Learn to scuba dive

Do you want to experience something different and new? Then we have exactly what you are looking for. Why not try to breath under water?

New scuba divers often have difficulty deciding on which diving school choose given the amount on offer. Price should not be a deciding factor.

You need to take into consideration:

What facilities the school has to offer ?
What experience does the school and its instructors have ?
What level of scuba diving can the school take you to ?

Once decided upon, you will need to dedicate a certain amount of your time so as to study the course work that is critical to passing the final exam. Once achieved you are then ready to get your Open Water Ticket.

Passing your Open Water is like passing your driving test. It is only once you have the paperwork in your hand that you will finally start to learn how to dive. You will know the basics but it is now time to get your feet wet on a regular basis.

There are numerous locations that are suitable for new scuba divers in most places around the world. There are also several reputable travel agencies that will help you to discover the beauty of the oceans with expert guidance from local professionals.


Discover Scuba

This is the first step into scuba diving and it only takes a day. You will firstly be introduced to the world of scuba diving with a brief class. Then already you are off to the sea or the swimming pool with your professional instructor for a session of one hour during which you will have fun practicing all the great new skills you have just learned.

All you need to do now is book your first scuba dive experience!

Scuba Diver

If you have limited time on your vacation then the Scuba Diver course is for you.

The Scuba Diver program, offered by PADI  and several other organisations is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for vacationers or people who only plan to dive a few times each year.

Your certification is internationally recognized and lasts for a lifetime.

Open Water

During the Open Water Course you will learn all the techniques needed to move your body and equipment safely underwater. After completing the course successfully you will be ready to dive without the direct supervision of your instructor. You can dive without the need of any professional guidance. Find a buddy and the sea is yours!

Anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification.

Advanced Open Water

Are you looking for a new dive experience? Then PADI’s Advanced Open Water Diver program is what you are looking for. Most organisation s offer a similar program

During this course you will be able to refine your diving skills and to explore new diving adventures, like deep and night diving. The Advanced Open Water Diver program simply has something for anyone.

Rescue Diver

The Rescue diver course will teach you to evaluate, take control, and take action when it is needed. The first step to professionalism, or just a course that will make your buddies feel safe when they dive with you? The decision is yours.

The rescue techniques are important in order to help yourself and other divers in the case of emergency. Every diver should know what to do in an emergency and therefore this course is interesting and helpful for everyone.

The Rescue Diver program develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diving assistance and rescue, manage diving accidents and carry out first aid. The program is an important step towards expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. Rescue Diver (or equivalent) certification is also a prerequisite for all leadership programs.


Dive Master

Become a professional! Use your new skills on your holidays or as a permanent job. You will practice map making, assisting the instructors, organizing diving excursions and boat dives. You will also learn how to teach some diving courses.

The Dive master program is your entry into leadership level of diver education.

Assistant Instructor

Many Assistant Instructors will take a year or so away from the real world and travel to work in various countries so at to quickly gain experience by diving different sites, conditions through a number of scuba shops and schools.


Scuba instructors will often set up their own school and enjoy the life that many of us crave. Being a scuba instructor and owning your own school can be a fantastic way to live but be aware that like anything, this is a business and it is hard work to make it successful.
