What Do I need to start the PADI Scuba Diver to Open Water Uplift?

  • Be older than ten years old
  • Be healthy and reasonably fit - Please read the section below Medically Fit to Dive because if you have any YES (on page 2) then you will need a Physician signature prior to commencing on the course

What Will I do?

  2. Complete the remaining 2 out of 4 open water dives.
  3. Complete the online elearning and final quizzes
  4. Complete a 200 metre surface swim

Prior to going to open water we will undertake a drysuit orientation in the pool as ALL of our open water diving is completed in a drysuit suit - this is OUR standard, it is for your comfort, we want you to ENJOY your diving experience and being cold and uncomfortable is not enjoyable!

When ready, then time to complete those two open water dives, generally speaking at Stoney Cove, but at times, other locations are available​

As you are completing your open water dives in a drysuit you can integrate your Drysuit specialty.

PADI Drysuit Specialty - why do the full speciality?  well you are being trained in a drysuit and have completed all of the pre-requisite training and only need 1 extra dive to complete.  This speciality allows you to hire a drysuit it is a bit like a driving licence you can not hire a car with out a valid driving license.  Worth £250


You will already have access to your online elearning as it was part of your original scuba diver certification.  You will need to complete all the final elements and quizzes not completed as part of the PADI Scuba Diver certification

At Dive Rutland we provide you with all of the cores scuba diving equipment (Cylinder, BCD or Wing, Regulators, fins and for open water all previously mentioned equipment plus drysuit and baselayer) you need to continue your diving adventure.  

All you need to provide is your mask, snorkel, wetsuit (items you should have from your Scuba Diver certificatoin) and your own swimming attire for the pool and a few additional items of clothing for the open water part.
