Scuba Divers International - SDI

Open Water Scuba Instructors Course - September 2022

As SDI continue to grow, we welcome the opportunity as part of this organisation, to offer the exciting SDI OWSI course here at Cardiff Scuba. The course focusses on developing your presentation, teaching and assessing skills, by recognising your current achievements and strengths and supporting you to develop more than you thought possible.

We have 3 candidates already enrolled and are happy to take another 2 on this very rewarding journey. We will be hosting the OWSI Course to run from 11th - 16th September. We have also pencilled in an additional day should it be required - 17th - to be followed immediately by the Instructor Evaluation (IEC) day which will be held on Sunday 18th September. This day will be supervised by one of our Instructor Trainers - Toni Norton of Purple Turtle Diving.

We would welcome enquiries from those interested to take the next step in their Professional Diving Development and so for an informal chat about the course, content, costs, etc, please feel free to call Rob on 029 2061 5161 or on my mobile 07917 226034 or pop into the centre where you will always find a warm welcome.

Rising Costs

We have held the cost of our courses over the last 3 years without increases as evidence to our  commitment to offer Scuba Training to as many people as possible.

Unfortunately with the continued rise in costs across all sectors we now have no option but to increase the price of our Dive Courses.

The new prices will take effect for any course booked to start from 1st June. New prices on enquiry.

Unfortunately we have no choice in making these increases.

Wreck Diver

"Thanks  for another great Cardiff Scuba course, this time Wreck Diving. Fab weekend diving with safety always being No.1 priority. Brilliant location at Fort Bovisand.
I felt very safe with their knowledge and expertise with wreck diving & wreck penetration.

This was my 6th course with Cardiff Scuba, can't wait for my 7th.

Rescue Diver

Big thanks to the whole team (DMs and fellow rescue students) who helped us and guided us over the past few weeks.
The open water sessions are genuinely two of the most demanding days I have had for a very long time, both physically and mentally. However the feeling you get after hearing that you've passed is indescribable.
The extra steps you do on the course with Cardiff Scuba not only helps to make you feel more confident about handling an emergency should one arise but also more confident in your diving in general.
So once again, many thanks for a couple of very hard but very enjoyable few days

Specialty Course

Dry Suit Diver

Having started my PADI journey with Cardiff Scuba last year it was about time that I did the Dry Suit Course!
As always Rob was on hand to help, support and encourage all the way through the course.
The course itself focused on my buoyancy skills and left me feeling more confident after the two dives! I learnt some great techniques and as always with the team at Cardiff Scuba I knew I was learning from the best.
If your thinking of doing your Dry suit course - don't look anywhere else. Thanks - Amy

Speciality Course

Deep Diver

Just finished my deep diver course and what another excellent course with as always diver safety as top priority. The course makes you aware of all the hazards of deep diving and all the skills you need to safety dive to 40m depths .
As always the instruction given at dive briefings and in the water by Rob are second to none, Along with the other instructor and divemaster and Rescue divers you feel very safe in the water.
If you are going to DEEP DIVE then the only place to learn is Cardiff Scuba.
Many thanks to Rob and the team for guiding me through my Deep Course diving safely.
