PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD)

Ever dreamed of being a fish in the ocean? PADI Discover Scuba Diving makes your dream come true.

Without any certification, the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program gives beginners the opportunity to explore the best shallow dive sites. In all, after a little practice, you are ready to take the plunge and go for 2 dives from the boat.

To start with, your dedicated PADI instructor teaches you the basics of scuba diving theory and skills within one afternoon. Due to perfectly calm conditions and shallow water, this training session is great for mastering the techniques and getting comfortable in water.

After a good night’s sleep, you then board our boat for a 2-dive trip safely monitored by your PADI instructor. You venture down to a maximum of 12 meters on some of our breath-taking dive sites.
Now, this is the time to keep your eyes wide-open to the ocean’s beauty.

Altogether, Discover Scuba Diving is perfect for beginner divers to enjoy their first experience underwater and admire the magnificient marine life hidden beneath the waves.

Depending on your availability, Eco2 Diving may arrange DSDs on a morning or afternoon only. Rather than 2 boat dives, you explore our world-class muck dive from shore.

Open Water Diver – PADI Course

Excited to explore the blue planet? The PADI Open Water Diver course shows you the way.

Within 4 days, the PADI Open Water Diver certification course teaches you to dive independantly with a buddy to a maximum depth of 18 meters.
Moreover, your PADI certifcation is recognised worldwide and valid for life. This course is considered as the 1st level of the PADI ladder.

At first, you start by reviewing the scuba diving theory. This can either be completed online before your arrival or on the premises in the Eco2 Diving classroom. However, most people prefer the online solution to make the most out of their holiday.

Then, once the theory is finished, you are ready for your training sessions. The 5 confined open water sessions are performed over day 1 and 2 in perfectly calm water. As a result, you easily master all required skills and ensure you are fit for the ocean.

At last, the next 2 days are spent completing your 4 open water dives. In the morning of day 3, you dive our world-class muck dive with ideal conditions. The astonishing marine life keeps you entertained once a few skills have been accomplished. In the morning of day 4, you embark on our boat for a  2-dive trip to experience some of our incredible local dives.
Finally, you are now a certified PADI Open Water Diver.

Briefly, the PADI Open Water Diver certification is the first step for beginner divers to dive the world and explore our big blue planet.

Below 15 years-old, you may qualify for a Junior Open Water Diver with specific adaptations.
