#26 - Kraken Diving


We are proud to be the only Diving School in Scapa Flow, Orkney. We are here for anybody that is interested in exploring one of the best wreck diving sites in the world!

Here at Kraken Diving we are not trying to compete with other dive centres, this is because we know that everyone wants something different from their dive centres! So here are some details on us to help you decide if we are the centre for you

  • All of our courses and dives are carried out by instructors that have done hundreds if not thousands of dives on the various wrecks of Scapa Flow, meaning they have the knowledge to guide you and show you the best areas.

  • We pride ourselves on making safe  divers. Our experience in technical diving means we can provide a high standard of guiding and instruction too!

  • Each of our courses has more than the minimum required dive time in order to give as much time as possible for skill development. So if you want a quick flying course we probably aren't the school for you!

  • We start each course with equipment set-up to ensure we have the best and most streamlined equipment for you to use during the course and on future dives.

  • We offer a personal service and level of attention, with a maximum of 2 students per course or 3 on guided dives.

  • On our professional and technical courses then video is used as a teaching tool as part of the debrief.

As well as giving you more time developing your skills in the water and making you a safer diver and a better member of the dive team, this also means that you get more time to explore some of the best shipwrecks in Europe, what a combination!

Basking sharks are, of course, plankton feeders, and as such do not have teeth, which erases one obvious reason to avoid them! However, their sheer size (up to 10 m. in length, and up to 7 Tonnes in weight) should make anyone aware that they posses incredible physical power
