Where to Start?
The Ocean Diver Course aims to equip a diver to dive with the club in a variety of conditions to a depth of 20m.
The course starts with a thorough grounding in diving theory in the classroom. These lessons usually take place at the club in Sutton on a Tuesday evening.
The course develops the diver by progressively teaching the practical aspects in a pool.
The course continues in open water usually at an inland lake such as Stoney Cove (Leicester), Vobster Quay (Somerset) or Wraysbury Lake. Here more practical diving skills can be practiced such as navigation along with progression to deeper water.
