About us

Welcome to our MOD Scuba Training Provider for Resettlement and ELC funded Programs:

Who are Dive In?:

Dive In was established in 1993 by Clive Martin who himself was a serving member of the Royal Engineers until the mid 1980’s. Clive, along with his immediate family,  (Father and Brothers),  have a cumulative service of nearly 90 years in HM Forces  whilst serving in the Royal Engineers and the Army Physical Training Corps. 

Dive In continuously expanded from inception, very quickly securing their place as Leaders in the Recreational and Professional Scuba Training Arena, so much so that in 2005 the company not only achieved the unsurpassed status of becoming a PADI CDC facility, (Career Development Centre), the highest accolade available to PADI Dive Centres, but we were also awarded PADI's most prestigious accolade for our "Outstanding Contributions to the Diving Industry" by the CEO of PADI Worldwide, Drew Richardson. 

In 2012 on reaching 20 years as a PADI Professional, Clive received yet another outstanding accolade from PADI Worldwide for his “Lifetime Contributions to the Cyprus Diving Industry”, clearly this award truly acknowledged the efforts and commitment over the years whilst building the Dive In brand.
