Give the gift of adventure this Christmas with this great PADI Open Water gift card.
If you know someone who has always wanted to take scuba diving lessons and experience the adventure of the underwater world, we can help you with the perfect gift.
You can now buy a gift card for the PADI Open Water Diver part one course allowing your loved one to complete all of their theory and pool training with Dive Academy, but allowing them the choice of finishing their open water dives in warmer water on holiday.
Gift cards come with their own greetings card for presentation to the lucky recipient.
The course is in two parts:
Using the PADI Open Water Touch system, students are able to learn academics at thier own pace using a computer connected to the internet, or download it to an Apple or Android tablet for offline completion. Students work through five sections introducing them to diving equipment, skills, problem management and the natural world. Multiple choice assessments help to track progress through the course.
2. Pool Training
Pool training at Dive Academy begins with a quick review of academics and then we complete a practical session to understand how to assemble, put on, and disassemble a scuba unit. We then complete five pool dives including skin diving skills. Students do need to be able to swim - on the first evening there is a 200m swim (no time limit, but without stopping) and a 10 minute float or tread water.
Following completion of the Open Water Part 1 course with Dive Academy students cna choose to complete their Open Water Diver course with any PADI centre worldwide - or upgrade to the full Open Water course with Dive Academy.
Are there any restrictions?
Participants should be aged 12+ and in reasonable physical health. There is a medical questionnaire all participants will be required to complete prior to joining an Open Water Diver class. Please review the questionnaire and ensure that participants do not have any "YES" answers. YES answers do not necessarily mean that an individual would be prevented from diving - simply that a doctor's sign-off is required.
Regrettably Dive Academy is unable to offer refunds for cancellation due to a "yes" answer when completing a medical form at the start of the course - please review the questions prior to purchasing a gift card.
