You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. We have a number of Learn to Dive Holidays and itineraries that are suitable for beginners, however if you just want to talk it through contact us to discuss your diving adventure.
