Learn to SCUBA Dive with the aim to qualify on holiday!

Padi Open Water Referral is one of our specialities. If you don’t fancy completing the PADI Open Water here in the UK, possibly due to your time schedule and planned holiday, then, why not complete everything but the open water dives here with us in the UK. Then, all you have to do is complete the four open water dives at a PADI centre of your choice whilst on holiday. The full course must be completed with in 12 months of the initial registration here in the UK.fishred

Course only £260.00 including VAT and a Kit Orientation session here at the shop, free kit hire, tanks, air and pool entry required to complete all skills and drills (ALSO INCLUDES FULL TRAINING PACK WITH TABLES AND MANUAL AND OFFICIAL PADI LOG BOOK) and…the all important Referral Form completed by us so that you can hand this to your PADI Dive Centre of your own choosing abroad when you go to complete the 4 remaining Open Water Dives. Open Water dives must be completed within 12 months of your initial start date. You will need to pay the dive centre of your choosing abroad to complete the four open water dives and the certification fee. You will need to make these arrangements yourself with a dive centre abroad of your choosing.

So, to recap….The Open Water Referral course is designed for clients who plan to holiday abroad and wish to complete their Open Water Dives in the warm blue holiday sea. The Referral Course starts here at Scubaco and covers all the pool session skills and all the theory elements of the PADI Open Water Course. Upon completion you will then be referred with all the appropriate documentation to take with you to your chosen holiday destination to complete the remaining sea dives.
