Hertfordshire dive guide

Hertfordshire is located east of England. Hertfordshire's diving centres offer courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced divers alike. Hertfordshire isn't exposed to open water, therefore most diving activities are conducted in inland dive sites.

Always dive according to your level of training. Never enter the water without checking with the local dive center for safety, additional information, level required for each dive site and without being accompanied by a professional. All the information provided is purely informative for our readers and shouldn't be used as is to plan your immersion.

In the Hertfordshire diving centers you can choose from a wide choice of courses which are sanctioned on completion through one of the renowned certification agencies. The diving clubs organise regular meetings usually once a week and organise dive trips to other regions in Britain or abroad. Inland dive sites are quite popular because the beginners can gain new skills or train. Once they are confident in the water outings to the UK coast are organised to places like Cornwall, Devon, Dorset etc...Trips abroad are regularly organised as well.
