Scuba T’s was founded by Colin ‘Toddy’ Irvine who is a fully qualified, PADI Master Scuba Diver
Trainer. Scuba T is short for Scuba Toddy's “Toddy” being my middle name and a wee nickname.
Colin has been diving for roughly 5 years now from the tropical seas of the Spanish
Isles to the freezing cold lochs of Scotland, he has experienced it all. His journey began when
Colin was on holiday in Gran Canaria and saw three scuba divers walking into the sea with their
suits on and he thought to himself “what an amazing job that would be working in the sunshine
every day.” So being the incentive person that he is, on returning home to his office job, he
began researching the process of becoming a scuba instructor.
Colin proceeded straight away by passing his Open and Advanced Open Water Courses this
followed by my Drysuit course. I kept diving twice a week in Scotland and in Spain until he had
enough experience and dives to sit his Divemaster course.
Colin wanted to be a good Divemaster with good experience so he worked in a Spanish dive
centre for eight weeks while doing his course and gaining valuable experience. On returning
home Colin was approached by a Scottish dive school where he worked for around a year or
more before for filling his dream to live in Spain. Colin passed his Instructor exam and set up
home in Spain where he had a fantastic time working in a busy dive centre for around nine
months. Due to a change in his circumstances Colin returned to Scotland to establish Scuba Ts
Diving in the Stirlingshire area.
Over the past three years Colin has brought the Excellent customer services & safety skills he
learned from his time in Spain to Scotland and hopefully his customers get the benefit from this.
Colin has a great team by his side who are all active divers and love nothing more than to pass
on skills to Scuba T students.
