The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the Open Water course. If you don’t have the time but want to become a diver, then this is definitely the course for you. This course require less time and only covers portions of the Open Water course. It is a great step towards earning the full open water certification in the future!

By signing up to PADI E-learning, you can complete the theory portion prior to your arrival. This will allow you to complete the course in 1 full day instead of 2.
Once completed, the Scuba diver course will grant you a permanent license that allows you to dive anywhere in the world under the direct supervision of a PADI professional to a maximum depth of 12m/40ft. You can also upgrade to open water diver ant any point anywhere in the world.
To enroll in this course you must be at least 10 years old, be comfortable in the water and in good health. There is no prior experience needed before participating in this course.
