DIVE THEORY

There is some dive theory involved prior to going into the water. It covers some basic scuba diving theory but is designed to be progressive and gives you a good grounding in understanding the dive environment, equipment and physical aspects of diving including important safety rules.There are two routes to completing the theory. The first is to complete the theory with our instructor at the dive centre. This usually takes one day and is split into five modules.The second method is to complete the theory online with PADI’s Online Training program. This is designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. Many people chose this option as the theory can be done in your own time when it suits and you are not ‘stuck’ in a classroom for a day. Within the online training method there are also different options available to you. From experience we find that those that complete the theory online have a far better understanding of the theory at the conclusion as they have learnt at their own pace.

We would recommend this as the best option for completing your dive theory.

EQUIPMENT

In the course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD) and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperate or cold water.

POOL TRAINING/CONFINED WATER

When you’re fitted with your scuba equipment you can begin your pool training. Your instructor will put into practice the techniques you learned in the academics program. Your training dives will be logged and approved by your instructor before you move on to open water.

OPEN WATER TRAINING – OPEN WATER DIVES

Get ready to experience everything you’ve learned with the freedom of open water. As soon as your open water training dives are approved by your instructor you will be a certified diver. PADI Open Water Diver certification is recognized worldwide so your diving experiences will be limitless. Your certification will provide you the passport to dive anywhere in the world and remains valid for life!

We understand that people may have busy schedules or want to spread the cost of the course over a few weeks or months.

As our aim is to help as many people as possible to become divers who will in turn become advocates and protectors of our oceans we created the Flexi Open Water Diver Course. This is the PADI Open Water Diver Course with all the same training standards and procedures. But we have created a tailored plan to help you spread the cost or spread it over a longer period if your timetable is busy.

We have separated the Open Water Course into four distinct modules. This allows you to pay for each module as and when you are able, provided the final open water training dive is completed within 1 year of the theory final exam. Don’t worry, the total payment plan price is the same as completing the course in 4 days. No hidden extras or additions. There is no credit charges as you just pay as you Go.

For example:

Make payment 1 – Open Water Course Diver Theory (Online or Classroom)

Make payment 2 – Pool Training Session @ Twin Rock Beach Resort (1 Day)

Make payment 3 – Open Water Training Dives 1 & 2 (1 Day)

Make Payment 4 – Open Water Training Dives 3 & 4 (1 Day)

Upon completion of Dive 4 you will be certified and receive your prestigious PADI Open Water Diver certification card.
