Choosing the right course comes down to whether you are already a certified diver or not, and from there; having an idea of what you want to get out of diving.


For anyone not certified, then the 3-day Open Water Diver course is your starting point. This certification will set you on a path of adventure and discovery, as you will be able to travel the world; exploring it's watery environments! 

For anyone already certified, then you are definitely spoilt for choice, as there is a huge range of challenging and exciting dive courses to choose from. This includes the Advanced Open Water course, or Specialty diver courses, where you will learn about and try different types of diving - a great way to see what it is that most fascinates you and motivates you to keep diving.

This course covers aspects of diver rescues and techniques which will be completely new to most divers, and is highly demanding but very rewarding.
