Like the full open water course, we take you step by step through exercises to increase your confidence and enhance your diving experience. In conjunction with the practical work, we reinforce the all
aspects of safety and enjoyment through instructor demonstrations and theory presentation. We take you though the final steps until you are ready to qualify in open water, and sign all documentation that you will
need to show at your holiday destination so that you may complete your referral course abroad. This is particularly suited to younger
students who may not be allowed entry to UK dive sites.
Why PADI Open Water Referral?
As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognised and
respected rating in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy
independent of a professional. If you already tried a PADI Discover
Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, check with
your instructor to see how credit from these courses may apply to the
open water program.

What do I need to start?
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable
in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. If you are
between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI
Junior Open Water Diver program available.
What will I do?
Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving,
including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by
completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by
making four open water (ocean or lake) dives with us.
How long will it take?
PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate
mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is
comfortable for you. Our courses last between 5 and 6 weeks. There are 5
pool sessions, two academic / theory sessions, followed by 4 open water
