OPEN WATER QUALIFYING DIVES The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver Qualifying Dives with DIVE WIMBLEDON

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular entry level dive course in the world and is valid everywhere.

There are several options when you learn to scuba dive with the PADI Open Water Diver course. The first option is to complete the theory and pool skills for the course here in the UK and then the 4 qualifying dives abroad on your own holiday. If this is the course you are looking for please have a look at our PADI Open Water Referral course information.

The second option is to complete the full PADI Open Water Diver course here in the UK or on a holiday with Dive Wimbledon. 

The third option, which is covered on this page, is for those who have completed the PADI Open Water Referral course including all the theory and pool skills  and are looking to complete the 4 qualifying dives. These can be completed here in the UK with Dive Wimbledon on one of our overseas holidays.
