Want to get certified but are short on time?
There are many who come to the Island to try diving for the first time and are completely blown away on their first introductory dive. Some of them wish they had opted for the course while those who have even a day extra end up doing the PADI Scuba Diver course. Because that’s literally all it takes to get this easy and basic diving certification. In this course you will learn the basic science behind diving and simple skills that allow you to dive safely and comfortably.
It requires you to complete three out of five theory sections, three out of five confined water dives and just two of four Open Water dives over just one or two days.
The PADI Scuba Diver is a step towards getting your PADI Open Water license and you can upgrade whenever you feel like you’re ready or have the time. The license allows you to dive up to 12m but under the direct supervision of a dive professional anywhere in the world. The PADI Scuba Diver course (SD) is perfect for those who realize they don’t have enough time on their holiday to do the full Open Water course and still want to get certified. It is also useful for people who don’t intend to dive very deep or without a dive leader.
