We are a small resort with only seven rooms tucked away on a very quiet island with few dive operations nearby. We teach many PADI courses but they rarely overlap so you will enjoy training in small groups or even one-on-one By choosing to learn to scuba dive with us you benefit from:
Plenty of time to practice the various skills until you are happy with them and NOT get rushed along due to the time constraints of having a big group of fellow trainees.
Small training groups. Many times we have heard about Open Water divers who lost their confidence due to being lost in a big training group and not being given enough instructor attention.
Amazing surroundings with safe, calm training sites close to the resort. Sites are also packed with some of the most diverse marine species on the planet at the heart of the Coral Triangle.
Top notch instruction where we aim to build your confidence and train you to excel rather than just pass!
The Open Water course is split into three sections:
Knowledge Development – learning the theory of diving using your PADI Open Water diver manual and the PADI Open Water diver video. We also offer eLearning so you can prepare for the course already in advance and focus more on the in-water part of the course when you are here.
Confined Water training – building your confidence by learning a series of skills with an instructor in pool-like conditions. The only difference is that our pool has tropical fish in it!
Open Water training – applying the skills you have learned during confined sessions in open water diving conditions where you get to explore more and get to grips with key skills like buoyancy and the buddy system.
Once qualified you will be licensed to dive anywhere in the world to a maximum of 18 metres with a buddy. Once you have reached this point check out the Advanced Open Water course to increase your knowledge and confidence as well as increasing your depth limit to 30 metres.
