If you are short on time but want to become a certified diver – we can offer you the PADI Scuba Diver Course.
This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five confined sessions, and the first two water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver.
This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the open water diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:
- Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth 12 metres / 40 feet.
- Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision.
- Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses.
The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who’s thought that a course would take too long or be too difficult. During the course you’ll cover material and practice skills related to topics such as:
- Buoyancy skills including comfortable ascents and descents, 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.
