Courses

You will find here brief descriptions of all courses we provide, their prices and descriptions.

We offer both PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) and SSI (Scuba School International) certified courses. Both are the two most popular and respected certifiers worldwide and both adhere to the WRTC, World Recreational Scuba Training Council, standards.

There are no major differences between the education and trainings of both agencies, and their courses can be crossed over, i.e. a PADI Open Water certified diver is still recognized as such if he decides to continue his dive learning path with SSI, for instance.

Names can sometimes differ slightly across the two systems, like the PADI Open Water Diver course, which corresponds to the SSI Advanced Adventurer, for instance.

Each group their courses differently, yet all in all, courses from both cover the same areas.
