Lara Beach to experience 'The Cathedral' and to show me a dive site that I had not previously done. 
Once again, Jonny was the perfect host showing professionalism and good knowledge of the site.

Later that week we went to the Zen again where I got great footage of our swim through. A great day!!

Debbi was, again as always, happy to accommodate anything that was presented to her during a difficult week due to the West Mediterranean storms aftermath that had disrupted the previous days. Still smiling, still helpful and always professional.

Marine Divers are a professional, helpful, accommodating, well equipped company that I would recommend to any diver, be it beginner of experienced and, you've guessed it, I look forward to seeing them again very soon.

“A wonderful establishment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 15 July 2013 NEW
The truth is I have deleted my last review which contained a typo and was not generous enough. I knocked off a star because the diving round Cyprus isn't great - with the exception of the celebrated Zenobia wreck. But that wasn't fair. This husband and wife team are a joy to dive with. They are relaxed and confident and use really good equipment. No, Cyprus diving is easy and uneventful, but what a great team to learn with, or to improve your skills with. If I dive again around Cyprus I will definitely dive with Marine Divers.

Zenobia Trip!

Just had a great day on the Zenobia thanks to Lynne, Elizabeth, John McCluskey and Nick Walmsley. And also thanks to Jonny G for finally letting me out!! Cheers guys for diving with us xx

Our 24th Excellent Review on TripAdvisor!

5 of 5 starsReviewed 13 July 2013 NEW
My girlfriend and I were on holiday in Coral Bay in June '13 and I had decided before we went that I wanted to go scuba diving - had NEVER done it before! Googled 'diving in cyprus' and checked them out on trip advisor and decided they sounded like the best bet for amateurs like ourselves.

Was in contact with the instructors before we went on holiday and was very friendly- booked our slot via their website after discussion on their facebook page - which is monitored regularly.

Safe to say, we were not disappointed!!! Was a FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE and we managed to do a good few hours with them one morning. Our instructor, Johnny, came with us and we had a little bit of a theory/safety brief beforehand, and shown how to use the kit - all was explained thoroughly and clearly! Then we went for our dive- which was brilliant. Johnny was with us the whole time and helped my gf with any difficulties she had to begin with.

I can thoroughly recommend these for a friendly, chatty, welcoming dive experience from people who really know what they're doing. Its a great family-owned dive centre not a big company. Also, they are British which makes understanding instructions really easy!!! Really want to go again!!!! Dont worry if you've got no experience diving, the instructors are really patient and helpful and will help COMPLETE beginners and get you diving!! Thanks guys! :)

    Thanks Sean for all your hard work!

    After 2 amazing dives yesterday with my buddy, i just did 2 wonderful DSD's (discover scuba diving) and then assisted on a deep adventure dive, just got home and going out for a night adventure dive shortly, what a lovely weekend.

    23rd Excellent Review!!

    5 of 5 starsReviewed 5 July 2013 NEW
    I have to say, choosing Marine divers was one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. My partner and i had such a great time with Jonny and Debbi, we weren't just customers to them, more like friends, and that was clear from the moment we walked into the dive centre. My partner did her discover scuba dive with Debbi and enjoyed it so much she came back for a 2nd dive. As for myself, i'd always wanted to dive the Zenobia, and i have to say i was one of the best dives i've done, a great experience and one i'll never forget. A big thanks to Jonny and Debbi for their help, support and for just making it a fantastic time.

    Thanks so much John and Nicky!

    In the very safe hands of Jonny and Sean we quickly found ourselves under the beautiful clear waters of the Med off the coast of Paphos in Cyprus and experiencing a wonderful new world. The whole team, including Debbie of course, made sure that we received the best few hours possible. Excellent - a big 10/10 for all. Thanks again guys I wish you every possible success and honestly can't recommend you highly enough to anyone with any interest in diving. Bill...

    We took an Open Water course with Debbi and were lucky enough to have one on one training for me and my son George as Sean, a trainee instructor, was helping out. We arranged the course before we got to Cyprus and Debbi & Jonny ensured we got the support materials well ahead of time so we could spend as much time as possible in the water when we got there and complete the course in 3 days! Debbi and Jonny could not do enough for us and even gave us film of our underwater experiences on DVD to take home! Great teachers , very friendly and George and I can't wait to get back to diving as soon as we can now that we are qualified divers thanks to Marine Divers! Many, many thanks - David and George.
