Open Water Diver Referral

If you are tempted by the PADI Open Water course but would rather learn in the warm waters of a tropical paradise, then the PADI Open Water Referral course is for you. Rather than waste precious holiday time, the Knowledge Development and confined water training can be completed before you depart. This means that you can do your Open Water qualifying dives in the location of your choice.

The course includes home study (online study is available direct from PADI) classroom sessions and minimum of 10 hour's pool training to build confidence. It can be taken over 6 to 8 weeks, one evening per week, or as a fast-track course over one weekend.

PADI certifications are recognized worldwide so you're sure to find a dive centre that will be happy to help you complete your Open Water Diver course.
