Scuba Diving Certification Courses

We offer the PADI System of diver education, the most widely recognised system of diver education in the world. Courses are conducted by our experienced dive instructors, all of whom are passionate about what they do and look forward to sharing the same passion with you as you become certified divers. Our dive team is here to ensure that your dive education is safe, fun and memorable.

In the last decade we have dived with newly certified divers as well as “advanced divers” who completed their courses in the wilderness (i.e. not with us). Watching them do safety stops, maintain buoyancy, etc. has been shocking and scary, as to the quality of training being offered today. This is why we place an emphasis on the fundamentals of diving and impart quality training so that you’re the best diver that you can be.

At our diving school, a diving license is something that is earned and that you are proud of. We go beyond merely giving you a PADI certification. We teach you to dive and make you understand your underwater environment in a way that would make even Poseidon proud.
