About Kraken Diving

Scapa Flows Only Dive School!

Kraken Diving was founded and is run by Master Scuba Diver Trainer + Tec Instructor Rob Slight and partner, Master Scuba Diver Trainer Margot Watson.

Both of us were lured up to Orkney to complete a Divemaster Internship with our friends over at Scapa Scuba and just kept coming back! Rob completed his in 2013 and fell in love with the wrecks of Scapa Flow. In order to come back he completed his PADI instructor course and has been working as a dive instructor ever since (with the odd year out to travel).

Margot completed her Divemaster in 2019 which turned out to be the final year Scapa Scuba were running as a dive school. As two huge wreckheads and lovers of Orkney life, we decided to open up Kraken Diving to ensure there was still an easy and accessible way for people to dive in one of he worlds best wreck sites.

Anyway, enough about us, what about Kraken Diving?

Committed to Safe Divers

  • We pride ourselves on making safe divers. Our experience in technical diving means we can provide a high standard of guiding and instruction too for those beginning diving or taking their skills to the next level.

  • Each of our courses has more than the minimum required dive time in order to give as much time as possible for skill development. 

  • We offer a personal service and level of attention, with a maximum of 2 students per course or 3 on guided dives.

  • On our professional and technical courses, video is used as a teaching tool as part of the debrief.


High Quality Equipment and Modern Techniques

  • We use only the highest quality equipment and modern techniques including Long Hose Regulators and Wing style BCD's with a backplate, which helps with streamlining in the water and eases the transition to Technical Diving for those interested.

  • As well as giving you more time developing your skills in the water and making you a safer diver and a better member of the dive team, this also means that you get more time to explore some of the best shipwrecks in Europe, what a combination!

Committed to the Environment

  • As a 100% Project AWARE Dive Center, we make a donation to support underwater conservation for every student we certify.

  • We make regular Dives against Debris, and strive to include the opportunity to do so in all of our dives and courses.

  • Partnered with local charities which aim to reuse and remove ocean and beach litter from Orkney.

  • Teamed up with local shellfish companies to PUT BACK lobsters into the ocean instead of removing them.
