PADI Scuba Diver

Short on time and long on the urge to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you



Red Sea Red Fan Coral
This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a sub course of the Open Water Course, it covers only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver. This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal.




You need to be able to swim to learn to scuba dive:

There will be a water stamina test on the first day at the dive centre comprising of a 200m swim and 10 minute float/water-tread, please note that you need to complete this swim and float comfortably.

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres / 40 feet
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision
  • Continue their dive training, complete the PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses
