The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the Padi Open Water Diver Course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you ̶ particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to: • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet. • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised. • Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.
Your VIP course takes 2 days plus 2 fun dives following in all. It includes knowledge development and pool training as well as training in the open water with 2 open water training dives. You will get your PADI Scuba Diver student kit and receive a brief explanation of how to use it.Your instructor will help you to close your knowledge gaps and answer all the questions you might have from your self study by using a video and lesson guides. The physical training will occur in a swimming pool. Your instructor will explain and slowly demonstrate each and every skill for you and give you enough time to practice. You will gain confidence in short time.Next, it is on to training in the open water. During the course you will participate in 2 open water training dives which will last 35-45 minutes each. The first dive does not include any formal skills and will help you to acclimate to the new environment. During the VIP complementary dives you will apply the skills you have already mastered in the swimming pool to open water conditions. All your Scuba Diver open water dives are conducted by boat. Your captain and instructor will take you out to the closeby coral reefs, where you will also enjoy the tropical fish and marine life.
