Beginner SCUBA Diving Courses
We usually recommend discover SCUBA Diving, or DSD in short, for people who never tried diving before in their life, and are a bit timid or feel stressed in the water. After going over the necessary skills for SCUBA Diving in our pool, you’ll then proceed with our professional SCUBA Diving instructor to the ocean, where you’ll have an actual dive, as deep as 12 meters, escorted by our instructor at all times. Two dives as part of the DSD is also possible.
If you find that the DSD experience went well and you loved it, an Open Water Course (or OW for short), is the natural progression. Please be aware that doing a DSD isn’t a requirement for the Open Water Course, and if you feel comfortable in the ocean and think that diving is your thing, you can just start with it. The OW Diving Course takes between 3-4 days, in which you study the theory involved in diving, as well as practical skill, and have 4 open water dives in the ocean. At the end you’ll receive a certification card that will allow you to dive anywhere in the world.
Advanced courses, like the Advanced Open Water (AOW) and Dive Master Training are also available, as well as a variety of specialty courses. Please see below the courses available with us, and we’d love to accommodate your inquiry, and help you book a course with us!
Advanced SCUBA Diving Courses
Please note that we support both SSI and PADI courses. Though there are differences between the organizations, both offer equivalent SCUBA Diving Courses and Certifications, that differ in name, and the application of some skills. Both will equip you with SCUBA Diving Skills, and we we truly believe that there is no replacement to experience and actual diving! Keep in mind that up to Dive Master you can advance in training in different organizations.
