PADI Discover Scuba Dive

This is suitable for absolute beginners, this is an experience program and does not result in a certification (see scuba diver or open water diver for certification). During this 2 to 3-hour experience your instructor will brief you on the gear, basic diving and safety concepts before heading out to the water. Typical time underwater is around 60 minutes.

PADI Scuba Diver

This is PADI’s first level of certification, this program trains you to dive under professional supervision to a maximum of 12 meters. This course is normally conducted over 2 to 3 days.

PADI Open Water Diver

This is PADI’s most popular course, this trains you to dive with a buddy to a maximum of 18 meters, this course is typically conducted over 4 days.

For the Kids (8 to 10 years)

The Bubblemaker

Let your kids get a taste of what scuba is all about and send them home raving to their friends about it. This is a shallow, maximum 2 meters deep, experience in either the pool or our house reef. Careful they will be instantly addicted! This is typically a 3-hour program.

Seal Team

We warned you when they took the Bubblemaker, it’s addictive, now it’s time for the seal team. This is confined water, task based, scuba training that is similar to what goes on in an open water course, adapted for children. Compare achievements with your kids and make diving a family activity. This is typically conducted over two days.
