PADI Scuba Diver

Course description

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.

PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as supervised.
  • Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification.
  • What will you learn?

    The PADI Scuba Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development to understand basic principles of scuba diving.
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills – just the first 3 of 5 dives of the Open Water Diver course
  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore – just 2 of 4 dives of the Open Water Diver course.
  • What equipment will you use?

    In the PADI Scuba Diver course at Blue Yard Hub, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon the time of year. All equipment will be made available to you at no extra cost.
