What Will You Learn?
  • How to safely dive to a maximum of 30m
  • Advanced navigation techniques 
  • How to think like a diver
  • The chance to sample a wide range of specialities and help you decide where your diving interests lie
How does it work?
First you'll have some theory work to complete at home, before coming in to our Hamilton store one evening to discuss what you've learned with your instructor and prepare for the practical element of the course.

Working with your instructor you'll select 3 speciality dives in addition to the required Deep and Navigation dives that could include Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Photography, Drift Diving, Wreck Diving, Boat Diving and more! 

Then we head to Open Water! You'll complete 5 dives over 2 days putting all your new knowledge into action.
