What is PADI?
“The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) is the world’s largest recreational diving membership and diver training organization founded in 1966”.
All our courses are taught by certified PADI instructors who have experience diving and teaching all over the world.
Discover Scuba Diving
If you have always wanted to experience diving but aren’t ready to plunge right in, Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is designed to get you in the water in a safe and supervised setting. An instructor will go over equipment and basic diving skills with you. Then you spend up to 45 minutes in a pool trying these new skills and just having fun. After a pool session you can try a shallow Open Water dive with an instructor. A DSD is perfect if you want to give scuba diving a try. Who knows – you might get hooked!!
If you have been out of the water for a while and want to get back in then a Scuba Review will be helpful. It’s not required but is recommended if you need to shake off the cobwebs and brush up on previously acquired skills. You will be asked to take a short quiz and from there we will work on skills which the instructor feels need reviewing.
This is a Snorkeling Workshop. We will go over some basic skills like clearing the mask and snorkel, and how to dive properly. We will also focus on how to move in the water so as to not disturb fish and coral so that you get to see and enjoy more of the ocean floor!
The Scuba Diver course is the first step towards your Open Water Certification. This course is good for people who don’t have the time to commit to the entire Open Water course.
In the Scuba Diver course you will do the majority of course and pool work as well as Open Water Dives 1 and 2. On completion you will be a certified Scuba Diver and can go diving with a professional such as a Divemaster or Instructor, giving you the opportunity to work on your skills. At any time you can continue where you left off and upgrade to Open Water Diver.
Open Water Diver
The Open Water Diver course gives you the skills and qualifications to become a diver. This course can span 3-4 days and will involve some classroom work and lots of time in the water. You will go through all necessary skills and theory involved in diving which will be practiced in a pool.
After pool sessions you do three open water dives where you demonstrate to the instructors the skills you have learned. On the fourth open water dive you plan your own dive and head out with your instructor.
On completion of this course you will be able to dive all over the world with a buddy to a maximum depth of 18 meters.
Advanced Open Water
The Advanced Open Water course builds on what you learned in Open Water and is designed to make you a more knowledgeable, confident and safe diver. This course consists of five open water dives / specialties.
Navigation and Deep are required and the others are up to you to choose. On completion you will be certified to maximum depth of 30 meters. All specialties will be described in your Advanced Open Water manual.
This is a great course and provides an opportunity to work with your instructor on improving your diving. And it’s a lot of fun!
Emergency First Response (E.F.R)
Emergency First Response is a great certification and skill to have for diving and any sporting other activity. This a one day course that covers basic first aid and CPR. This is an international certification that will be valid for two years. After two years you can do a refresher and get re-certified.
This course teaches you valuable skills and is required to move on to Rescue Diver level and above.
This is a fun and intense course that will make you a confident and responsible diver. This course can span three days and is dependent on your progress. There will be some coursework and lots of time in the water running rescue drills and problem solving. Towards the end of the course we will do an open water dive where you have to respond to scenarios that your instructors will create.
This is a great course if you’re a passionate diver. A rescue diver is always a valued member of your diving group so take the challenge and become a rescue diver!
Becoming a Divemaster means becoming a PADI professional diver and it’s a major step towards becoming an instructor. The recommended duration is a minimum of six weeks and consists of a variety of activities like course work, skills, assisting on courses, leading dives and more.
This is a excellent course and you will learn a lot. It’s the type of course were the more you put in the more you will get out of it, in other words, a good investment.
