Welcome to Extreme Marine
As well as being Bristol's longest-established scuba diving shop, selling a huge selection of scuba gear from many of the world's top manufacturers, Extreme Marine is also a great place to learn to scuba dive; a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre dive school in Bristol, offering the complete range of PADI scuba diving courses.
However this site is much more than just an advert for the shop - it's also a useful source of information for both new starters and more experienced divers alike. Site maps, useful links, latest product info, and special offers are all just a few clicks away, as well as diving holiday information and the ever-growing photo gallery (the photos are getting better too!).
Anyway, enough talk. Please use the menu on the left to navigate around the site, or just click here to dive on in...
The Open Water course is split into theory sessions (held in the shop on Wednesday evenings, 7:00 - 9:00pm), and pool sessions (held on the corresponding Saturday evenings at Clifton College Pool, 6:45 - 9:30pm).
The qualifying Open Water Dives take place after the theory and pool sessions are completed. These are normally on the two Sundays following the last pool session, but this is obviously dependent on the weather.
