Diving is an exhilarating, pleasurable and highly rewarding activity which can only be enjoyed safely if you are trained to the appropriate level. The entry level Scuba Diving certification is the PADI Open Water Diver, which qualifies you to dive to 18 metres for the rest of your life.
The course is split into two sections, firstly you need to complete the referral course, which covers all of the pool and theory work towards the certification, and gets you to a point where you are ready to complete your four Open Water qualifying dives. You have twelve months to complete the dives, and can do them with us in the UK, or at any other PADI Dive Centre worldwide. The dives will take place in either the sea, or one of the many inland dive sites across the world.
If you are unsure if scuba diving is for you or if you would like to experience diving without committing to the full course then why not try our Discover Scuba experience. This is a two hour session, designed to get you swimming around, playing games and having fun with Scuba.
