PADI Open Water Diver
A PADI Open Water Certificate is your invitation to the most exhilarating spectacles Mother Nature has to offer
Whether you are interested in the explosive kaleidoscope of colours within a beautiful coral reef or the rusting metal of a wrecked military cruiser, the PADI Open Water Diver Course is the world’s favourite way to get there.
Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be weightless? Do you want to find out what your mates have been banging on about all this time?
Our Professional and friendly Instructors and Divemasters will make sure that your journey to becoming a qualified diver is the fun and stress free adventure that it should be.
You will start by taking your crew pack home with you to carry out the Home Study part of the knowledge development, you will learn about many different aspects of diving theory, equipment, safety, skills, and what to expect during your course.
You will then come to us armed with most of the background knowledge you need to complete the rest of your course.
We run monthly courses, each course taking place over 2 consecutive weekends. The first weekend is spent with us at our dive centre in Lancing, we split each day to be a mix of classroom and pool training.
The second weekend is when you will be completing your qualifying Open Water dives at a suitable open water dive site.
Because we have our own pool on site we have the capability to also run courses at other times, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss this option with us.

If you prefer the idea of learning to dive on holiday, but don’t fancy spending half of your holiday in a classroom, we have the answer, you could do the Open Water Diver Referral Course. You do your home study here, the classroom and pool work with us, then finish your qualifying dives at a different PADI centre whilst on your holiday.
