Thanks for a fantastic weekend doing our Open water qualifying dives at Wraysbury. Must say that Lewis and I thoroughly enjoyed doing the course with the guys at DiveStyle, everyone made us feel welcome and standard of teaching was excellent. Special mention to Paul who couldn't be with us on the weekend but did most of our confined water dives.
Thanks guys and Alayne for starting us on our journey under the waves. Will definitely be back for further courses and look forward to seeing you all soon.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to DiveStyle's Paul and Gareth for running an excellent Rescue Diver course as Wraysbury today.
Perfect weather for AOW
I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Alayne and the team at Divestyle (based in Arborfield) for working with me in providing such an unforgettable afternoon for the Cubs of 1st Wokingham Scout Group.

The whole team at Divestyle have been brilliant! The instructors at the swimming pool were so professional and knowledgeable, whilst at the same time being so patient with all of the Cubs. Everybody that attended had such an amazing time. I can truly recommend DiveStyle to anyone that is looking at giving Scuba Diving a go.
Wow! 😍

A certificate of thanks for you support.
Thank you for your donation
Just a quick 60 second video from the Advanced Open Water Dive :)
Just popped down the shop to book my advanced open water course and kinda purchased a bundle 🙈 will be doing deep diver specialty, wreck diver specialty, underwater navigator and enriched air specialty.

Will be seeing some of you next month now 🤗 so excited 😆

Hi All, please be aware that we have a virtual assistant answering our main line, this is to ensure that we get all your calls and messages whilst still being underwater. Natasha is not a diver and is not based at the dive centre which is currently closed, but will record down your needs and pass them along, these may well be responded too out of normal working hours due to the busy summer season, many thanks The Blue Descent Team

[08/19/21]   Hi All, since there seems to be a lot of rumours regarding Blue Descent, we thought we would give you all an update, we have wanted to remain impartial and not necessarily implicate but its seems there is now a need, as everyone is aware there was a huge and detrimental flood within the main building, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage, upon health and safety inspections compromised asbestos was found within a number of areas in the building, this is a serious issues and has lead to even more damage etc, the building should have been ready on the 1st July, due to the unforseen issues this has been further delayed, the portacabin was a tempory solutions, all equipment etc is being stored safely within storage containers, that staff can access, our phone lines have been diverted to Blue Descents mobile phone, however this is not necessarily always answered, due to running a busy summer season, including a summer camp at one of our contracted pools within the Reading area, please leave a message and we will get in contact asap, you can also alternatively email [email protected], fingers crossed our building will be sorted soon.

If you would like to learn more about the issues regarding compromised asbestos, such as risk to life, please head over to the HSE website

Many Thanks

Blue Descent Team

Good news for divers if you have not seen this information yet 😁

Good news for divers if you have not seen this information yet 😁

[03/01/21]   DiveStyle Update:

As you are all aware since October 2020, we have been subject to the Tiers system and then a National Lockdown.

This has meant that all services had been put on hold until we could reopen.

Sadly on the 12th February the Dive Shop experienced a massive water leak causing a huge amounts of damage. Our landlord has been very supportive and our pro team have helped us out with cleaning out the unit.

A lot of the equipment that wasn’t meant to get wet got very wet and with no power this has become a challenge for the team. The Dive Shop with be going through vast amounts of repairs over the next few months.

The good news is we will have a temporary unit outside the Dive Shop so we will be able to trade from here once the government agrees we can open.

Questions & Answers!

In regards to Club Diving we had a calendar created for the year of 2021 we decided against publishing this as national lockdown has happened. We understand that you may have seen other clubs are organising club dives for the later part of 2021 and we would very much like to do the same.

Unfortunately until we can find out what the government has planned we feel it would become frustrating for divers when trips become cancelled last minute due to lockdown restrictions

DiveStyle Roadmap based on the Uk Goverments Roadmap

From 29th March

We will be able to meet one other person outside from another house hold and we have seen many dive location will start to reopen. The `Stay At Home’ rule will end on the 29th March allowing us to travel again to some costal dive locations. As this will be allowing us to meet 1 other person we still wont be able to organise any club or group diving.

We will be letting members putting up a post on the page seeking a buddy diver if required. Your need to keep the 2 metres away and if your being tested, let your buddy know or if your vaccine has been administered this could help you finding a buddy. Please remember to carry your Vaccine card with you.

No Earlier Than 12th April

If the government allows we will be able to open up the Dive Centre again to allow customers on site, this will be via an appointment system, so that we are able to control the numbers on site.

The pools are due to reopen, however this is for under 18's tranining only.

Not Before 17 May

The government will look to continue easing limits on seeing friends and family wherever possible, allowing people to decide on the appropriate level of risk for their circumstances.

This means that most legal restrictions on meeting others outdoors will be lifted - although gatherings of over 30 people will remain illegal.

With this in mind we will looking to restart the Club and Group Dives however places will be limited to a maximum of 30 and over 18's can return to the pools

COVID-Secure guidance will remain in place and our shop visit booking system will stay in place.

No Earlier Than 21st June

The government hopes to be in a position to remove all legal limits on social contact.

This will be subject to the results of a scientific Events Research Programme to test the outcome of certain pilot events through the spring and summer.

As we move through each of these phases in the roadmap, we must all remember that COVID-19 remains a part of our lives. We are going to have to keep living our lives differently to keep ourselves and others safe.

We will keep you updated as and when we can.

Help With Search The Recovery DiveStyle, organized by Danny Stepney

Hi Everyone,

Due to two bust water mains the building has been flooded out, beyond recognition and has sustained a very large amount of damage, we are trying to raise funds to enable us to reopen.

The Covid-19 restrictions in 2020 and now 2021 have only allowed us to open for 12 weeks in the past 12 months and this has had a massive impact on our company.

Over the last 20 years DiveStyle has delivered over 10,000 diving qualifications and has helped people explore, be inspired, and educated people from all walks of life, but with this blow we have been left helpless and need your help

We are now calling on your support to help us to be able to continue the work we do, if you can't help us with money but your able to help in other ways please get in contact with us.

* We are looking for help to sort out all of the damaged equipment

* Space to store the equipment to try and dry it out as all the electric are unsafe.

*Depending on the outcome we are also trying to find alternative building to use as our centre.
