Student Courses

Swanage Diving is running Student Diving Courses.

PADI courses are an excellent idea for students doing marine based courses or who would like to learn how to dive, achieve the next level or gain more experience. With the certifications you gain you can work and volunteer for positions abroad. It will also give you more opportunities in finding placements, field work and employment in the future.

Students are offered 15% off normal prices, help with selecting and purchasing equipment, free advice, local dives and diving abroad. Most diving activities take place around the Swanage and Portland area which are diverse in marine life, wrecks and reefs. There is also an area in Studland that has Sea Horses.

Your instructor, Dan, is currently studying Marine and Coastal Management at Bournemouth University. He has worked and dived in a variety of countries and is available for a chat at most times.
