Dive right in - learn to scuba dive and get your PADI

You can complete your Open Water diver certification with no previous experience of scuba diving. You'll complete eLearning online and then five pool lessons with an instructor.  Four qualifying dives and you're a PADI Open Water Diver.

Various course options are offered below for pool training.  Typically there are one or two open water opportunities per month. If you don't see an option below that suits you then please contact the team on 01935 353525 or by email to info@dive.academy and we will try to assist.

Essential info:

eLearning is included within your full Open Water Diver package. You should allow sufficient time to complete this before you arrive for your pool training.

All equipment is supplied, however we recommend purchase of your own snorkelling equipment (mask, snorkel, boots and fins) as this will improve your comfort as you learn to dive.

If you don't already have these items, please don't rush out and buy them as it's important to get a correct fit and suitable equipment.

Your instructor can help you to select items when you come in for pool training, and Dive Academy have discounted packages at competitive prices available for students.
