PADI Open Water Referral Course

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba diving course and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. The PADI Open Water Referral is the first half of the course consisting of some Theory to understand the basic principles of scuba diving and Confined Water Dives where you learn and practice your scuba diving skills in one of our heated pools either in Bedford or Cambridge.
The referral course is made up of the first two parts of the full open water course allowing you then to complete your course with the 4 open water dives with another PADI dive centre while you are on holiday somewhere nice and hot. This way you won't waste any of your valuable holiday stuck in a classroom or taking lessons in a swimming pool and can go straight to scuba diving on the wonderful wrecks and reefs around your Holiday destination.



We offer the very highest level of PADI scuba diver education designed to teach you to scuba dive safely using the most up-to-date teaching practices. During this PADI scuba diver course, you will learn about the scuba equipment you will be using and teh basic safety skills you will need to keep yourself safe underwater. All under the guidance of one of our PADI professionals..


The price we tell you at the start is the price you will pay for the full course. Unlike some other dive centres, you won't need to pay extra for the open water dives or PADI books and fees.
