Diverse Scuba shuts down


Diverse Scuba

Essex-based dive centre Diverse Scuba has shut down after 20 years of operation due to the loss of its unique set-up at a motel with an inviting freeform pool, classroom and shop.

The PADI five-star IDC centre operated out of the Ye Olde Plough House Motel in Bulphan, Essex, but due to circumstances outside of their control, the Diverse Scuba team have had to announce the closure of the centre.

In a statement released on social media, the team said ‘our centre is now closed. It is with a heavy heart and for reasons beyond our control we have to say goodbye after 20 years of diving. We would like to say a huge thank you to all our loyal customers over the years and you will all be sorely missed as you have all become friends. We do hope that you stay in contact and have many scuba diving adventures in the future'.

Learned to dive with Diverse 6 years ago and have made many good friends using them. Very sad.
