PADI SCUBA DIVER

The Padi Scuba Diver course is a subset of the Padi Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the Padi Scuba Diver rating might be right for you, particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.  You will be certified to dive all around the world under the direct supervision of a Padi Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres, obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment, participate in dive activities (as long as properly supervised) and continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain speciality diver courses.

WHO CAN SIGN UP

To enrol in a Padi Scuba Diver course (or Junior Scuba Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required, but you can try it first through the Padi Discover Scuba Diving program.

Student learn how to dive with the Padi Scuba Diver Course in Lembongan

WHAT IS INVOLVED

The PADI Scuba Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development to understand basic principles of scuba diving – just the first three of five sections of the Open Water Diver course.
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills – just the first three of five dives of the Open Water Diver course
  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore – just two of four dives of the Open Water Diver course.

 

For you to gain your certification you will need to spend 2 days with us at the beautiful and relaxed island of Lembongan. On the first day you will begin by watching a DVD that covers the three sections of the course while completing some quick and easy questions. You can actually save some time by completing this section at home with the Scuba Diver Online – PADI’s eLearning option.

Still on day 1, after our Professional Padi Instructor has reviewed with you the knowledge development sections, you are ready to start with some practical applications in the swimming pool. You learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank, as well as practising dive skills and safety procedures.

The second day is the most exciting one! You get to go for 2 dives in the beautiful seas of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida. We will take you to suitable places, sheltered from strong currents, where you can gain your confidence and practice some of the skills you have learned in the confined waters. You will finally see what all the excitement is about and become a part of the magnificent underwater world surrounded by coloured fishes and pristine coral reef – contact us for more details.

As you surface from the last dive from your Scuba Diver Course the Legend Diving Team will be proud to say:

“Congratulations, you are now a Scuba Diver!”
