Start your dream and learn to dive! The Open Water Diver Referral allows to do the theory and pool dives with us and then complete your course – open water dives – whilst on holiday somewhere a little warmer!
To join the course you need to be at least 10 years old and be medically fit to dive. You don’t need to be an olympic swimmer, just having basic swimming skills is enough. You will need to complete a 200 metre swim during the course but don’t worry, this is no a race as there is no time limit 🙂
The course consists of three different sections:
We teach PADI and SDI courses, both certifications are equally valid and recognised worldwide. Get in touch if you have any questions.
At MK Scuba Diving we like to keep the group as small as possible to ensure that our instructors have plenty of time to look after you without rushing. The maximum students per group is six for the basic pack, four with the standard and two for the premium. We can organise 1-2-1 too, get in touch for more information.
We use different pools for the confined water dives:
For the open water dives we use mainly Stoney Cove – Sapcote Rd, Stoney Stanton, Leicester LE9 4DW. This is formal quarry which has great facilities and is ideal for dive training. They have a shop, gas filling station, changing rooms with showers and a pub where we usually go to debrief and fill out our log books!
