Training & diving courses

Introductory Dives

In addition to our daily diving, we offer a wide range of courses to get you started or to further your diving education. From Open-Water to Instructor courses we offer all levels of certification using the internationally recognised standards of SSI, Internatinatial Aquanautic Club (IAC), CMAS or PADI.

Dive Courses

Intro-dives: If you would like to see what diving is all about, then we offer introductory dives of 30 minutes. In a maximum depth of 5 metres of water, you will experience the beauty of the underwater world. This service is offered on an individual basis with a diving instructor.

Open Water: A four day course with a maximum of six people in a group. At the end of the course you will be able to enjoy recreational diving with confidence and skill. The course is divided into theory classes and practical exercises finishing with four open water dives – two of which will be from the boat on your last day. After completing the course successfully, you will receive your Open Water Diver certification.

Further Education: If you want to take your education further we also offer advanced courses up to SSI Divecon, CMAS*** (gold) and/or PADI Divemaster as well as specialty courses including Nitrox. All specialty courses will be trained and certified after the regulations of SSI, IAC and PADI.

In addition, we offer SSI and CMAS instructor courses.

This is a shore dive with a maximum depth of 2m. At the age of 10 children can do an introductory dive – either from the boat or from the shore – the maximum depth for this dive is 6m.

The minimum age to participate in the Junior Scuba Diver or the Junior Open Water Diver course is 10. At the age of 15, this certification can be exchanged for the Open Water Diver certification.
