PADI Training

Try Diving Half Day / 2 Dives.

Discover Scuba Diving couldnt be easier! After a short training video our multi lingual PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) Instructors will explain to you the basics of the sport, covering the equipment you will use, safety procedures, how to correctly interact with aquatic life and fully brief you on the basic techniques you will practice in the ocean. The sensation of breathing underwater alone leaves many hooked after their first training dive. The first of the two dives in the program is to familiarize yourself with your brand new world and the equipment you are using to visit it. At a shallow, sheltered training site your instructor will supervise you closely for a 20 to 30 minute training dive, helping you to feel comfortable underwater, teaching you the basic diving techniques and leaving you feeling ready to head on your first dive in deeper water. Snacks and refreshments will then be served on a surface break of 30 to 40 minutes before gearing up for your second dive and getting ready to go a little deeper.

You are now ready to explore the wonders of the ocean, again closely supervised by one of our PADI professionals you will dive down to a maximum depth of 12 metres at one of our many spots around Santorini.Octopus, lobster, crabs, eels and a variety of fish life await although you may find the underwater topography of Santorinis volcanic shoreline alone enough to leave you wanting more! Upon completing your dives you will receive a certificate signed by your instructor which can be used as credit should you wish you to continue with your dive training and get certified with the PADI Open Water Diver course anywhere in the world. 9.00am 14.00, snacks and refreshments provided, Equipment and professional tuition provided.
