All the details:
This is an excellent option for anyone who wants to learn to dive on holiday, from age 10 and upwards. If you'd like to complete your PADI Open Water Diver on holiday, you can complete your eLearning and pool training before you go and spend more of your holiday actually diving (or sitting around the pool)! What happens next? When you book your PADI Open Water Diver referral, one of the Dive Academy team will contact you to arrange access to PADI's amazing eLearning package. You'll read about diving, watch videos and answer quizzes to learn all the theory you need to know. Typically this takes approximately 7-8 hours over five chapters. You don't need to do this all at once, but you do need to complete your eLearning prior to your pool date(s). You'll then join your instructor to complete five pool dives with us at Dive Academy in our heated pool in Yeovil. This will be on the dates you've chosen in your booking. Finally you'll complete four qualifying Open Water Dives on holiday with any PADI dive centre anywhere in the world. We'll complete all the paperwork required for you to take with you, we're even happy if you want to send this on in advance so the dive centre can contact us if they have any queries to make things go smoothly when you arrive. Additional charges will be payable to the local dive centre so you should confirm these with them directly when booking your dives. To complete the PADI Open Water Diver course you'll need to be comfortable in the water and be able to swim 200 metres without stopping (no time limit) and tread water or float for 10 minutes. While all equipment rental for your pool training is included within your course fee, we recommend that you purchase your own mask, snorkel, boots and fins. These will improve your comfort underwater and will be fabulous items for both diving and snorkelling while you are on holiday. However there is no need to rush out and purchase these in advance, a full range is available within our dive centre and your instructor will be able to help you select correctly fitting equipment. We also offer a discount on snorkelling packages.
