Open Water Referral

The Open water referral is essentially the first part of the Open Water course.  It is perfect for those individuals who do not have the time to complete the full course prior to a holiday but who want to get started.
What does the course consist of?

The referral consists of the theory and skills development sections of the Open Water course.

Knowledge development: Following some home study and instructor guided classroom sessions you will learn the fundamental theory of scuba diving, ready for you to put into practice in the water.

Confined water dives: This is the in water skills development section of the course.  In shallow water, you will learn all the skills required to enable you to venture safely and confidently into your open water dives.

What can I do after this course?
Things to do after you qualify: Open Water Qualifying Dives
Once you have completed your referral, all you need to do to gain your full open water certification is complete the four qualifying dives.  You will get to practice some of your newly acquired underwater skills and get to see the attractions in our lake.
Things to do after you qualify: Buy Dive Kit
You may have already bought your first dive toys but if you have not you may be considering venturing to make that first purchase.  We would always recommend that you purchase your dive equipment from a dive shop rather than shopping online (and its not just because we have a dive shop on site).  Buying in person allows you to try things on so that you get the right fit, get the right advice and kit for the type of diving that you intend to do and benefit from the experience of those that actually go diving.  You may also end up with a better deal than you imagined.
