PADI Scuba Diver

PADI Scuba Diver Image

Want to learn to dive, but short on time? If you can’t commit to the full PADI Open Water Diver course, our PADI Scuba Diver course is your best bet.

On a tight timetable, but itching to learn to dive? We know setting aside days to dive on holiday isn’t always easy – especially if you’re away with your family. That’s why we created our PADI Scuba Diver course. The two-day course covers all the diving theory basics, along with diving lessons. And once you’ve completed the course, you’ll be able to dive up to a maximum depth of 12 metres anywhere in the world, as long as you’re with a PADI professional.

The first stage of the PADI Scuba Diver course is split into three knowledge development sessions, where you’ll gen up on the theory side of things. Then, once you’ve had all your classroom-based lessons, it’s on to the practical side of things. You’ll do three confined training dives, and to complete your PADI Scuba Diver, you’ll do two open water dives from the shore, up to a maximum depth of 12 metres.

Once you’ve ticked the PADI Scuba Diver course off, you can continue to up your diving skills by signing up for a PADI Open Water Diver any time in the next 12 months. Just so you know, the course includes your tuition and all the scuba diving equipment you’ll need, but there are a few extras you’ll need to buy separately. There’s a course manual, which is required by PADI standards. You can buy this from Ocean College when you’re in Egypt. There’s also a certification fee, which again, you can buy with us once you’re here.

The sun shines in the Red Sea 365 days a year with virtually no rain.

Depending on the time of year, the thermometer hovers between 24°C and 39°C and the water temperature is 22°C to 26°C – so diving is great year-round.
