However, we suggest to have logged 10 dives in total before joining to really take the most of the course.
We also require our students to have dive in the last 6 months or to join our Refresher Course before.
As a PADI Advanced Diver, you can join a Boat Night Dive or Shore night, however we will not do one during the course. In summer, we will offer Night Dive every couple of week, it is free to join and a Divemaster/instructor will welcome and guide all Night Dive beginners.
Deep Dive and Navigation are mandatory to complete the course. We think the peak performance Buoyancy is a must do as it is a core skill of scuba diving. The Rescue Dive is an important dive as it gives you skills to save yourself and your buddy. You can choose an elective dives for the remaining one among Fish Id, Naturalist, Boat Dive and Photography/Videography. Any special question, let us know.
The E-learning has to be completed before the relevant dive. Each section is linked to one of the dive, you will be doing. They take around 30 to 45 minutes each to complete. You e-learning also contains many other dives specialty, you are welcome to go through it to learn more. You e-learning will still be available after the course for many years.
