a padi course for the vacation diver


A wonderful PADI course that fits into your holiday without taking up too much time.  It is popular with guests who have tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience and wish to credit this first time  pool lesson and dive towards getting certified.   

The PADI Scuba Diver certification is also a stepping stone for those who have always wanted to do the PADI Open Water Diver Course but never have the time.  Upgrading to the PADI Open Water Diver Course can be done at any point in the future, anywhere in the world, at any PADI Dive Centre.  

The PADI Scuba Diver Course qualifies you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres/ 40 feet, always with a professional.  The certification is valid for life.  In our opinion it is well suited to vacation or occasional divers in tropical locations.
