    Stoney Cove is an excellent location for those who wish to begin or improve their Scuba Diving. Most people were experienced divers but there were a lot of dive schools there too sharing their knowled...  more »

    Dive here on a regular basis. Great for training and practice. The changing rooms and showers are the best at any dive site i've been to. It does get very busy at the weekends, so prebook a car park s...  more »

  • Good inland diving, even better are the SUPERB staff. Helpful, knowledgeable and amazing if people need help.
  • Did the PADI rescue diver course here, great professional and friendly staff and a great location...wont be going back there in the winter though ;)
  • As well as diving, it's a great place for swimming too. Great views of the stone quarry walls. The shop, while primarily being for diving, is also useful for swimmers selling such things as tow floats, and gloves and booties. Being 35m deep at the deepest bit, it doesn't warm up as quickly as other locations. But, the water is clear and fresh. Watch out for Mr Goose however.
  • Awesome place to spend a day diving! Park up, have a peruse in their shop that has a large range of items, before prepping for your dive have a full English breakfast in the on site pub (while watching others dive on the balcony). Then your onto the best bit..... the diving! I am relatively new to this site but I had the chance to see something rare.... a guy diving with a vintage 90 year old ex-navy helmet with airline to the surface! It just showed how far technology we use has come along since then! Some of the best preserved wrecks I've seen, including timbers from an Edwardian ship!
  • I go to Stoney Cove to scuba dive. You can hire all equipment for a fee (of course) and the staff have always been friendly and patient when I can't find a dry suit with small enough neck seal. The bar on site is reasonably priced and always has a friendly atmosphere after a day of diving.
