Welcome to Dive With Jimmy

Bedfordshire's premier underwater adventure centre.

At Dive With Jimmy we specialise in teaching both British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) and Scuba Schools International (SSI) courses, from beginner recreational courses through to extended range and technical courses. We are conveniently located in Kempston, Bedfordshire which provides easy access and travel to many UK diving sites. Whether you want to learn how to dive or develop new skills, we pride ourselves on giving our students the best training and knowledge to help them in their scuba diving journey.

At Dive With Jimmy we feel divers should be equipped with the tools they need to enjoy their diving, whether here in the UK or in a tropical location. We offer many specialty courses to help you along your journey from Drysuit to Marine Ecology to Wreck Diving.

We believe in quality over quantity and only run small classes; our maximum recreational courses are 4 students to 1 instructor and our technical classes are a maximum of 2 students to 1 instructor, and we run courses even for one student. As standard in our Open Water / Ocean Diver classes, we also include Nitrox and Computer courses, two vital tools for any diver.

Our compressor facility is up and running for your gas filling and blending, please contact us for our latest prices. We also have a showroom on site which stocks all the essentials for diving, and we are very excited to be Shearwater dealers.

With years of knowledge and experience, we are here to give each student the best experience to get the most from their diving journey.

SSI Explorers

The Explorers programme is an offline, book-based learning experience, intended to encourage children to interact directly, not virtually, with the marine environment. As they get older, they can get involved with our digital course offerings at a completely different level using their Explorers skills to enhance their understanding and training.

SSI Snorkel and Scuba Explorers makes snorkelling and  diving for kids simple and fun.
