But there is something invigorating about queuing at 5 am to get into Stoney Cove on a cold and frosty winter morning, breaking the ice as the first divers jump in, the long queues for last weeks sausage rolls and cold coffee and then a 3 hour drive home. Used to call it character building none of these Greek islands in the sun for us English divers, Stoney in January please or even better Horsey Island

10,000 would buy a lot of Red Sea holidays or even a rib, but wish them luck, shame the pool is so small, 40m

Done that many times!!! Its very satisfying to be the first person to the bottom of the pit (before the viz goes).

So you can go in. Train with PADI and become an open water instructor in about 2hrs . Dive to 27m for an hour then get out have a drink and go for a work out. Hope they've got a Chamber

I take it you have a superior training agency in mind that would take longer?

You could get to Ocean Diver/PADI open water for 2 weekends effort.

If I remember right my BSAC club diver took 2 months, Sport diver 1 Month, Dive leader 2 month, TDI advanced nitrox 1 week and TDI advanced Wreck 1 week. This time gives good oppertunity to perfect all the neccessary skills needed for safe diving before you get near the sea. Of all the PADI divers I've met they all seem to still be learning the basics when diving in the sea to as much as 30m
