Becoming a scuba diver is the first step to completing your open water qualification


This certification allows you to experience diving to the fullest. You will start with ½ a day in confined water (pool or shallow water) to master skills, knowledge and equipment, before heading off to dive one of our beautiful shallow reefs.


We will give you everything need to have fun underwater, except your personal bathing suit.

During the course you will do 2 dives with your Instructor.

The schedule could be different based on the location but we usually meet at the dive shop half an hour before the boat depart to try the equipment see a video and listen the briefing then in shallow water you are going to practice some skills and in a ratio of a maximum of four divers per professional the adventure begins…


This is a pre-entry-level scuba diving course. So… There are no other requirements besides:

  • Being comfortable in the water and could float for 10 minutes
  • Be at least 10 years old
  • Be in reasonably good health
  • Complete the Scuba Diver Releases and Medical Questionnaire (PDF)
  • A ‘Yes’ Response on the previous Medical Questionnaire will require you and your physician to complete and sign the PADI Medical Statement Form (PDF) stating that you are fit to dive. This is ONLY needed if you have a ‘Yes’ response to any of the medical questions on the Medical Questionnaire.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow you into the water, for either program, until the proper documents have been completed, signed and presented to your instructor.
