PADI Open Water Referral Course

The PADI Open Water Referral Course is great way for those who want to dive abroad. It allows you to complete all your theory and pool modules in your own time at home. This option then allows you to complete you open water dives at a PADI dive centre abroad.

The major benefit of this course is to complete your dive certification while still enjoying your holiday.

The Open Water Referral Course is split into two sections: theory and pool modules. The theory sections are based on home study allowing you to learn at your own pace. The modules are supported and reviewed by sessions with an instructor who can explain any areas in more detail. During the five pool modules you will learn the skills to dive safely. The Open Water dives are done at a PADI Dive Centre of your choosing at your destination.

Why choose the diving centre?

Firstly we have some of the best facilities in the country. With our onsite heated pool (29 degrees), classrooms and large car park.  There isn’t anytime wasted going between the shop and local swimming pools. We only used high quality and well maintained diving equipment in the school, with separate equipment for both pool and open water training. We are also the longest running diving centre in the area with over 35 years membership with PADI. Our instructional team are highly experienced and passionate about diving.

We also encourage our students to continue with us after their course with reduced rates for kit hire, warm water diving holidays and an active social scene.

Also with our own pool we can tailor the course to any individual or groups needs from 1-1 tuition or large groups such as schools.

With every Open Water course you also receive a 10% off mask, snorkel, fins, boots and gloves voucher as well as a 5% off everything in store voucher

(these vouchers are valid for one purchase and do not include special offers or packages)

You can book your course below or alternatively you can pay for the course in our online shop under PADI COURSES
