become a scuba diver


THE PADI SCUBA DIVER COURSE is an intermediate step towards the standard PADI Open Water Certification. If you are short on time, this course will certify you to dive up to 12 metres under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. Over 2 days, your instructor will introduce you to the basic physics, equipment, environment and the joy of diving. With a combination of dive theory, pool practice and two open water dives, you’ll never want this course to end! Plus, the next time you get in the water, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade your certification to become a full PADI Open Water Diver. We specialise in flexible schedules, thorough instruction and small classes. E-learning is available.
