DIVING COURSES

Scuba Review & 1 Dive

The Scuba Review is aimed at qualified divers who haven’t been diving in some time. First, we will give you a refresher on your scuba skills in our confined freshwater pool. Once we’ve made sure you’re comfortable and confident, we’ll then take you out to the ocean for an open water sea dive to get you back into your scuba groove. Price includes equipment.

Discover Scuba Diving

This is a great first step into the diving and underwater realm - especially if you’re a little unsure about what diving is really like. We start with a pool session and finish with a controlled dive to our house reef, Clownfish, to give you your first glimpse of the underwater world. If you fall in love with scuba diving and want to continue, don’t despair: this introduction to scuba counts towards the completion of your PADI Open Water certification. Price includes equipment and Discover Scuba certification and card.

Scuba Diver

Your Scuba Diver qualification is half of the Open Water certificate. Once completed, you’ll be able to dive to a max of 12m with a qualified instructor. The course consists of three video and knowledge development sessions, three pool sessions and two sea dives to Clownfish: our house reef. Prices include dive equipment, manual and internet certification with PADI (you will receive your card in the post).

Open Water Certificate

The Open Water certificate is your first real step onto the scuba diving ladder (and, when you start, we’re sure you’ll want to climb up many more rungs too). Once you’ve completed your Open Water, you’ll be qualified to dive to a depth of 18m. It usually takes around four days to complete, during which you’ll complete five video and knowledge review sessions, five pool sessions and four sea dives (two at our house reef, Clownfish, and two at other dive sites). Once you’re out in the ocean on these open water dives, you might even see and swim with manta rays and whale sharks. The final hurdle is the small matter of a 200m swim and final exam which have to be completed to gain your qualification. All course material, registration and equipment is provided as part of the course.

Advanced Open Water

Getting your Advanced is great because it gives you a qualifying depth of 30m which can open up a huge range of dive destinations around the world. You’ll need to allow yourself three to four days to get the most from this course and to see what an amazing dive destination Tofo is. You’ll complete five individual dives in all. Two of these - the Navigation and Deep dives - are mandatory and you can choose from over 15 options for the remaining three (which include video, photography, drift, night, boat, fish ID dives and more). All course material, online PADI registration and equipment are included in the price.

Rescue Diver Certificate

By now you’re an avid diver and the diving world is starting to become a little more addictive. This course is split over four to five days and gives you an in-depth look at the more serious matters of life support. Completing this course gives you a different perspective on diving because you’ll move away from focusing solely on yourself and start paying more attention to other people in the water. The Rescue Diver is your first real step towards becoming a PADI Professional and is by far one of the most fun and rewarding courses to complete. Some of the rescue scenarios you’ll take part in can turn the worst foes into the best of friends. All course material, registration and equipment is included in the price.

NB: to become certified as a Rescue Diver you need a current, in-date First Aid qualification taken within the last two years. If you don’t have that, never fear: you can complete a First Aid course here at the dive centre. This is at an additional cost but, again, again all course material, registration & equipment is included.
 

Dive Master

Your first step towards professional diving, the Dive Master qualification gives you extensive knowledge of the scuba diving industry as a whole. Here at Peri-Peri Divers, we only run Dive Master Intern Schemes over a three month period. For more details, please give us a call or drop us an email.
