Ocean Diver & Sports Diver Referral Courses

Both these courses are presented over two days during which your guests will complete the open water training dives under the supervision of an instructor. Guests should bring along with them their BSAC Qualification Record Book showing proof of having completed the first part of the course. 

Sports Diver Course

Students will do one day's diving before starting the Sports Diver course. This is to ensure that the student is comfortable in the schools equipment and comfortable in the water prior to starting this program. The one day diving is included in the Sports Diver course price, however equipment is at an additional charge for this diving day.

One Day Recreational diving is also required prior to specialty courses. 

Scuba Review

Should some time have passed since their last dive, our dive centres recommend all divers adhere to the recommendations made by their training agency regarding the completion of a Scuba/Skills review before diving. Most agencies recommend a Scuba/Skills review if no diving has taken place for 6 months. Evidence of the date of the divers’ last dive should be shown in a log book to avoid problems on check-in; where possible the review should be booked in advance and will take place on the first day’s diving.

Alternatively a Scuba/Skills Review can be completed prior to arrival in resort and signed by an Instructor in the divers’ logbook. In the interests of safety, dive centres reserve the right to provide and charge for a Check Dive, Scuba Review, or Refresher with an Instructor, or restrict diving activities if the Instructor has any doubts about diver safety. Please advise of this when booking to ensure availability. 

Dive Leader

The recommended minimum period to take the Dive Leader course is 2 weeks. We do advise that the student does have all materials and they study prior to their arrival.

Please note that prices, contents and structure of courses may vary slightly in different resorts. To complete your qualification you need to take with you two passport sized photos. You may also have to pay a certification fee of between €25 - €55. Loan of dive equipment and loan of manuals is normally included.
