Atlantic Scuba Dive Centre is based at Mabe, near Falmouth in Cornwall. At our premises we have a well stocked retail shop and service centre, air filling station and a large range of school/rental dive gear. We operate our own dive charter boat, ‘Stingray’, which is moored at Mylor in the Fal Estuary, which gives easy access to the local area.
‘Stingray’, is an MCA Category 4 coded 6.3m twin engined catamaran RHIB. It is available for charter to a wide range of dive sites in the area. It is also suitable for pleasure trips and wildlife watching trips for up to 11 passengers. Stingray is fully insured and carries all the required safety equipment to go up to 20 miles from a safe haven. Specialising in scuba diving around Falmouth Bay, Gerrans Bay, Veryan Bay and the Manacles, basically from Dodman point to the Lizard point. Falmouth Bay is an ideal location as it is protected from the predominant south westerly winds. With years of Scuba Diving experience in Cornwall, from Padstow to Plymouth, we can take you to some of the best scuba diving in Cornwall and the U.K. During calm weather the visibility around Cornwall can exceed 25m, with sea temperatures reaching over 16 degrees centigrade.
Atlantic Scuba’s dive school teaches a range of Scuba Diving courses from Scuba Diving International (SDI), as well as some Technical Diving International (TDI) courses. We also teach a range of the Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI) courses.
We can also offer escorted shore dives for qualified divers around the coast of Cornwall, not just in the Falmouth area. If you have never dived before, we can offer the Scuba Discovery Course (Try Dive), to see if you like it.

Some of the life we meet underwater around Cornwall.
Atlantic Scuba dive school, for all your recreational scuba diving needs in Cornwall, UK.
Atlantic Scuba was founded in 2007 by Mark Milburn. From very small beginnings, a shed in his garden, it has grown. There is now a well stocked retail shop, next to the extensively equipped dive school. Located on the outskirts of Mabe near Penryn/Falmouth, there is comfortable seating for people to visit and chat. Atlantic Scuba has it’s own Dive Charter Boat too, with a second one on it’s way.
Before Atlantic Scuba was officially started, it was known as something that was going to happen. In 2002 Mark bought his first major diving acquisition, Sub Aqua World in Port Gaverne. Sub Aqua World was a small dive centre, offering boat dives from their RHIB, air fills and PADI scuba diving courses. The boat had already been sold but the rest of the centres equipment, was later to become the start of Atlantic Scuba. It was also in 2002 that Mark bought his first RHIB, Wreck Hunter. Wreck Hunter was sold to help pay for the purchase of Stingray, it was subsequently bought back for use as a support and dive site search vessel.
After the official formation of Atlantic Scuba, premises were sought. Eventually, a suitable location was found at Mabe. Trenoweth Business Park was a disused quarry, owned by a local ex dive boat skipper, Shaun. Shaun used to own and operate Redeemer, followed by Autumn Dream (renamed Cousin Jack), trading as Bay Marine. Mark had dived from Shaun’s boats for several years and decided to take on a unit in his yard. Six months later, Atlantic Scuba expanded and took on the unit next to it, for equipment servicing and testing under the name of Cornwall Cylinder Testing. CCT started with the small compressor from Sub Aqua World and a very small air bank. Since then it has upgraded it’s compressor and currently runs a larger Bristol compressor, with the small one as a back up. The air bank grew when we acquired Bill Bowen’s air bank from Penzance, he retired from filling cylinders after 35 years on the quay so no longer needed it.
A year or so later, some of the assets of Whitsand Bay Divers were purchased, including it’s compressor, air bank, mixing panels and some of the school equipment and shop’s stock. Not long after that, most of the school equipment of Starfish Divers was also purchased. The next acquisition was the RHIB of Starfish Divers, called ‘Starfish Divers 1’. The Starfish Divers RHIB was originally Looe Divers boat, ‘Looe Diver 1’. It is now known as just ‘Starfish’, which fits quite well name wise as a sister vessel with Stingray.
Atlantic Scuba Dive Centre is based at Mabe, near Falmouth in Cornwall. At our premises we have a well stocked retail shop and service centre, air/nitrox/oxygen/trimix filling station and a large range of school/rental dive gear. There is also ample parking. We operate our own dive charter boats, ‘Stingray’ is an MCA coded dive RHIB, ‘Moonshadow’ is an MCA coded Lochin 33 hard boat. Both are moored at Mylor, in the Fal Estuary, which gives easy access to the local area.
