PADI Skin Diver courses can also be run on demand, so please get in touch if you're interested in taking this specialty and your preferred date isn't shown!
The PADI Skin Diver is the official certification level course in snorkelling from PADI.
By taking part in this course, you'll learn loads of snorkelling specific skills such as duck diving, blast clearing and how to select proper weighting and gain an official PADI certification!
Why choose to learn with us?
Small Groups - We really believe that the Skin Diver Course is best enjoyed in small groups, with maximum input from your Instructor. That's why, with us, you'll never have more than 4 snorkellers in the water with any 1 Instructor. If you're a bigger group, no problem, just get in touch to let us know your requirements.
Top Quality Gear - We work with the amazing guys at Mares to supply you with high quality snorkelling equipment for you to use, and that's all included in the price. We'll supply your wetsuit, mask, snorkel and fins - all you have to bring are your togs, a towel and a sense of adventure!
No Hidden Costs - Every piece of equipment you need to use is included in the price, so no surprises!
About The Course
Simply book online or give us a call, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with an information pack shortly after.
Please let us know if you have any specific requirements and we'll always do our best to accomodate (for example, if you're super nervous just let us know so we can give you some extra advice).
When you arrive in store, you'll have a chat with your PADI Instructor or Divemaster about your abilities while you complete the relevant paperwork. We'll then allocate your equipment before we travel to the chosen location for our adventure!
Once at the snorkelling site your guide will brief you about what you're likely to see and go through a thorough safety briefing, and they'll demonstrate how the equipment works. Together you'll then enter the water and see what can be found and then brief you on the skills required during the course!
If you have friends that are booked on too then awesome! If not, you'll be buddied up with another participant for your time in the water!
Be warned though - this is a super addictive activity! Just ask your diver pals how many started their love of the water snorkelling...
The Skin Diver course takes about a half day from start to finish. Upon completion you'll be awarded with your very own Skin Diver certificate, and you'll receive a PADI certification card in the post!
