13 - SCUBA and Water Sports (Years 8 and 9)
A chance to begin your PADI and SCUBA experience starts here – experience the local underwater environment like never before, experience the weightlessness and the tranquility of the marine world. We will be taking the opportunity to take students through the PADI SCUBA DIVER qualification over the course of three days, including theory development, pool training and Open Water dives. All equipment will be provided and the students will have the option of furthering their qualifications to the full (Junior) PADI OPEN WATER DIVER, for an extra fee. There are medical restrictions associated with SCUBA (especially those around respiratory ailments – asthma etc) and we would ask that any queries are raised sooner rather than later. Further to these three days there will be a day at Splashdown in Paignton and day on top of the water with the SUP team at Mountbatten. Students spend the day stand up paddle boarding and kayaking.
