A PADI Open Water Diver Course Referral allows you to undertake the majority of your scuba training at home before completing your certification dives anywhere in the world!


A PADI referral also allows you to both support your local dive shop and avoid having to study during your holiday. You’ll complete all of the e-learning theory in advance, so while you are on holiday you can focus on the fun part of getting under water and exploring everything to be found beneath the water’s surface!


To put it simply, instead of spending 4-5 days of your holiday studying and practicing scuba skills in a pool, you’ll arrive with the majority of your PADI Open Water Diver Course already complete.


Your Open Water Referral Course will be made up of four parts:-

  • Knowledge Development using PADI eLearning which is done at home at your own pace.
  • One classroom session for a review of the knowledge development.
  • Five confined water modules covering your basic skills and done in our local pool facilities over four sessions.
  • Water Skills Assessment during which you will swim freestyle non-stop for 200m (or with mask, fins and snorkel for 300m) and float in water too deep to stand for 10 minutes.


Course Options:

  • Standard Open Water Referral Course: -This level covers everything required to complete the course. Pool sessions are on a Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm and all sessions must be booked in advance of starting the course.
  • Flexible Open Water Referral Course: - At this level in addition to everything above you also get access to our Saturday afternoon pool at 12 noon and an additional pool session. You can also take advantage of the option to book as you go and your classroom session includes the PADI Aware Speciality.
  • Tailormade Open Water Referral Course: - At this level, your course is tailor made to fit around your requirements and your schedule.
