Gatwick Scuba was formed by Jason Linbourne a PADI Course Director who started his diving journey over 30 years ago, he has been awarded the prestigious PADI Elite Instructor accreditation for the past 8 years in succession and taught over 2000 courses since starting the company along with his wife Hayley Linbourne who is a PADI Divemaster.
Gatwick Scuba aims to be flexible and to tailor courses to its customers’ requirements while complying with the high PADI standards. Our aim is to introduce people to the amazing world of diving. This does not only apply to the warm tropical waters but also the amazing adventures that can be had in UK diving. In order for our students to be comfortable all year round Gatwick Scuba teach all their courses in DRY SUITS when in open water.
We are pleased to offer some unique services such as home visits from the instructor's to provide a true one to one training experience or private pool sessions. This service may also be a family or small group of friends.
Given that diving is a social pastime many students opt for a group session which are run at our purpose built diver training facility in Lingfield, Surrey. Here you will get the chance to meet like-minded people interested in diving.
With our own Course Director we are also able to run taylor made IDC, MSDT and IDC Staff courses to suit our customers needs, all in our own purpose built training facility with a 32 degree heated pool.
