Referral Diver

Cost: £525

The SSI Open Water Referral allows you to split your Open Water Diver training between two centres. This allows you to complete the four open water dives at a SSI Centre of your choice. If you tell us your destination, we will help you find a Centre. The benefit is you do not spend your whole holiday studying and will have more time to dive!

Think of the globally recognised SSI Open Water Referral as the key that opens a door to a world of adventure and fun. Our promise - we work with you as an individual to ensure you have the skills and experience required to be comfortable underwater.  

If you are considering learning to dive, then why not contact us to arrange a free online orientation. This 45-minute session allows you to ask all your questions, meet a member of the training team and find out how we are going to help you become a diver!

When you are ready to begin there are several steps to completing the Open Water Referral Course

  • Home study
  • Academic workshops 
  • Planning workshop
  • Exam
  • 1:1 progression meetings
  • Five confined/pool training sessions

Your Open Water Instructor will work with you at every step to develop the skills and knowledge that you need. We are available for your questions at any time during your course and not just in class. You can call, email or message us on our social media accounts. 

The confined/pool sessions are structured to build the skills and experience that you need to be an Open Water Diver. We have plenty of practice time so you can gain comfort through repetition of the key skills you are learning. You are provided with feedback to help you develop further and your instructor will conduct 1:1 progress meetings throughout the course. 

What your Open Diver Course includes: -

  • Digital Manual
  • Digital Open Water Referral Certification 
  • Instructor time
  • Confined water/Pool time 
  • Equipment hire - you will require your own mask and snorkel. Ask for a free fitting

We want you to get the most from your experience, so our maximum class size is 2:1. If you prefer, we do offer a 1:1 option on all our training courses, just ask for full details.  

Course dates are available on request, we will work to build around your schedule.
