Introduction to Scuba Mallorca
Hi, I’m Tom. Scuba Mallorca is my business, and scuba diving is my personal passion. I was just ten years old when I first came to Mallorca to learn to dive and instantly fell in love.
So Mallorca it was, its home of some of the best diving to be found anywhere in the world. This is where I learnt to dive. But that’s not quite the whole of my story.
This was back in 2000. My parents found the best local company for me to learn with. It was a small family business and took real care of its clients and customers. The instructors knew what they were doing; they knew the dive sites; and they were keen to share their love of the water, consequently I learnt to dive with the best on the island and came back year after year.
By the time I was fourteen the business owners had temporary guardianship of me during the school holidays. I spent every summer working with them, diving with them, and learning about their business.
Those business owners were Mick and Jessie Elliot. The business was Scuba Mallorca. Today Mick and Jessie are successfully retired. When their business needed another partner I didn’t hesitate and in 2012/2013 i bought the business from them.
They feel like part of my family. This business, this island, the diving – it is in my blood. I think the ten year old that stood here and dreamed of underwater adventure perhaps never dared hope that one day he would own the business. In terms of a dream coming true, though, it’s pretty special.
I hope you can spend some time with us, and will feel the same way too.
ABOUT THE AREA
We are based in Port de Pollenca, a former fishing village with a laid-back friendly atmosphere in a tranquil and sheltered horseshoe bay at the northern end of the island.
The resort is a keen favourite for families, couples and anyone who appreciates stunning scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and a slightly quieter life than the hustle and bustle of the southern resorts. The magnificent stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range provide shelter, and the coastline and inshore area offer a wide choice of dive sites suitable for everyone from the complete novice through to the accomplished and experienced diver. Add to this great restaurants and plenty of accommodation; an abundance of natural flora and fauna; and all this in less than an hour’s drive from Palma airport, it is plain to see why so many visitors return time and time again to this beautiful location.
You will find us just a couple of minutes stroll and not quite a hundred metres from the marina. Our full service dive shop and PADI 5 Star IDC centre can supply all of your equipment needs. You can talk to our fully trained, knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff. You can discuss your needs with our experienced instructors. You can arrange any level of PADI courses from beginner to pro with our multi-lingual instructors.
Mick and Jessie set the business up in 2000. One of their first customers was a ten year old Tom. Mick and Jessie helped that young boy discover a world he loved. Year after year he came back, and now he is an expert diver, instructor, and runs the business himself. While other dive centres have come and gone, we believe it is our attention to caring; our family principles and our second-to-none local knowledge and experience that have helped make us the oldest and one of the most respected independent dive centres in the north of Mallorca.
We offer a full range of diving adventures from absolute beginners and kids to daily boat dives for qualified divers. If your aim is to become a diving professional, we can also assist you with a PADI Instructor Development Course which is held regularly here at our shop. So if you have the urge to submerge, get in touch and let us take you on some of the best dives in the Mediterranean.
