You may remember your PADI Instructor saying, “If you travel to a new location or visit an unfamiliar dive environment, get a local orientation.” Its good advice and easy to do. Just ask us for a Discover Local Diving experience here on the Isle of Arran. If you've dived mostly abroad or in warmer waters then the UK conditions can be totally alien. Scuba diving with an experienced local dive professional lets you relax and better enjoy the adventure. We know our local waters and can help you get the most out of your time on Arran. This is a semi instruction dive. If you don't have your own equipment you can rent what you need from us for a fee. Please note if you don't have a drysuit certification you''ll either need to complete your course with us or bring your own wetsuit. If you feel like you need a refresher before the dive, ask about doing a ReActivate dive. 1 Dive | You must hold a PADI Scuba Diver certification (or higher) certification OR qualifying entry-level certification from another recognised agency (please speak to us before booking)
Cancellations by us: We hate cancelling any course or session but sometimes the weather can mean it is no longer safe or suitable for us to run your session or course. This is especially true for introductory or entry level activities. Scuba diving is a sport which comes with serious risks and the safety of you and our crew is the number one priority. If we have to cancel for any reason, we’ll always look to reschedule in the first instance, credit for another date or offer a refund (minus transaction and course material fees). Where cancellations are made for any reason Dive Arran Ltd will not be liable for any other associated costs you may have incurred such as but not limited to accommodation or travel. Our dive professional's decision is final, and we ask that you respect their experienced judgement in all circumstances. If you attend for an activity having provided false information, having not completed the required e-learning and assessments, not gained medical clearance (if applicable), under the influence (of any substance or impairing medication) or in any other state which means you are not safe or suitable to dive then no refund will be given. Due to the risks posed by this activity we reserve the right to cancel or terminate any session without reason or warning if we deem your conduct puts yourself or others at risk. We recommend that like any activity you ensure you are suitably insured against cancellations. Cancellations by you: We understand that life can change at short notice, and you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance. We’ll always look to help you reschedule your activity but if we can’t then we’re always happy to refund you (minus transaction and course material fees). Please note where less than 24 hours’ notice is given by you then we reserve the right to retain your complete activity payment. Please understand that unlike many activities diving requires planning and equipment preparation that costs us both time and money. We recommend that like any activity you ensure you are suitably insured against cancellations. Extended Courses and Additional Fee's: If you are unable to complete your course in the designated time due to your own performance and need to attend for further dives we reserve the right to add additional teaching and equipment fee's prior to any certification. This includes but is not limited to any remediation instruction from your lack of preparation for continuing education courses, failing to complete all required e-learning modules and assessments, not meeting performance requirements despite reasonable instructional input, failing to gain medical clearance (if applicable) and or any other reason caused by you in relation to a delay to your scheduled session. Lost and damaged equipment will be chargeable at the current trade rate.
