International Aquanautic Club (IAC), CMAS, PADI
The course begins with an introductory dive in the shallow waters of the lagoon (approx 1.5 metres). During the (approx.) 1 hour try dive, students have plenty of time to get used to the wet element and “underwater breathing”, always under the watchful eye of our experts. The actual training course is split up over three days. The students are in the water mornings and afternoons. They will be introduced to the basics of diving in groups of two by professional dive instructors.The last of the six training sessions will include starting out from a boat.
The theory (about 6 hours in total) will be taught over the three days between 17:30 and 19:30. After successfully completing the final theory examination, the diving student will be presented with an internationally recognised certificate (Open Water Diver – SSI and International Aquanautic Club). Alternatively, you may choose the PADI training programme (PADI Open Water Diver).
The diving school offers advanced courses up to CMAS gold and SSI/PADI Divemaster level. We can train and certify you in most specialized diving courses, all of them after the regulations of CMAS, IAC, PADI and SSI.
