Private Diving Tutition

We have always offered discrete private courses at home and abroad to clients who don't get on well with group training sessions or who would rather remain anonymous.
However with Covid-19 there is a marked increase in interest from individuals and family units who want to minimise the exposure to people outside of their immediate family unit.

How does it work?

The training will be identical to the training you would receive during one of our normal courses, however you would be working either with a member of your own family or your instructor

Will it cost more?

It depends………
If you are looking for a one to one experience then the answer is yes it will cost a fair amount more, we have fixed costs per course such as staffing, traveling and swimming pool rental. Normally those costs are shared amongst the students on the course, on a solo course you have the burden of all costs not just a share of them.
However it follows if there are two or three of your family on a course the burden becomes shared again and a private family course becomes only a little more than a normal course.
Again if you have your own pool and its suitable this could reduce the additional costs even further.

As a guide, based on our Premium Open Water course prices would be:
Solo course 70% uplift on normal pricing £892.50 per person
Course for 2 35% uplift on normal pricing £708.75 per person
Course for 3 18% uplift on normal pricing £619.50 per person
Courses for 4 and above charged at our normal rate + any additional expenses.

I have my own Yacht or Motor Boat can you run a course on this?

Broadly speaking ……. Yes
There are lots of factors that have to be considered but all of them have solutions

Keeping you safe...

Our first consideration as always is your safety, in an effort to ensure this all our training will be undertaken in line with the industry best standards.

  • Out training group sizes will be strictly limited to 4 students and two PADI professionals.
  • All equipment will be washed, sterilised between uses and stored in a well ventilated area for at least 36hrs before re-use.
  • If you are undertaking a course that takes more than one session your equipment will be issued to you at the start of the course and you will be asked to keep it and care for it between sessions, thus eliminating any chance of cross infection.
  • Unfortunately numbers in our pool facility and at dive sites are strictly limited at this time to allow for social distancing therefore may not be possible to allow spectators.
  • All students will be expected to observe social distancing, unless from the same cohort.
  • Divers are asked NOT to clear masks by spitting, anti fog will be supplied free of charge at out sanitising station.
  • All entry level courses booked after the 18th of April include a brand new diving mask and where required snorkel for you to keep again ensuring you are the only person using your equipment.
