PADI Night Diver Course

Who should take this course?

The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. Although you’ve been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light. The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. If you’ve wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 12 years old, can enroll in the Night Diver specialty course.

What will you learn?

Scuba diving at night teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam, on controlling your buoyancy by feel, on staying with your buddy and on paying attention to details you may overlook during the day. During three night dives, you’ll practice:

  • Light handling and communication techniques.
  • Entering, exiting and navigating in the dark.
  • Identifying how plants and animals differ or change behavior at night.

The first dive of this course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your advanced open water certification – ask us for more info

Discover Scuba Diving

PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience Bolton

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater ?  Well now you can find out for just £30.00

If you want to experience what it is like to breath underwater and  aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try it to see if you like it.
While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

The Fun Part

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to -after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:

Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it

·         Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there

·         Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step

 

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask , snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply. You will also wear a scuba wetsuit and may need a weight system

The Learning Materials You Need

·         Just your willingness and undivided attention

Prerequisites

·         To take Discover Scuba Diving, you must be at least 10 years old
