All course prices include manuals, tuition and PADI registration so there are no nasty surprises. Candidates are required to follow a set program with other divers and may be liable to additional charges if they fail to complete a part of the agreed schedule.

Course Prices

Prices include everything you need to complete the course, there are no hidden surprises so when you pay the price shown and complete the performance requirements you get your certification card.

If you book and pay for a One to One course you will have the full attention of your instructor for its duration and the itinerary can be adjusted to suit you.

From time to time we arrange a

weekend at a remote location

where you can complete your course quickly and efficiently, this does cost a little extra, accommodation and site fees, but really adds to the fun.

Most of our open water training dives take place at Cushendall, Portmuck or Portaferry, although we also use many sites around Northern Ireland.

Diveskool sell a range of equipment to order and, whether buying from other suppliers or ourselves, our instructors will be happy to provide free advice when it comes to making those all important decisions. All the equipment you need can be purchased locally in Northern Ireland.
