It’s hard to imagine a more perfect destination than the Maldives if learning to scuba dive is part of your holiday plan. The warm, crystal clear waters with sandy, shallow lagoons is the perfect environment in which to take your first breaths underwater. Swimming-pool-like conditions await beginners but with the added bonus of beautiful fish joining you too!
There are a number of options available if, like us, you think learning to dive in the Maldives is too good an opportunity to miss:
PADI Open Water Diver Course
The most popular diving course in the world and your ticket to a world of adventure and fun. You’ll learn the theory in 5 Knowledge Development sessions, learn the basic skills in 5 confined water (lagoon) dives and put everything into practice, under the watchful eye of your instructor, during 4 dives on the reefs. Successful completion will mean you are certified to dive to a depth of 18 metres with a buddy.
*This course doesn’t need to dominate your entire holiday – you can complete the study parts online with the PADI eLearning system while still at home.
PADI Scuba Diver Course
If you want to get certified as a diver but are short of time and would rather split the course, this is a great compromise. You will complete the first 3 Knowledge Development sessions, 3 confined water dives and 2 open water dives at the reef to be certified as a PADI Scuba Diver. The certification will allow you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres accompanied by a PADI professional and can be credited to the PADI Open Water Diver course any time in the future.
*PADI eLearning system is available for home study, saving you precious time on your holiday.
PADI Discover Scuba Diving
This try-diving program is not a certification course and as such, there is no study required. Its aim is to simply introduce you to the incredible underwater world and allow you to experience the thrill of diving during this holiday.
