PADI Courses At Go Dive


Important - PADI Scuba diver training courses are performance based NOT time based. Go Dive understand that everybody learns at a different pace. Class sizes are kept small for personal attention normally two to four Students per Instructor or dive team member.

In the unlikely event that the Instructor decides you would benefit from additional training to complete a course, you will not be charged any extra.


Go Dive instructors are among the highest qualified and most experienced instructors in the area. Our Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Divemasters are known for their enthusiasm and dedication to the sport of diving and are committed to ensuring you receive the best training possible. The relationship between you and your instructor is very important so please ensure you discuss your requirements with your instructor & Go Dive prior to starting a course.

The price you see is the price you pay.

Confined Water Training.

This is completed at Queens leisure centre Pool, Derby DE1 3PA between 8:30-9.30pm Thursday evenings. The pool has shallow and deep ends and is large enough for you to practice properly before your open water dives.

For safety your pool training is conducted water depths of 1.2 to 2.1metres, this makes the transition to your open water dive site easy, as your first two dives will be no deeper than about 6 metres.

Open Water Training.

For your convenience the Open Water training is usually completed at the National Diving Centre at Stoney Cove in Leicestershire, generally at weekends. This site is a disused quarry that is now devoted to scuba diving. (see pictures of Stoney Cove here) Sometimes training can also be carried out, by special arrangement, on overseas trips to popular dive destinations such as the Red Sea.


Transport to training locations is not included in course prices. However, if you have difficulty with transport, car sharing can normally be arranged.
