We dived with Scimitar yesterday, and it was a great experience.

We did this as one of our PADI Specialist Courses (Boat Diver) - and the teaching that we were given was of a very high standard, whilst still being good fun.

The boat is lovely and run by a great skipper (Smudge).

The staff were really friendly and and helpful, but very professional at the same time.

The equipment that the operation has for rental / loan is of an excellent standard.

Very highly recommended as a diving boat for the Weymouth Area.

Thank Albia-Newton

Spent a very enjoyable weekend with these people. All the staff are knowledgable, friendly, helpful. The post dive hot drinks and food is instantaneous. Our group are returning soon for another weekend.
If you are looking for diving in this area then do not hesitate to take a look at Scimitar. You will not be disappointed.

These have got to be the best diving company in Weymouth/Portland. Everything a diver needs is nearby, dive shops, accommodation and a gas fill station. The boats and crew are top quality, I would not dive with any other company. Staff are friendly and helpful
