Completed the first part of your recreational diving course with another diving school? You can still finish it with us...
It’s no wonder the PADI Referral is one of the most popular ways to get your PADI certificate. You can complete the first part of this recreational diving course with one diving centre, and finish off their certification with another. Even better, you can spread it out in stages, so it fits in with your lifestyle. So, for example, you can start the course at a PADI dive centre in the UK, ticking off the pool dives and the academic side of things. You can find the nearest one in the Yellow Pages or just Google PADI dive centre. Once this part of the course is done, your instructor will validate it for one year. That gives you great flexibility to come and complete your final Open Water dives with us in the spectacular Red Sea.
There’s no better place to complete your PADI Referral than the calm, colourful Red Sea. The practical part of the course with us only takes two days. You’ll spend your first day completing two dives from the shore at one of our beautiful house reefs. It’s designed to build your confidence, and eases you in gently, making the transition from the pool to open water a piece of cake. And coming face to face with the Red Sea’s incredible coral and bright fish for the first time is something you won’t forget.
On day two of your PADI Referral with us, we’ll take you out on one of our purpose-built dive boats to do your two qualifying dives. We’ll head to one of our superb local dive sites, like the Gardens, Temple or Ras Katy where you’ll see no-end of sea life including bannerfish, pufferfish and clown fish. Once you’ve completed the course, you’ll be awarded your PADI Open Water Diver certificate which means you can book guided dives with us and explore sites like Ras Mohammed and Tiran. Or, if you’re keen to develop your diving skills, you can sign up for our two-day PADI Advanced course.
