Dive Bermuda Opening New Technical Diving School and New Dive Center


Dive Bermuda, a leading scuba diving operator in Bermuda, has announced the opening of a new location and technical diving school in the Somerset area.

The new facility is conveniently located in western Bermuda, only 20 minutes from the Royal Naval Dockyard cruise port, giving cruise passengers easy access to some of the world’s best diving experiences. Dive operations and the technical diving school will begin at Somerset on May 1, 2023.

As one of only two technical dive training centers in Bermuda, Dive Bermuda’s new Somerset location is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a spacious classroom and gear room. Technical courses will be offered from SDI/TDI and include training in nitrox, sidemount, advanced deep and wrecks.

Mark Diel, the owner of Dive Bermuda, said:

“We are thrilled to expand our operations to Somerset and offer our customers even more opportunities to explore Bermuda’s stunning underwater world. Our new location is conveniently located for cruise passengers and provides easy access to some of the best dive sites in Bermuda.”

Diel added:

“We are excited to welcome visitors to our new location and share with them the incredible beauty and diversity of Bermuda’s underwater world.”

Bermuda is known as the wreck diving capital of the Atlantic. The shallow water wrecks such as the famous HMS Hermes and the Mary Celestia combined with the crystal-clear waters and abundant coral reefs, make it a popular destination for divers from around the world.
