PADI Skin Diver courses are run on demand, so please get in touch if you're interested in taking this course!
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!
- Small groups - no more than 4 snorkellers to 1 Instructor so you get more Instructor time for the best learning environment and more time exploring!
- No hidden costs - every piece of equipment you need to use is included in your course price, so no surprises!
- Top quality gear - Brand new Mares snorkelling equipment for you to use throughout your experience for your comfort and safety!
With your PADI Instructor or Divemaster, you'll have a chat about what you're likely to see, go through a thorough safety briefing and they'll demonstrate how the equipment all works and then brief you on the skills required during the course. Together you'll then enter the water and see what can be found!
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!
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not, you'll either be buddied up with another participant for your time in the water!
Let's go exploring!
Why explore with us?
We really believe that the Skin Diver course is best enjoyed in small groups, with maximum input from your guide. 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, then no problems! Just get in touch to let us know your requirements, and we'll either arrange for additional Instructors or we can take turns, with 1 group in the water before we swap over.
We work with the amazing guys at Mares to supply you with high quality snorkelling equipment, and thats 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!
Simply book online, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with some specific info.
You'll need to give us a little info about your sizes for the equipment, complete the appropriate medical and liability release forms, and let us know if you have any specific requirements (if you're super nervous, then just let us know so we can give you some extra advice).

Please note that all snorkellers must be aged 8 or above (those under 12 must be accompanied by an adult), and for anyone under 18 we need signed, in person, parental or guardian consent.
