PADI Scuba Advanced Open Water / Specialism Weekend

22 September 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 24 September 2017 @ 5:00 pm

OK so you’ve got your PADI Open Water Scuba Diver – where to next? Well, there are plenty of specialisms available in Gloucestershire Scouting from the Octopus Scuba Explorer Unit in conjunction with our usual dive school JCScuba. This weekend we will be running  the PADI Advanced Open Water course, as usual, but we will also be running some specialisms. Options requested for this weekend so far are:

Enriched Air (Nitrox)  (1 day)

Dry Suit Diver (1 day)

Diver Propulsion Vehicle (1 day)

Wreck Diver (2 day)


Price will vary depending on the courses chosen – some are one day so you can mix and match to get two qualifications, and some require the full weekend to obtain. For some courses there are also pre-requisites before you can be accepted on the course. If there is a particular course you would like to do which isn’t listed here, send in the form (link below) anyway and we’ll see if we can put it on for you.

As usual with our scuba weekends the price includes all travel, accommodation, food, equipment hire, instruction and PADI registration. The maximum price for the whole weekend will be £320.

If you only want to do a one-day specialism, that’s fine. On the other day you can do two of our Experience Dives – don’t forget every dive logged counts towards the minimum number required for your Master Scuba Diver qualification.

For further information (and customised price for the course combination), without obligation, please contact Derek to discuss which courses you are thinking about (01452 614633)
