PADI Open Water Course

The Course

The PADI Open Water course is the most popular entry course into diving. It consists of three parts: theory, confined dives and open water dives.  You will start with the skills in confined water, mastering them first before applying them in the open water. We offer all divers additional coaching sessions, and there is the option to complete your dry suit training alongside your Open Water course.

Some choose to complete the theory and confined here in the UK and complete their training overseas; this is known as the Referral option. Where you choose to complete all three sections in the UK we will plan your course to meet your schedule and goals, with a degree of flexibility, in small groups, to ensure you get the most out of your course. Get in touch for availability.
