Learn to Dive

Begin your adventure under the waves and book a PADI diving course

Sharks Bay Umbi is a great place to learn to dive. Our house-reef has ideal conditions for taking a PADI diving course and, as the dive centre is on the beach, it is just a short walk before you are introduced to the wonders of the underwater world.

We keep our PADI diving courses small with a maximum of 5 student divers per instructor. The dive centre has a fully equipped classroom but often the instructors like to teach outside so you can work on your sun-tan at the same time! If you have never enjoyed the wonders of diving before then a Discover Scuba Diving experience is your starting point, it is likely to be one of the highlights of your holiday and can be made on our house-reef or from the boat. So why not start your adventure now and book one of these PADI learn to dive course?

Complete diving courses in fewer days to give yourself more time to enjoy your diving in the warm waters of the Red Sea.

All you need to enroll in the PADI eLearning is access to a computer so you can complete the theory sessions from home. The PADI eLearning system means that you can study beforehand for the PADI Open Water, PADI Advanced, PADI Nitrox, PADI Rescue and even the PADI Divemaster course before you even begin your holiday. Once you have enrolled you will have access to the online manuals, knowledge reviews and quizzes and if you need any further help you can ask us directly and also join online discussions to interact with other students. When you register for a PADI eLearning course the price you pay covers your online digital manual and your certification fee with the exception of the Divemaster course, for which the certification fee is payable directly to PADI. We receive notification from PADI when you have completed the online section of your diving courses and we can then book you in to complete your course with us. The full course price applies once you are here but of course you will already have paid for your digital manual and the certification fee (except Divemaster students).
