Open Water 20

Have you always wanted to learn to scuba dive? There’s nothing quite like the feeling of weightlessness and gliding effortlessly through the water. The RAID Open Water 20 Diver course teaches the fundamentals of diving. It builds solid foundations right from the start by providing you with the knowledge and skills to make you a safe and aware diver, which will set you up well for your future diving. You can qualify to dive with a buddy, to a maximum depth of 20 meters, independent of supervision, anywhere that has conditions similar to, or better than, those you learned in – and diving in the UK is a great place to start.

The course runs over a monthly rotation, and involves home study, classroom & pool work, and then open water dives to complete your certification.

Alternatively, if you want to learn to dive abroad, but the thought of spending your holiday time doing classroom and pool sessions doesn’t appeal, you can do a Referral Course. You complete your theory and pool training here and then finish off your course with a RAID Centre abroad, making the most of your time in the water and creating lots of fun memories.
