PADI Open Water Fastrack Scuba

PADI Open Water Fastrack Scuba

The PADI Open Water Fastrack is the way to go for anyone wanting to learn to dive – right now! You can start on the Saturday morning and be a certified diver by the Sunday afternoon the following week. All that without taking a single day off work! They say that mimicry is the highest form of flattery? Other centres are trying to mimic Fastrack… But so far, no one has succeed!


It’s Fastrack by name, but that doesn’t mean you lose out on anything by going Fastrack. You will have as much pool and classroom time as on any of our other open water programmes, we just save time by completing multiple sessions on the same day and therefore less time is wasted.


Although this option may seem a very quick way of going about learning to dive, just look at the schedule. With Fastrack Scuba you get on average around twelve hours pool time over the whole programme.


Compare that with our competitors' midweek programmes and taking off preparation time at the start and finish of each of the pool sessions they offer, it would take you around four months to complete just the pool training!


Please feel free to email us at for more specific information regarding the best training option for you.



What will I do?


The first weekend is split between the pool training and theory sessions. First your instructor will teach you the basics. Taking your first scuba sessions in our heated pool, you will learn the practical skills needed to allow you to dive safely. The theory is completed in our comfortable multimedia classrooms.


Once your skills and knowledge are up to scratch you will move onto the open water dives the following weekend. You will demonstrate your skills over four exciting open water training dives. You will be using drysuits for these dives to provide maximum comfort and as you will use them for all your future UK dives, why not start as you mean to go on?


All the PADI materials and scuba equipment needed to complete the programme are included in the cost.




How long will it take?


As little as two weekends. With all the training facilities in one place we can offer you a training package unmatched by anyone.


Other options are available including mid-week and executive packages, so there is no rush and how you complete your training is up to you.

Aquasport can offer unlimited pool training so we go along at your pace, not ours.




What will I need?


Just your manual to get going! A £149 deposit is required to book your Open Water training and you will receive your PADI Open Water Diver Manual to start you on your way. You will also need to fill out a self certification medical statement. You will need to be able to swim 200m in your own time and in any style and perform a safety float (tread water) for ten minutes.


Everything you need to complete the programme is included. We recommend that you buy your own mask and snorkel but we also have plenty in the school for you to borrow if needed.



PADI Fastrack Open Water Diver Programme £499.


A £149 deposit is required when you book your programme with Aquasport.


Balance of payment is due two weeks prior to the start of your training.




The Fastrack starts at 9am on the first and third Saturday of every month. The second weekend follows on consecutively on the second and fourth weekend, although you can complete your training on any scheduled weekend, just don’t leave it too long in between.
