Reasons to be cheerful……

  • Our courses are taught in one Wraysbury Dive Centre.
  • More in water time than any other dive school…who wants to sit in a classroom all day?
  • All equipment, air fills, learning materials, logbook, certification and entrance to Wraysbury Dive Centre is included in the course price. No hidden extras!
  • Our instructors are full time professionals with over 20 years teaching experience.
  • We use the latest and best equipment.
Once you have completed the course with us you will be a PADI Open Water Diver with the skills and confidence to dive anywhere in the world (PADI is recognised around the globe) to 18 metres with a buddy!

The PADI Open Water course consists of three main phases -

  • Knowledge development to understand the basic principles of scuba diving.
  • Confined water dives to learn basic scuba skills. We use our own custom built facility…no public swimming pools for us!
  • Open Water dives to review your skills and explore the underwater world!
  • And that’s it - you are a PADI Open Water Diver!
You will be taken through these steps by our team of experienced Instructors, at your pace, in a relaxed, fun environment. Our unique location means all your training is done in one place..which means more time in the water for you!

The PADI Open Water course is run over four days normally, the first two weekends of each month.  We can, however, put together a bespoke course to fit your busy life!
