ABOUT 
US
Vivian Dive Site is an old slate quarry, located in the stunning Snowdonia, Llanberris. The site offers fantastic visibility all year around, as unlike most dive sites, there is little silt. Vivian is probably the most picturesque dive site that you will find and whilst you are off diving, there are lots of other fun things for the family to do, including walks, museams and riding the railine up Snowdon. 

Vivian is operated by the well known UK based PADI diving agency, Duttons Divers. We therefore offer onsite training, should you wish to learn to dive in this amazing location, or enhance your Scuba Diving Skills.

The dive site itself offers a maximum depth of 22 meters, making this the perfect location for novice divers, as well as the more experienced. 

Vivian is the ondly dive site to have an onsite diving cage, so to all of you instructors out there looking for a perfect place to teach, you have found it. We offer the training cage to be hired out for exclusive training, cheaper than any swimming pool and in a much nicer setting!
