We care about quality training. Our instructors are experienced divers and are true professionals with many years of experience. The resort operates in accordance with all PADI guidelines and requirements.
Basic courses and programs
For those who want to try diving, but do not have certificates
An option for non-certified individuals is to try dives with an instructor, so-called "trial dives". You will be severely limited in depth and will dive under the supervision of an instructor.
Discover Scuba Dive (DSD) program
This is a program where you are briefly introduced to scuba diving and how to use it, then demonstrated the most basic skills in the pool, followed by a dive on the coral reef with an instructor.
The whole thing takes about two to three hours from start to finish.
Since the DSD program is part of the Open Water Diver course, on completion of the dive you will receive a document confirming that you have successfully completed 1/5th of the course, and you may continue training at any dive center, counting on a discount on the cost of the main course.
Scuba diver (2 days) (Course consists of 3 theoretical modules, closed water skills training + 2 open water dives)
The PADI Scuba Diver course is part of the Open Water Diver course. Divers at the PADI Scuba Diver level have completed the training and skills necessary to dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters under the direct supervision of a Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or PADI Instructor. Divers who achieve the PADI Scuba Diver certification have a more thorough theoretical background and more advanced scuba diving skills than Discover Scuba Divers, but they cannot yet dive on their own.
The minimum age is 10 years old.
Open Water Diver (3-5 days) Course consists of 5 units of theory course, 5 closed water training modules and 4 open water dives.
Learning to dive is not as hard as you might think, but like any activity it takes effort. The PADI Open Water Diver course takes you through three phases: theory training, confined water dives and open water dives.
The theory course introduces you to the effects of the aquatic environment on the human body and how to stay in it. You will learn how to select the correct equipment and what to look for when you plan to dive and many other valuable information for recreational diving. You can familiarize yourself with the theory by reading the PADI Open Water Diver textbook or by watching specialized instructional videos. If you have any questions, your instructor will explain all the difficult points. At the end of the course, you will take a theory exam.
During confined water dives you will learn basic scuba diving skills in a pool or confined water environment with similar conditions. You learn everything you need to make safe recreational dives, from how to set up and adjust your equipment to how to clean your mask underwater. You'll also practice emergency situations such as breathing with a buddy from the same regulator, surfacing in an emergency, and what to do if you're out of air. By the end of your confined water training, you'll have reached the level of training you need to dive in open water.
After you have completed your confined water dives, you will continue your training on four open water dives with your PADI instructor. As part of these dives, you will finally be able to understand what real underwater adventure is all about.

The hands-on course is a clearly structured class that simulates different scenarios and real-world training dives with students. These classes give you experience as an assistant instructor or diver supervising open water dives and as a guide in the underwater world.
In the theory course you will study basic topics such as underwater physiology, diving philosophy, scuba diving skills, observing students in the course, supervising, contingency plans, making an underwater terrain plan and so on.

Specialized diving courses
PADI specialty courses are highly focused specialties that allow you to make your dives more exciting and varied, and to learn new skills and abilities that are not taught in general courses. Here are some of the specialties you can take at our dive center:
Enriched Air Diver. Enriched air diving allows you to increase your no-decompression dive time allowing you to spend more time underwater. The PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty course will allow you to get the most out of your dives. Entry requirement: You must be a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another certifying organization).
Deep Diver The Deep Diver Specialty course gives you the opportunity to dive to depths of up to 40 meters and see things that many would only dream of. Diving deeper, you will see many differences from conventional diving, learn to recognize the symptoms of nitrogen narcosis onset and gain invaluable experience. Entry requirements: You must be at least the Adventure Diver level (or equivalent of another certifying organization); minimum age is 15.
Wreck Diver When you look at a wreck, the past meets the present. Just imagine: masts, portholes, cabins, decks, where people used to be... Whatever the reason for a sunken object, be it a ship, an airplane, a car, it irresistibly attracts divers with its unique history. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course gives you the skills and knowledge you need to dive wrecks. Entry requirements: Must be at least Adventure Diver level (or equivalent from another certifying body) and the minimum age is 15.
Peak Performance Buoyancy Buoyancy skills distinguish between simple divers and big-name divers. In Peak Performance Buoyancy you'll learn how to find the right amount of weights for optimum balance and how to dive and surface as if you'd just thought of it and it happened. By mastering the art of achieving the most streamlined and perfectly neutral buoyancy, you will be able to move in the water easily, efficiently and gracefully. Prerequisites: You must be a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another certifying organization). The minimum age is 10 years old.
Night Diver One of the most interesting specialties in diving in which the student learns to dive at night. At night, you can see things that are not available to the eye during the day. Nocturnal predators come out to hunt, and darkness lovers emerge and leave their hiding places. Underwater inhabitants familiar to us from diving during the day hide, and sometimes it is possible to see how they sleep.
Night Diver course is open to divers over 12 years old with at least a PADI OWD certificate or equivalent.
Drift diver This course is designed to teach you how to dive in the current conditions. Currents can cause you a lot of problems, but you cannot dive in the sea and always avoid the currents. By taking the Drift Diver course you will learn how to use the currents to your advantage. When properly planned and conducted, the currents become an indispensable aid and make the dive much easier.
The minimum age for starting the course is 12 years old. Prior training - PADI Open Water level or equivalent.
