School Dive Trip | Financial Security and Integrity
At 321dive we are fortunate and proud of our team that we have assembled - both in resorts and in the UK.
All of our staff are ex-teachers, and we recruit only those that have had experience in leading school dive trips for the state, academy or private sectors. That way we believe we can talk to our client schools with real authority and advise based upon our own experiences - and not a profit margin sheet!
We are the only tour operator in the UK to be able to do so.

321dive Teacher's Pack
Based upon our own experiences of leading school dive trips, 321dive has put together a comprehensive Teacher's Pack. This pack includes the Risk Management System. It also includes everything else you will need from letter templates to posters. Teachers have access to the pack at the time of a confirmed assembly launch date.
Risk Management System (RMS)
321dive continually risk assesses all of our Hotel, Dive Clubs, Transport and Equipment partners. Together these procedures form the comprehensive Risk Management System (RMS). The RMS has been developed and continually revised over a significant period of time, and is based upon schools' individual experiences. This substantial document is available as part of the unique 321dive Teachers Pack at the time of booking.
Do it right first time, and with total safety.
321dive is proud that all of our pupils and teachers have returned safely from our trips following the above rationale.
Many schools booking with us comment on the fact that with our background as teachers ourselves 321dive is uniquely placed to advise on safety on school trips. Many believe it is this strength that sets us apart from our competitors.
All of our staff at 321dive are professionally trained in all areas of health and safety.
