Introduction to Scuba Diving (Discover Scuba Diving) at the Marine Reserve. By boat.

The first contact with scuba diving takes place at the swimming pool, so that you can start feeling comfortable underwater, learn how to move and get used to breathing through your diving regulator. Once we finish at the swimming pool, you will already know if you like scuba diving or not, and the most common answer is: I love it!

But be careful… scuba diving can be very addictive!

Your next step is diving in the sea, up to a depth of 12 metres. That is where real fun starts: octopuses, moray eels, etc.

You are NOT a certified diver yet, but you are already diving, always under the supervision of one of our instructors. If you like the feeling, then go a bit further and enter the underwater world with our diving courses.

You will love it!

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you

more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.


Tec 40

The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving. It’s a great place to start because it’s the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Diver course and bridges the gap between no stop diving and full technical deep decompression diving. You gain experience and begin building the knowledge and skills you need to continue your tec diver training. You will qualify to make limited decompression dives to 40 metres/130 feet.

To enroll in the Tec 40 course, you must be:

  • A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
  • A PADI Enriched Air Diver with at least 10 dives using enriched air deeper than 18 metres/60 feet
  • A PADI Deep Diver or proof of at least 10 dives to 30 metres/100 feet
  • At least 18 years old and have a minimum of 30 logged dives

You also need to have a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
Note that qualifying certifications from other diver training organizations may apply – ask your PADI Tec Deep Instructor.


Having scuba tanks on your back isn’t a requirement for exploring the underwater world. Many scuba divers have discovered the joy of mounting cylinders on their sides. Sidemount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options. Plus, you don’t have to walk with heavy cylinders on your back – just enter the water, clip them on and go. Sound interesting? Sign up for the PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty course.

If you’re a PADI Open Water Diver who is at least 15 years old, you can enroll in a PADI Sidemount Diver course.
