Do you want to be a certified Diver but don't have enough time on your holiday to complete the Open Water Diver certification?

Then the PADI Scuba Diver certification could be the course for you and can be completed within just 1-2 days, or longer if you would prefer.

 Diving in Boracay  Diving in Boracay

To qualify you will cover just 3 of the 5 sections of Knowledge Development, 3 of the 5 Pool Sessions and 2 of the 4 Open Water Training Dives. 

Whilst this will give you limited certification, it's ideal if you don't have enough time to complete the full requirements for the Open Water Diver or if you only intend to continue to dive in the company of a Dive Guide.

During the course you’ll learn:

  • Buoyancy skills, including comfortable descents and ascents, and breathing underwater.
  • Staying warm underwater, streamlining your swimming skills and buddy diving techniques.
  • Diving environments and aquatic life you’re likely to encounter.
  • Preventing common problems underwater.
  • An introduction to boat diving.

As a PADI Scuba Diver, you will be qualified to:-

  • Dive, under direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, PADI Assistant Instructor or PADI Instructor to a depth of 12 Meters/40ft
  • Rent or purchase Scuba Equipment, obtain Air Fills and take part in appropriately supervised dive activities
  • Continue on with your Dive Training and Certifications

The Scuba Diver certification can be the starting point for your diving life; you can go on to complete your Open Water Diver certification with a few additional dives and knowledge development, when you are ready. 

As a Scuba Diver you can also take Equipment Specialist and Project AWARE Specialist

    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.

    High

    These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.
