By far the most professional and motivating dive school in the country. Thank Yu for giving me the confidence to pursue a career and hobby in this field. I can now travel the world knowing I am a safe and competent scuba diver. I look forward to seeing you on my return to do my instructor course with Yu. One in a million!
After 10 years and 6 months of completing my Divemaster qualification, I have finally found the right team to progress to Instructor with. PADI PRO here I come.
I have been following you on Facebook, you are doing the most fantastic job.
Great team
You are doing the very best go jobs a shining credit to the diving industry. Everyone is benefiting. Even the sharks!
If you want to learn to dive, improve your skills, or just to refresh yourself with some of the best teaching imaginable, then look no further. Diving with you diving will transform your life.

Best dive school I have ever experienced!!! Thank you so much guys... will be back soon for my instructor course!!
Yu taught me the skills needed to pass the open water course really well so I can dive on my MA in Marine Archaeology. I could not think of anyone as qualified, experienced and passionate as Yu to teach this excellent activity.
These guys are amazing
I think it is great what you guys are doing at the Aquatics Centre
Scuba diving with Yu Diving is brilliant
Once again may I thank you for opening this new window of excitement into my life.
You guys have re-ignited my passion for diving. I'm itching to get back into the water!!! thanks!!!
I have watched Yu training divers from primary school to retirement age. Your sessions are always fun, safe, well prepared & presented in a way that allows the student divers to learn the skills very well.
