PADI Courses

PADI LogoBook now, we do not usually run scheduled course as we run courses continuously and are very flexible regarding fitting students in.

As a PADI Diver, you carry the most respected and sought after scuba credentials in the world. No matter where you choose to dive, your PADI certification card will be recognized and accepted.

We do the theory part of the courses at the shop and the pool sessions at the Colinette Hotel. La Vallette bathing pools and the Grammar School pool.

  • Corporate discover scuba diving package – up to 10 participants and includes 1 x Pool dive. 

    There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

  • Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. Most PADI dive shops offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or while you’re on vacation.

    While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

    We will then take you for the OW dive in one of our lovely bays ( weather permitting ) where you will get a real feel for diving and explore our local marine life with one of our professional PADI instructors.

    To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health.

  • Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months.

    This course is a single pool dive to demonstrate the use and benefits of diving with a dry suit. We also offer the PADI Dry Suit Diver speciality which includes this dive and two open water sea dives. The PADI Dry Suit Diver speciality is also included in the Speciality Package.

    If you complete this dive and want to continue, we will give you a voucher towards the cost of the PADI Dry Suit Diver speciality.

  • Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you start learning right away.

    EFR courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the PADI Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors.

  • Looking for the first step in working with scuba as a career? Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program.
