Scuba Diving with Yomps

From Learning to Dive to Becoming a Dive Professional

Whether you want to learn to dive, get involved in marine conservation, or become a PADI dive professional by doing a Divemaster course or even become an instructor with an IDC course, then we’ve got it covered at Yomps.

Learning to Dive
Always wanted to dive but can’t cope with the cold sea or don’t want to pay a fortune getting ripped off in an expensive country? Then why not learn with Yomps in countries such as Ecuador, Venezuela, Mexico, America and Fiji. Theres nothing better than diving in the Carribean, Pacific and other great locations.
Depending on which course you go on, there are also opportunities to learn another language, get involved in marine research projects, or go on adventure trips.

Marine Conservation
You can learn to dive and get involved in Marine conservation as well, or go as a diver and learn another PADI qualification.

PADI Professional Courses
If you want to get into the dive industry or just want to get to a good level of experience and do lots of diving then why not look at doing a professional qualification. Whether you want to be a Divemaster or go even further and become an instructor then see our trips below.

Tom, the Volunteer Coordinator at Yomps, recently visited the Mexico Marine Research Conservation volunteering project and has created an online account of his experiences. So if you're interested in reading more about this particular volunteering trip, flicking through recent photo's and checking out some of his diving movies, then visit his Mexico Marine Conservation Blog (opens in a new window).
