Scuba Diving Courses Advanced

Keen divers visiting Benidorm can improve their skills by enrolling in a selection advanced scuba diving courses. Compared to the world's landmass, our oceans are still relatively unexplored and countless mysteries of the deep are just waiting to be discovered. Many people during a seaside holiday choose to try scuba diving as a half day activity which is the cheapest and most basic way of getting a glimpse of the underwater world. Some find it's not for them and others just can't get enough, and go on to complete a PADI or SSI certified course such as Open Water Diver (link) which is the most popular of all scuba diving courses.

Greenwich Diving Centre

Greenwich Diving Centre is run by an expert team of qualified divers and instructors and offer all available standard, and advanced scuba diving courses from Discover Scuba Diving to Diving Instructor, as well as a number of speciality diving courses. The dive centre is ideally situated in the beautiful Bay of Altea, which is just a short drive or bicycle ride from Benidorm and a popular holiday destination for all types of water sports. The centre got its name from the marina where it is based, Marina Greenwich, famous due to it being the only marina in the world through which passes the Meridian of Greenwich. Having already certified over 3000 divers, all Greenwich Diving instructors have a wealth of diving knowledge and endeavour to be as flexible as possible with all their available courses and dive packages.
