PADI Advanced Open Water & Specialisms Weekend

September 20 @ 6:00 pm - September 22 @ 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 and we will also be running  specialisms – as long as you already have your Open Water then you can sign up for any of the courses on offer. You tell us which specialism you want and we’ll see what we can do!


Enriched Air (Nitrox)  (1 day)                                     Dry Suit Diver (1 day)

Diver Propulsion Vehicle (1 day)                                Digital Photographer (1 day)

Wreck Diver (2 day)                                                      Search & Recovery (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.

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 £350.

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)
