Open Water TheoryIf you are planning to complete the PADI open water course then the theory is completed online at a time and location to suit you. For details please read about PADI’s e-learning system on our Open Water Courses page.
If you are thinking of doing a Discover Scuba experience (trial dive) then you will be fully briefed at the pool.
The 25m long heated pool is located in the grounds of the prestigeous St. Johns Beaumont school. The school was designed by John Francis Bentley, one of the most famous architects of his day and the architect of Westminster Cathedral in London. This quiet pool is located a short drive away from Reading, Slough, Staines, Egham, Windsor, Reading and Ascot.
Pool sessions take place on a Saturday afternoon from 1.15-5pm.
Completing your PADI Open Water Diving Course
If you have opted to do the Full Open Water course we will meet you at a lake in the picturesque village of Wraysbury located close to Thorpe Park, the M25, M3 and M4 motorways. Over the weekend you will complete your four open water dives. This fresh water lake has plenty of sunken attractions such as boats, camper van, bus and even a London cab. With several training platforms available they’re a great place to practice your diving skills. We always say “if you can dive in the UK then you can dive anywhere”!
If you are doing the Open Water Referral then we will complete the PADI Referral Form contained within your log book after the pool session. You can then simply present this to any PADI dive centre around the world.
We also run regular group trips abroad for students who wish to complete their course with the same instructor and meet fun and like-minded people. Alternatively our Travel Centre would be happy to provide you with a quote so you can complete your dives somewhere of your choosing.
