The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the excitement of diving under the supervision of a PADI Instructor in pool or pool-like conditions. During your adventure, you'll master some basic concepts and scuba skills and might even head off on an open water adventure. As soon as you finish Discover Scuba Diving, you're on your way to an internationally recognized certification. That's because you learn skills from the PADI Open Water Diver course during your Discover Scuba Diving adventure.
For certified divers who haven't been diving for 6 months or more there is an obligation to have a review or check-dive to refresh your skills and double check buoyancy control etc. This is certainly good practice, not just for your own safety but also for the ecological safety of the reef! It helps divers to get familiar with the variety of entry techniques required, while also to get used to the increased salinity of the Mediterranean Sea.
The PADI Scuba Diver program is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for vacationers or people who only plan to dive a couple of times a year.
As a subprogram of the PADI Open Water Diver program, the PADI Scuba Diver rating allows you to get certified quickly and easily by minimizing time constraints.
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a Scuba Diver certification and dive up to 12 meters with an instructor. You earn this rating by completing three pool dives, three knowledge development sessions and by making two open water (sea) dives. PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
This is the beginners’ full course. It lasts for 3-4 days and at the end of it you will be certified to dive all over the world, to the maximum depth of 18m. This course contains all basic safety techniques of scuba diving and PADI rules and regulations. The first 2 days of the course are mainly in the confined water area, learning the skills. After a final exam (multiple choice), you will then dive in open water to your max depth limit of 18m and enjoy the under water world with full safety.
You don’t want to finish the whole beginner’s course at once?
You want to start learning in your own country, and do the open water dives in warm, crystal clear waters?
This program is for you. You can finish pool dives and the theory part with the nearest PADI Dive Center in your neighborhood, and finish the course with us. This gives you the opportunity to have more fun during your holiday as well. Stop by the nearest PADI Dive Center and ask for a PADI Open Water Diver Referral Course.
The Adventures in Diving program offers both the Adventure Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver certifications. If you complete any three adventure dives, you can earn your PADI Adventure Diver certification.
