Training & diving courses
International Aquanautic Club (i.a.c.), CMAS, PADI and SSI diving courses are continually on offer. The diving courses take place in small groups (1 diving instructor – 2 participants), thus avoiding stress and ensuring effective training to meet your individual needs.
The course commences with an introductory dive in the shallow waters of the Lagoon (approx. 1.5 metres). Under the wing of a professional instructor the students have plenty of time (approx.1 hour) to get used to the water and learn underwater breathing. At the end of this try dive the students are divided up into groups for the next day.
The actual training course runs over three days. The diving students are in the water morning and afternoon. Professional diving instructors will be teaching them in groups of two. The last of the six training sessions (and the highlight of the course for most students) includes diving from a boat.
The theory (about 6 hours in total) will be taught over the three days between 17:30 and 19:30. After successfully completing the final theory examination, the diving student will be presented with an internationally recognised certificate (Open Water Diver – SSI or International Aquanautic Club). Alternatively, you may choose the PADI training programme (PADI Open Water Diver).
The diving school offers advanced courses up to CMAS gold and SSI/PADI Divemaster level. We can train and certify you in most specialized diving courses, all of them after the regulations of CMAS, i.a.c., PADI and SSI.
