Our expert scuba diving instructors will guide you along this amazing journey of knowledge and fun. This course can be undertaken with digital on line theory or in class tuition.
What is included?
Available to divers aged 10 years old plus. Price includes all PADI Materials including a divers log book, PADI manual and a DVD. (On line access add £50).
Price includes use of major scuba equipment: BCD, Regulators, air cylinder and weights. We do require all divers to own their own mask and snorkel as a minimum, for diver comfort. If you have fins and wet suit so much the better for your own comfort. You will learn how water takes away your body heat 25 times faster than air! Wet suits can be rented £10 per three hour session.
Two times three hour theory sessions, two times three hour pool sessions undertaking your confined water skills under the direct supervision of our highly skilled professional team. Having achieved this milestone, you now have various options to consider: You can jet off somewhere warm and complete your four open water divers to become a fully qualified PADI open Water Scuba Diver. Or, you can also complete four open water dives on a Divecrew Escorted Holiday, or change your mind and learn all of your PADI Open Water Diving right here in the UK. UK diving we provide dry suits for diver comfort, so you learn another skill too. Use of a dry suit is included in the course price.
What’s the difference between the PADI Referral Open Water Course and the Full course?
There are 3 parts to the PADI Open Water Course which need to be completed in order to become a qualified diver:
- Part 1 – theory
- Part 2 – confined water dives
- Part 3 – four open water training dives
If you enroll in the PADI Full Open Water course you would complete parts 1 to 3 with us and become fully qualified. If you opt for the Referral course then you would complete steps 1 and 2 with Divecrew in the UK and then become qualified once you’ve finished your 4 open water dives on holiday.
