Courses for Beginners

It may be because you have a particular bond with the water, or you are a nature lover, or you have a sense of adventure or it may be because you have simply always had a desire to find out what is to be seen below the surface, we are driven to it.

PADI Discover Scuba Diving


Duration: 1 day depending on the option

From 10 years old

Maximum depth: 12 metres


Are you not yet convinced that diving is fun? Everybody, kids and adults of all ages, can explore the fascinating underwater world of the Red Sea, hand in hand with one of our experienced diving instructors without engaging straight away on a complete Open Water Diver course.


A small introduction to the diving theory, a few exercises in a confined water environment and then you can dive. This experience can be credited towards your beginner’s course if you decide to go on. You can choose between 3 options: 1 dive from the shore or 1 dive from the boat or 2 dives from the boat.



PADI Scuba Diver


Duration: 2 days

From 10 years old

Maximum depth: 12 metres


The initial beginner's certification, which will later allow you to dive with a diving professional (instructor or Divemaster) to a maximum depth of 12 metres. In only 2 days you learn the most important diving skills, more than half of the of the Open Water Diver theory and complete your training with two exciting open water dives.



PADI Open Water Diver


Duration: 3 or 4 days depending on the option

From 10 years old

Maximum depth: 18 metres


The most recognized beginner's certification worldwide that allows you to dive independently with your buddy to a recommended maximum depth of 18 meters. On top of what you learn during the Scuba Diver Course, you actually learn to plan your own dives and a few more diving skills and spend an amazing extra day on the boat for your final two open water dives.


Your best start is to order your Open Water Diver Student Kit (manual, Dive Table and Course DVD) with your course reservation. We can send it directly to your home from one of our European representatives. This way you can start reading at home. If you choose the fast track option of the Open Water Diver Course, it is mandatory that you complete reading your manual and fill in your Knowledge Reviews prior to the start of your course. You will then only need to spend a very little amount of time in our spacious air conditioned classrooms and can use your precious holiday time for your practical diving experiences.


We offer 3 options for this course:

  • Regular Course - 4 days

  • Fast Track Course - 3 days

  • Private Course - 4 days

You can as well combine this course with the PADI Enriched Air Diver course. Open Water Diver course students who have completed Open Water Dives 1, 2 and 3 may complete Enriched Air Training Dive 1 together with Open Water Dive 4.
