Learn to Dive

  • The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to became a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide.
  • This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.
  • You’ll need 1 day to develop the practical skills to get a certification that qualifies you to dive under supervision of a PADI professional to a maximum depth of 12 mt/40 feet.
  • The PADI digital material, (manual and videos, we’ll send you in advance), allow you to prepare the theory and the knowledge reviews, to your own pace; once here, after a quick review, you’ll be ready to get wet!
  • 1 full day to complete the practical part: 1 morning for the confined water and 1  afternoon for the 2 ocean dives is the time you’ll need to get the certification!
