About the Activities
Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be an expert swimmer, a Navy SEAL or a triathlete to dive. Recreational diving is one of the safest sports around, and is suitable for everyone from the age of 10 to 65-plus. All you need is basic swimming capabilities, moderate fitness levels (ability to walk a kilometer or two without fatigue) and good health.

For those interested in learning to dive, we offer the Open Water Course.
The Open Water course consists of 3 sections:
- Academic development: Here, you learn the theory of diving. This is covered in a mix of video, self-study and instructor briefings
- Confined water training: here, you master the essential skills of scuba, starting from the simple (breathing underwater) and working your way up to complex (removing/replacing your equipment underwater)
- Open water dives: now you get a chance to apply everything that you have learned by actually diving. We do 4 dives in the open water, where you repeat some of the skills that you learned earlier, and where you also get a chance to dive, enjoy yourself and soak in the wonders of the underwater world.
At the successful completion of this course, you receive a certification card from PADI, NAUI or SSI.
A quick word on these agencies: these certification cards are universally accepted by dive operators worldwide, all are interchangeable (you can start with one and switch to another) and all allow you to rent equipment and dive anywhere, so regardless of which option you choose, you get a high-quality course.
Typically, the Open Water course lasts 4 full days. However, we recognize that different people learn at different speeds – besides, you are on vacation and may want to spread out your training. So, the time to certification can be more or less. Two things are for sure: we will not rush you, and we will not compromise on your training.
As with our diving, we believe in small groups and personalized attention for training. With our large staff of instructors, we are able to keep our classes small – usually 4:1 or better student:professional ratio – ensuring that you get all the personal attention that you need.
If you have any health-related concerns about learning to dive then you will have consult your doctor.
