PADI Open Water Diver Course

* 5-8 days

Always wanted to take scuba diving lessons? This is where it starts. Get certified by PADI – the world’s most popular and widely recognized scuba training organization.

Emergency First Response

* 1 day

Are you ready to handle an emergency? Learn first aid, CPR and how to operate an AED. Be prepared to give the necessary aid to a family member, dive buddy or co-workers, before Emergency Medical Services arrive.

Build confidence and expand your scuba skills. Try out different specialties while gaining important experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. 

PADI Rescue Diver Course

* 5-7 days

Considered by many divers to be the most challenging, yet most rewarding, course they’ve ever taken. Learn to prevent and manage in-water problems and become more confident in your skills as a diver.

PADI Enriched Air Specialty 

* 1 day

The Enriched Air Diver course is popular because enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. 

PADI Divemaster Course

* 2-3 weeks

Deep Diver Specialty Course

* 2-4 days

Do you feel confined by the 18 metres/60 feet limit of Open Water certification? Learn to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet.

Dry Suit Diver Specialty Course

* 2-4 days

Do wet suits keep you cooler (and wetter) than what you'd prefer? Want to extend dives and lengthen your diving season? Try going dry! A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water.

Take the first step in becoming a PADI Pro and do what you love to do as a career. Scuba divers look up to divemasters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others.
