PADI Scuba Diving Courses in Oxfordshire
Our diving courses are situated in Banbury, Oxfordshire which is just a short drive from Oxford, Northampton and Milton Keynes
Thanks to its Universities and Colleges, Oxfordshire is one of the famous counties in the world and we are pleased to announce that we now teach our PADI scuba diving courses at Bloxham School, one of Oxfordshire’s leading public schools.
The online learning part of your scuba diving course can be completed at a time and location to suit you. For details please read about the e-learning system on our Open Water Courses page.
Swimming Pool Diving Session
Our Oxford and Banbury based PADI scuba diving courses take place in Bloxham School’s fantastic 25m heated indoor swimming pool. We meet on a Sunday at 9.30am and aim to finish around 1.30pm. We do not have an actual dive shop here but you can order equipment in advance and we can bring it along to your course.
The pool is constantly monitored to maintain a comfortable 29 degrees celsius plus we will give you a wetsuit to keep you nice and toasty.
Completing your PADI Scuba Diving Course
If you are learning to dive in Oxford and have opted to do the Full Open Water course we will meet you at a lake in the picturesque village of Wraysbury close to Thorpe Park, M25, M3 and M4 motorways where you will complete your four open water dives. This fresh water lake has plenty of sunken attractions such as boats, camper vans, buses 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.
