Nemes Holborough Lakes (Snodland)

NEMES Diving and Watersports Academy provide an excellent range of Scuba Diving opportunities and Water Sports. We are based at Holborough Lakes in Snodland, Kent, an 8 acre lake with 11 m depth. As well as Scuba Diving the clear, clean water has also become a very popular venue for open water swimming training with regular free coaching sessions and swim club and also Canoeing, Kayaking and activity days.


Heated changing rooms, air fills, servicing, shop, rental equipment and free parking all at the water’s edge. Free tea or coffee is also provided to our guests. For scuba diving we have training platforms at various depths and under water attractions such as boat and vehicle wrecks, swim through tyres and lots of surprises including the odd gargoyle waiting to say hello!

Recognised as an excellent PADI Recreational Facility, we provide courses on site from complete beginners taking your first breath underwater to professional level including TEC and EFR training. For the kids we offer BubbleMaker and Seal Team with great games and activities in the pool so the whole family can get involved.

We organise regular dive trips in the UK and holidays abroad as well as excursions and social events. We are open all year and there’s always something going on! We run regular weekend and mid week dives, often in the English Channel, Wreck or Drift diving. Our trips give divers a chance to experience new dive sites, meet new people and enjoy the abundance of marine life the underwater world has to offer. Our Red Sea trips are very popular and non-divers are also welcome.

Our friendly, experienced instructors will make sure the time you spend with us will be enjoyable, safe and fun. We love what we do and we want you to have the best experience possible. Pay us a visit and find out why we have been called ‘Kent´s Hidden Gem´. We look forward to meeting you soon!
