OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver course with DIVE WIMBLEDON

If you have always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course and has introduced millions of people to the underwater world.

When you enrol to learn to scuba dive there are two options available. The first option is to complete the theory and pool sessions for the course here in London and the 4 qualifying dives abroad on your own holiday. If this is the course you are looking for please visit our PADI Open Water Referral page.

The other option is to complete the full PADI Open Water Diver course here in London or on a holiday with Dive Wimbledon.
