PADI Open Water, learning to dive.

“The beginning of my love for diving”

If you have every fancied trying scuba diving and you are over 10 years old (no max age limit) and are a reasonable swimmer then you can do your PADI Open Water Course. This course fully covers all aspects of learning to dive in 5 easy to follow modules, both in and out of the water over about 4 days. What better way to learn to dive, other than in warm water, surrounded by colourful fishes and corals? Why not do the study portion of the course at home? Via the PADI e-learning system.


Advanced Open Water continue the fun with PADI.

“The diving itself was excellent; spectacular marine life and great visibility and warm water”

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is the next step after Open Water and gets you familiar with different kinds of diving whilst still under the care of your Instructor. The Advanced course consists of five dives: Night, Deep, Navigation, Drift & Peak Performance Buoyancy with knowledge reviews to match. The course normally takes two days. Three dives from this course will make you a PADI Adventure Diver.


PADI Rescue Course

PADI EFR and Rescue: The PADI Rescue Course is one of the most rewarding diving courses available. If you are a confident Advanced level diver, and would like to take your diving to a new level, then this is for you. It takes two or three days during which time you will learn to recognise early panic, help manage an incident and rescue divers from both underwater and on the surface, culminating in a full rescue scenario. You will learn to help others, but also to take care of yourself whilst diving. The PADI EFR part of the course will teach you basic first aid and CPR. The water portion challenges you to react in the right way and to always “Stop, Think, Act”.


PADI Specialties for your interests.

Maybe you have a love of underwater photography or really enjoyed the night dive on your Advanced course? If so the PADI Specialities are a great way to advance your knowledge by taking each subject and devoting between two and four dives to it, with briefings from your PADI Instructor. Deepen your knowledge with some of the specialties offered here at Dive Urge including: Peak Performance Buoyancy, Digital Photography, Night, Deep, Multilevel, Drift, Nitrox and Naturalist.

Study on-line with PADI E-learning

“For goodness sakes do the e-learning ahead of time as it will save you from lots of studying and video work on your trip. There is too much other interesting stuff to do to be stuck with that!”

Complete all your course work in the comfort of your own home (or work) at a time that suits you. For busy people and kids too, this means that you do not have ‘homework’ on holiday. We have PADI instructors available on-line to help you if and when you need support. This scheme also means you have a permanent updated version of the course on- line, which negates the need for a manual, saving about £35.

E-learning options are available from P.A.D.I. for a number of courses such as; Open Water, Advanced, Rescue, Nitrox etc. For more information just follow the link.

  • We also offer the PADI Scuba Diver course, which is half of the Open Water Course.
  • You can choose to do the ‘confined’ water portions of the course in UK, (perhaps at a local dive club) and then complete the course with us; this is called a PADI Open Water Referral.
  • You can also just try a dive, with a PADI Discover Scuba Course, which will give you one dive with an instructor, all you do is kick your fins and we’ll do the rest.
