UK Scuba Diving


We all need something to look forward to next year so why not get a head start on making 2021 a year you won’t forget and start learning to scuba dive from home today?

If you’re looking for an exciting new year’s resolution and scuba is on your list, there’s never been a better time for you or your family to get started and learn new skills, especially as we’re still spending more time at home.

Adventure doesn’t have to wait. Whether you’re considering diving into a new sport or you want to further your existing experience, PADI®, the world’s largest diver training organisation has a range of online courses to get you started now.

Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge and practical dive skills. PADI has a range of eLearning courses so you can start your diving adventures at home with the knowledge development portion of a course and work at your own pace.

This convenient, interactive study option allows you to learn anytime and anywhere and uses videos, audio, graphics, reading and short quizzes to help you learn and gauge your progress.

You have an entire year to complete the online portion and can connect at any time with a PADI Dive Centre to complete your in-water training. You’ll be ready to get in the water, develop your dive skills and complete your certification with your PADI Instructor.

If you are looking for an exciting gift idea for the active or eco-aware person in your life, why not give the gift of adventure and help save the oceans at the same time. A PADI eLearning gift certificate would make the perfect Christmas present and 10% of your purchase will go towards supporting the Project AWARE Dive Against Debris® programme which empowers scuba divers to remove debris from the ocean.
