Discover Scuba Diving is one of the most popular dive programs designed for the absolute beginner. Its popularity is due to the fact that it is available for the whole family (from 8 years and over). This 2 hour program consists of a briefing and a shallow dive together with an instructor. During the dive, we feed the fish and take digital photos. We will make sure you are picked up from the Villa and returned afterwards.
The PADI Open Water course has been widely been acknowledged as the complete Entry level for people who want to obtain their first PADI license. It allows the holder to dive with another certified diver to a max of 18m. This is also a family based course in which members of the whole family can participate (minimum age 10 years). The course consists of theory sessions (using a DVD and manual), pool sessions and 4 dives in the sea. We can arrange a tailor made schedule for you as required to fit in with your other holiday commitments. Time schedule: 3 to 4 days at approx. 5 hours a day. Everybody who is in good health, reasonably fit and comfortable in the water can earn the PADI Open Water Diver certification.
We also offer other dive courses such as Scuba Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver, Rescue Diver and Speciality courses.
As we offer a full dive schedule for certified divers each week, you may choose to do a boat dive, a shore dive or both. As the diving in Playa Blanca is perfect for the novice/intermediate divers, we feel that it will suit people who dive occasionally or when on holiday. We offer more than 10 different dive sites in Playa Blanca, including reef, wreck and wall dives. Depths vary from 14m to 30m. One of the best dive sites is Flamingo Wall which offers an abundance of marine life. For people who have not dived over 1 year or who have little dive experience we offer a refresher dive. Also we offer dive packages for 3, 6 and 10 dives.
Free travel arrangements to and from the dive school are covered by ourselves on all courses/diving.
Diving after flying is not a problem. We advise all customers not to dive on the same day as flying but to leave a day between diving and flying.
After the course, which takes 3-4 days, you get your PADI Open Water Diver certification, which is recognised worldwide. As a certified diver you have the freedom to dive with a buddy, independent of a professional.
The Scuba Diver course is simply half the Open Water course over 2 days, which will allow the holder to dive to a maximum of 12m, always with a professional. This course is perfect for younger members of the family, ie. teenagers who don’t want to study too much but want to obtain a dive license.
