PADI Scuba Diving Courses
From Discover Scuba Diving to Divemaster!
We exclusively teach PADI courses and attach great importance to small groups and good learning conditions. The following courses are offered:
Discover Scuba Diving (DSD)
Discover Scuba Diving is not a course in the narrow sense, but a single dive experience. We give you a guarantee that it will take place under the direct supervision of an experienced instructor. Don't worry, we will prepare you properly for your first dive experience!
The DSD consists of three parts: knowledge developement, confined water training and one open water dive by boat, which can lead us to a maximum depth of 40 feet. The minimum age to participate in a DSD is 10 years! Basically, it is the first chapter of the open water course and under specific conditions you can get credit towards your open water license!
PADI Open Water Diver Course
If you've always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course - the world's most popular and widely recognized scuba course. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive and gone on to discover the wonders of the aquatic world through this course.
To enroll in a PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases: knowledge developement, confined water training and four open water dives, which we do by boat. For the whole course you should bring three to four days of time with you. The complete rental equipment: mask with snorkel, fins, wetsuit, buoyancy control device, regulator with SPG, dive computer and weight belt is included in the price. Our rental equipments are new!
PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course
Exploration, Excitement, Experiences! That's what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don't have to be "advanced" to take it - it's designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives.
You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of our experienced PADI Instructor. (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced course.
You'll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives - Deep and Underwater Navigation - and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives. During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have - photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
PADI Rescue Diver Course
Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they've ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun - it's serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
(Junior) Advanced Divers who are at least 12 years old may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. The Rescue course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:
- Self rescue
- Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
- Emergency management and equipment
- Rescuing panicked divers
- Rescuing unresponsive divers
