PADI

A scuba diving holiday is a great way to learn to dive in warm water conditions and expert, professional diving instructors taking you through every step with a PADI Course.


Taster Session
If you’re not sure and just want to try diving without committing to a course, why not book a Discover Scuba session. Initial sessions take place in the safe confines of a pool or "pool like conditions" and overseen on a one-to-one basis by a fully qualified instructor. Student go at their own pace and will learn the basics covering use of the equipment, safety signals and first manoeuvres with the reassurance of a personal instructor at your side.

Discover Scuba Diving Course
1 day (in open water)
from £50
This is the ideal way for children to complete the initial stages of an Open Water PADI course but without committing to the full programme. The course covers the same content as the initial part of the Open Water course – theory, safety, kit and first dives in the pool. Groups are small and overseen by the PADI instructor. Minimum age 10 years.

For those who are confident to progress a gentle shore dive may be an option. Should they wish to continue to the full Open Water course this can count towards the Open Water certification. Courses vary by centre depending on conditions and type of diving available.

PADI Open Water Course
5 days 
from £175
The standard PADI Open Water course takes five days to complete and usually all parts are completed in resort. Your Instructor will presume that you have no experience or previous knowledge of diving and will take you through each point step by step explaining the theory and giving practical demonstrations. Minimum age: 12 years.
 

The PADI Open Water course has been designed to teach you to be a safe and competent diver and is divided into three parts, classroom theory work, confined water and four open water dives. Once you have completed the course you will have the skills required to dive safely. Advanced and speciality course are available should you wish to develop your skills. More>
