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 Centrewould be happy to provide you with a quote so you can complete your dives somewhere of your choosing.

South East London and Kent - Sunday mornings
Brighton & Hove - Sunday mornings

Here is a more detailed explanation of the course options available to you:

We offer the most fun, convenient and comprehensive diving courses in London and the South East. Here's why:

Pass Guarantee

We offer a PASS GUARANTEE which means that if you do not complete all of the skills or requirements to complete the Open Water Diver course then you can come back as many times as you like until you do pass (subject to availability).

Small Group Sizes

Having other people learning to dive at the same time makes your course more fun, plus it can help put your mind at ease when others are asking questions too. However, we believe that class sizes should be relatively small so we like to keep them to a maximum of 6 students to 1 instructor, more often than not it is less than this!

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be 10 years or older and be in reasonable health but you certainly don't need to be an Olympic athlete. You will need to be able to swim 200m (any stroke) and float/tread water for 10 minutes.

The Scuba Gear You'll Use

During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use full scuba diving gear including a dive computer and standard accessories. If diving in winter then you also use a dry suit to keep you warm and toasty. We use the latest gear from Aqua Lung, one of the worlds top diving manufacturers. All equipment is provided so all you need is your swimwear and a towel but we do recommend that you have your own diving mask & snorkel. If you are interested in purchasing your own equipment then you might find this article useful.

FOR MORE DETAILS AND ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS PLEASE VISIT OUR BLOG PAGE ON DIVING LESSONS IN LONDON.

As part of your course you will need to be able to swim 200m and float/tread water for 10 minutes. If you would liketo learn to swim then we recommend 2 different companies:
