PADI Scuba Diver Certification 

The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who has thought that a full PADI Open Water Course will take too much time away from their holiday.

This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving mainly in the company of a PADI Centre, dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver, and at least you will not have to go through a pool session each time you want to experience a dive on your holiday.

By becoming a Certified Scuba Diver you will experience a connection with nature; a feeling of freedom and a transformation. It immerses you in new sensations and experiences. It transforms your perception of life forever.

Our PADI Dive courses only take between 2 and 4  few days to complete, depending on whether PADI E-Learning is completed prior to your arrival at our Dive Shop.  PADI E-Learning enables you to complete most of the “theory” portion of the certification online.

We can tailor the course to suit your schedule.

You don’t have to be Advanced to take this course. It’s designed to advance your diving skills, so you can start right away after completing your PADI Open Water Diver Certification. This course helps build confidence and expand your Scuba skills through different Adventure Dives.
