To be eligible to sign on to one of our PADI Open Water courses, you need to be aged 12 or over and be in good medical fitness. Please make sure that you have read the full list of questions on the PADI Medical Statement and if any of the listed conditions apply, you will need to print off and take this form to your family doctor in order that you can be signed off as fit to dive before you commence your PADI Open Water course. You don’t have to be a great swimmer to learn to dive but you do need to be able to swim and be fairly happy in the water.
During your training, we are always happy to give students additional support beyond the normal course schedule where you may be struggling with either academic or practical skills however we may have to charge an extra fee when this additional time extends beyond 2 to 3 hours - See our Terms and Conditions for more details.
Under some circumstances, we may not be able to complete your open water training dives within Dublin Bay, this may be due to advers weather or logistical difficulties. Should we have to travel to other locations such as Lough Owel in Mullingar or Connemara in Co Galway, the costs of travel and any additional local fees are not covered by the main course fee.
