Holborn Scuba learn to dive

Ocean Diver, BSAC’s entry-level qualification, is equivalent to PADI’s Advanced Open Water Diver and costs just £445.00**. Over eight Wednesday evenings and five open water dives, you will learn buoyancy control, problem-solving and rescue skills. There are also seven lectures to give you the knowledge to dive safely. Contact us to book your place.

Dive into a whole new world
The Ocean Diver course will see you complete your five qualifying open water dives over one or two weekends at a local inland dive site. The course offers great value for money and is ideal for people on a tight budget or with time constraints.

Once you have completed the course you will be the proud holder of an internationally-recognised diving qualification from the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) that will allow you to dive anywhere in the world to a maximum depth of 20m.

Holborn’s Ocean Diver course features an all-inclusive fee**, although there are some external costs over which Holborn has no control which are not covered. These include transport to and from the dive sites, entry to inland training centres, air fills at the inland training centres and food and drink when you are there.

Not only is the Ocean Diver course great value for money, but to make it easier, we can even take course payments in instalments. To discuss this option, please contact us.

If you are unable to make one of our scheduled courses we are also able to offer ad hoc courses on demand, although this can depend upon the weather and instructor availability.
