Scuba Diving Holidays by Divecrew

Divecrew excels in scuba diving holidays, either group or independent traveler, diver or non diver, we cater for all.  Check out our schools ACADEMY OF SCUBA DIVING and our schools SCUBA DIVING EXPEDITIONS. What makes Divecrew different? Our escorted holidays provide divers with incredible experiences all round the world and the lead Professional Team member will ensure our guests receive added value on their precious holiday experience.

Your holiday experience will start long before you head for the airport as you will be kept informed by the lead Divecrew Team member with information on the destination, dive sites, local knowledge and a free divers check list in the weeks leading up to your holiday. Divecrew wants to ensure you are informed, relaxed and therefore you enjoy a totally stress free holiday from day one.

You will also be invited to a pre-holiday “Pool Party” at one of the local swimming pools before your trip. This is a great way to try out any new equipment, receive a free tune up prior to your holiday or take part in a free DSMB workshop. Meet your fellow divers, before check in! Following the Pool Party we meet at a local country pub to socialize and view photographs of your destination and what you are likely to see before you fly.

Please note: The prices quoted are for the first 12 places only and subject to a holding deposit. Airline prices continually move upward and we recommend a quick deposit to secure the best price.

If you are interested in any of our planned holidays, contact the dive centre for more information


Divecrew have created another unique programme for schools, colleges and universities. Divecrew can also arrange for individuals to attend the programme as a an independent diver. Divecrew  inconjuction with Roots El Quesier (Pharoh Divers) and the University of Glasgow have created a truly wonderful marine science week where divers add to the Open Ocean Science Centre who are conducting a long term reef and fish assemblage project. 

El Quesier has been especially selected as it has incredible house reefs (north and south), on site marine science lab, and resident marine scientsists. Divecrew have dived with Pharoh Divers numerous times as this is the same venue where we teaching amputee British Soldiers to scuba dive. Pharoh Divers are safe operators and meet the high standards of Divecrew. Having a house reef opposite Roots Camp, divers can dive when they want as many times as they want. 

El Quesier is an ideal location as not only are there incredible house reefs, but visits can also be arranged to mangroves, sea grass meadows, fringing reefs, sand embankments and fosil coral fields. Working with a dedicated team of marine biologists  who take care of all logistics and scientific excursions. 

Operation Eagle Ray has been specially designed to ensure school divers maximise their time and get the most scientific and diving qualifications out of a one week or two weeks Programme. Divecrew will underatke the PADI Referral with the students right here in the UK in the school pool. Then travel to Roots escorting the group of students and teachers to Roots. Day one and two will see students complete their PADI Open Water and start the scientific programme. This programme is packed with activities. Students will return as PADI Open Water Divers, OOSC Survey Divers, OOSC Red Sea Fish ID Divers and knowing they are contributing to a long term data collection. The scientific data collection is live on line so even when returned to the UK, students can see the collection of data growing.

Prices start at £1,650 per student for one week based on sharing. Prices are dependent to air costs and dates. A specific quote will be obtained prior to any commtment. This is an incredibly good value expedition when comparing it to the likes of Wallacea. 

Divecrew is a schools specialist and all the Professional School Instructors are Enhanced DBS licensed. Fully insured. Annually assessed by PADI Master Instructors for skill techniques and teaching. Divecrew is the UK's only Gold Star IDC Centre and PADI 5 Star IDC Centre.
