Welcome to Orca Scuba Diving Academy
Scuba Diving Lessons and Courses are our business and being one of the leading PADI 5 Star IDC (Instructor Development Centre) in Essex, we feel we have a lot to offer anybody looking to try scuba diving or further their scuba diving journey, especially if you live in Essex. Based in Basildon in Essex, at the Underwater Film Studio, we have first class service available to all of our students. We have pools of varying depths available to us and our fully stocked shop is next door to a 6m heated pool.
We have a long proven track record working with children and we are involved with many schools through out the Essex area. We have a team of trained staff who are qualified to teach the disabled as well. At Orca Scuba Diving Academy we are very proud to have trained many students from PADI Open Water Diver to PADI Open Water Instructor.
Alternatively, why not take on the challenge and become a PADI Master Scuba Diver. This is PADIs highest recreational diving level.
With the number of trips we organise each year it was inevitable that we became a Scuba Travel Recommended Dive Centre. Enquires from the non diving public are growing weekly, many wish to learn whilst on holiday so a mix and match a package holiday, currently we have the following departures scheduled.
Escorted by Orca - Sail away on the ever popular, award winning Whirlwind. Departing from Sharm, you will spend 7 nights on board on a full board basis (twin share cabin). This is a classic itinerary in the Northern Red Sea with up to 22 dives over the week. All marine park fees, 12lt tank, air fills and weights are included in your package - please prebook nitrox and 15lt tanks before travel. All trips are fully guided with 2 expert guides. Flights are with Thomson from Gatwick and transfer
holiday package £1150
One of the best ways to learn to dive is to complete the pool training and classroom sessions in your local dive centre and then finish off the four open water dives in tropical warm waters. Why spend time in the classroom when you could be diving?
This package includes both parts of the course, course materials, plus flights and accommodation in some of the best places in the world to enjoy your first diving experience.
There are few names as well known in Sharm as Camel Resort and their dive centre stands out for their excellence, attentive manner and friendly welcome. The original dive centre in Naama Bay has literally decades' of diving experience and local knowledge around Sharm's many dive sites. The team is the very definition of professionalism yet they always manage to combine this with a relaxed atmosphere and careful eye on safety.
Finishing your PADI Open Water course couldn't be easier with Camel. With a whole week to enjoy in the sun and sea and no classroom work left to do, you'll come home not only a newly certified diver but with a few fantastic dives to rave to your friends about as well!
