Dived with friends and our timing combined with the worst viz in ages but I imagine normally it would be as good as the setting and lovely. Staff are not the friendliest (all 3/4 except at the entrance) this was a big disappointment, is unbelievable and unacceptable....... don’t ever forget this is YOUR business and you are in a service industry. Air filling is a serious task to get from water to air station and some kind of shuttle should be considered as this is close on impossible for older, less fit divers. I would not travel and stay over to go again but if it’s easy to get to, go and try it out for yourself as the huge fish are an absolute delight and unlike the staff are very friendly and will swim around you to simply ‘sit’ and watch while you do a safety stop!

Took my son to complete his PADI open water. Great facilities and well managed. All staff working hard in a covid secure way and they could not have been more helpful or friendly. From car parking, cafe and tank refill - brilliant experience. Thankyou.

Recently visited Capernwray for the first time with our Dive Club to complete our Advanced Open Water, and we loved it here. So much to see and Look at underwater. We returned last weekend again and can’t wait to come back. Great value for kit hire and entry. Seems very busy at weekends in the car park, but once your in the water no issues. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.

Response from car0lhack, General Manager at Capernwray Diving Centre

I wish you would have said something at the time as we would have appreciated the opportunity to remedy anything which was not right. It is unusual as We use all locally produced Real ingredients not mass produced catering stuff and people usually like our food. Sorry you did not enjoy your visit

Sunny day and busy weekend - car park pretty full . Booking system obviously working well though . Certainly not 150 people trying to get in together as described previously ...maybe 4 ?? Loads of room to swim . Far fewer than the lake district - Windermere - where i loved to go ...full of 1000's of people and inflatable unicorns ... All procedures working well in line with Covid recommendations.... absolute life save for getting active and outside . Thank You.
