PADI Scuba Diver Course
Short on time and long on the urge to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you. This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five confined water sessions, and the first 2 of 4 open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. It will take 1 1/2 days and will give a certification to dive anywhere in the world, under the supervision of a divemaster or instructor, to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet. $ 449 p/p (10% discount for cash payment)
Then, next time you are on holiday, you can upgrade your certification level to Open Water Diver in just another 2 days.
Here at The Big Fish we have small and personalized groups to fit your individual needs. Classroom ratio: max. 6 students - confined/boat dives ratio: max. 4 students per instructor and we start courses on demand. This means if just one guest is booked in for a special date, you will get a private course without additional costs (pick up and drop offs not included).
What you need to bring along: Lots of fun, a towel and your swim suit and please have a look at the required medical questionaire.(if there is any question you have to answer with a yes, we need the medical statement from a physician to give you a clearance for diving).
This course can be upgraded to the full PADI Open Water Diver at any PADI Dive Centre worldwide whenever you want.
