PADI Scuba Diver Course
PADI Certification Fee € 35
PADI Scuba Diver Manual € 40
The PADI Scuba Diver course is ideal for children between the ages of 10 – 12 years and is also perfect for people who do not have enough time to complete the full PADI Open Water Course as they have too many other things planned during their time in Sharm el Sheikh.
Once you have achieved your PADI certification you will be able to dive anywhere in the world under the direct supervision of a PADI professional up to a maximum depth of 12 metres.
The course begins in the classroom where you will watch the training DVD to introduce you to Scuba equipment, diving knowledge and the underwater skills that you will require for safe and enjoyable diving. Once completed you can finish your knowledge reviews in the open air at the dive centre with your Sharks Bay Umbi diving instructor. In total you will complete three classroom sessions, three dive skill sessions (confined) and two full dives (open water) here on our house reef in the Red Sea.
One of great things about this course is that on your next holiday you only need to complete a little more diving theory, two dive skill sessions and two open water dives to upgrade your certification from PADI SCUBA Diver to become a full PADI Open Water Diver.
