PADI Scuba Diver

PADI Scuba Diver

If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you - particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning the Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.

PADI Scuba Diver

To enroll in a PADI Scuba Diver course (or Junior Scuba Diver course), you must be 12 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, but you can try it first through the Discover Scuba Diving program.

As a PADI Scuba Diver you'll be able to:

Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.

Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.

Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.

The Scuba Diver PADI course takes a minimum of 2 days, it includes:

  • Knowledge Development
    Self-study through Chapters 1-3 of the Open Water Diver Manual
  • Confined Water Dives
    2/3 sessions with the instructor to train basic skills from either the pool or beach.
  • Open Water Dives
    2 experience dives with the instructor from either the boat or shore to a maximum depth of 12 meters.

You can get started immediately with the knowledge development portion of the course and work at your own pace using the innovative interactive system PADI eLearning®.

Our experience shows that both digital versions of the manual are preferable because they allow the student:

  • to start to study at home at his own pace;
  • to optimize the time with the instructor;
  • to dedicate more time to in-water practice;
  • freeing up valuable pleasure time during the stay.

Rates per person. All-inclusive.
