During the Scuba Diver course, you will first be taught the essentials of dive theory by one of our professional PADI Instructors in a relaxed island atmosphere, the best place to learn to dive.  You will train in our spacious pool to master the required skills in the open water, with plenty of time allowed to gain confidence and comfort in your personal ability.

You are then taken into Open Water, at some of our beautiful dive sites, to put these skills and knowledge into practice and gain confidence as a scuba diver.  With a maximum group size of 4 students, you will be taught all you need to know by one of our Instructors to dive with confidence upon completing your course.
