There are three entry level courses,
the most popular being the
Open Water Course, a modular programme of
classroom, pool and open water sessions which will train
you to dive safely and become comfortable in the
underwater world. This course takes four or five days and
includes four open water dives to put into practice the
skills you gained in the pool. Includes free dives subject
Water Referral is the same as the above without the
dives -which can be carried out at any PADI centre
worldwide. Ideal for the
person who is determined to be a warm water diver and
only dive on holiday.
This of course saves the waste of valuable holiday time
in the classroom.
Price if run for two from £190 each.
"Scuba Diver" an entry level course that
qualifies you as a diver but unlike the open water course you are not qualified to dive with
another diver of equal level but only with a Divemaster or higher. All of this course
is included in the open water and can be upgraded to open water at a later date
without taking the full course. Scuba diver is roughly
half the open water course lasting two to three days.
Price from £190. Upgrade from scuba diver to open water £190
Remember no large
you get the attention you deserve.

entry level courses include use of all equipment, pool
time, air used during pool training, manual and tables (recreational
dive planner) and as much coffee as you can drink during
the theory sessions. Additional costs:
travel, food and normal diving expenses during all open
