New PADI Open Water Divers

It's been another very busy week here at the Underwater Centre.   It's amazing to see all these very cold Europeans heading to the Seychelles for a little R &R... and of course lovely warm sunny days that you can only dream of back home!

There are so many small almost private beaches dotted all round Mahe

And it's great to see so many of you trying diving for the first time. This week it was Open Water students Phil and Andrew who stepped up to the challenge.

Phil and Andrew have spent the last few days completing their theory work and the exams.

If you are interested in learning to Dive please don't hesitate to contact us.  We are able to design our Open Water courses to suit your needs and time constraints.

There are two main options:

Option One: E-Learning- 270 Euro if pre-paid.
You complete the theory exercises, and knowledge reviews and on line exams prior to arriving in Seychelles.  This is a fantastic way to speed up the process and really focus on the practical diving.  E-Learning is an online PADI learning option, where you gain the benefit of getting most of the theory out of the way before you get here, and save some money in the process.
You just need to complete a 20 question quiz to re-enforce the theory already covered, and of course we go over any of the learning you are unsure of, you then can focus on the four dives, generally spaced over two days.

Option Two: Traditional Learning360 Euro if pre-paid
All theory and practical learning takes place in the dive centre, and is generally structured over 4 days

Please note-
*all equipment and any materials and dives required are included in the course cost
*E-Learner Students should bring the PADI Theory Completion Referral Paper with them
* All students need to bring a passport size photo for each PADI course completed

*PADI certification on completion of the course is an additional 20 Euro

Pre-paid rates only avalible for packages booked and paid for prior to arrival
