PADI Open Water Diver - Referral

The Flexible approach to diver training

(Just got even more flexible with the introduction of PADI eLearning !!)

Many people today have experienced a try dive overseas and would like to learn to dive properly in the UK but are put off by our supposedly cold water and poor visibility. (Actually this is not necessarily true !!)

Also at this time of year it is the ideal way to start your course so that you don't spend valuable holiday time in the classroom

If this applies to you then this is the course for you. With the Open Water Diver referral, one of our instructors will guide you through the knowledge reviews and administer the quizzes and tests, after which we take you to the pool where you complete the water skills over 5 pool dives. We then issue an Open Water referral card which you simply arrange to take to a PADI Dive Centre anywhere in the world. (Please note that until you complete the open water dives you are not a qualified diver)

You then complete the final four qualifying open water dives in a resort of your choice to receive your Open Water Diver certification. We can even help you to find a Dive Centre to complete your course with. How flexible is that! (please note the costs for the various centres around the world vary and we do not have access to these costs).

We even arrange regular dive trips to Tenerife in the Canary
Islands to complete Open Water Diver and other courses. Alternatively you can time your pool training to coincide with one of our regular trips to the Red Sea. Imagine completing your course on some of the finest dive sites in the world ! Click here or on the Dive Trips link for more information about our trips.

PADI eLearning
For even more flexibility, and as an alternative to the classroom session, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer the new PADI eLearning option. This approach allows you to complete all the necessary preparation and theory work in the comfort of your own home, office or anywhere where you can get an internet connection. This approach is not suitable for everyone, as most people prefer the assistance of an instructor in a face to face environment. If you would like more information on this approach please follow the link below

Class Sizes
It is also very important to stress at this point that not only are our groups kept small, usually no more than 4 in a group, but that we use half of a very large 33m long pool. This is very important to know, as learning to dive involves much more than simply kneeling on the bottom of a small pool in a large group and doing a few exercises. It is vital that you have time and room to swim around and practice the most important skill in diving - good buoyancy control. You can't do that in a small or crowded pool
