After many successful years of diver training from beginner to technical mixed gas levels under PADI, IANTD and TDI respectively, we are no longer able to offer in-house certification courses due to our growing work commitments and increased cooperation with local and visiting instructors & dive schools using our facilities. While we continue to address the ongoing demand for UE’s specialised equipment preparation & fitting for visitors, Underwater Explorers is no longer ‘a dive school’ but continues to be a TDI facility.
