Open Water Diver

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular recreational scuba qualification!

It teaches the foundations of diving for beginners, so that you can qualify to dive with a buddy, to a maximum depth of 18 meters, independent of supervision, anywhere that has conditions similar to, or better than, those you learned in – so diving in the UK is a good place to start.

The course runs over a monthly rotation, and involves home study, pool work, and then open water dives to complete your certification.

Alternatively, if you want to learn to dive abroad, but the thought of spending your holiday time doing classroom and pool sessions doesn’t appeal, you can do an Open Water Referral. You complete your theory and pool training here and then finish off your course abroad, making the most of your time in the water, creating lots of fun memories.
