PADI & SSI Dive Courses with Emperor Divers


Duration: 1-3 days

Both PADI and SSI courses are very flexible, meaning you can start in one dive centre and finish in another. Maybe you don't fancy sitting in a classroom when you're on holiday and would rather do that part at home, or maybe you started a diving course on a different holiday but had to stop for some reason - if you come to us part way through the Open Water Diver or Scuba Diver course it's called a 'referral'.

The usual Open Water Diver referral takes place after completing the theory and pool sessions back home before coming out to complete just the 4 dives in warm Red Sea waters, so the price we have on our list reflects that 2 day section. Don't worry if you're at a different stage of your course though, simply email us or use the live chat to get a package tailored to you.

We do ask that you bring along all the materials you were given to prevent being charged for more, and you must have a referral document that has been signed off with all the parts you've completed, valid within 1 year. Please email for further details.
