Our Story

Scuba 2000 was founded by Karen Parrott in 1995. Karen established the company in Uckfield, East Sussex.

With a strong team behind her, Karen evolved Scuba 2000 into a very successful business, with an outstanding reputation for quality, professional and safe training.

Through our long-standing partnership with Scuba Schools International (SSI), we provide a full range of scuba diving courses from 8 years plus. We also offer family-friendly diving trips and holidays, have an active dive club and stock a range of professional quality equipment, from suppliers such as Mares and Cressi.

SSI Training by Scuba 2000

In 2017, Karen relocated to Cornwall, where the Scuba 2000 HQ and resort is now located. Cornwall is renowned for hosting some of the best diving in the UK and is a popular tourist destination. With better-than-average visibility and a wide range of diving conditions, this is a prime location for us to offer all levels of training, from beginners to advanced.
