Meet your PADI Instructor and other students at Tabanka Divers for a review on theory, check your equipment and sign a medical questionnaire. It takes 1 hour only but it is mandatory to do it the day before diving. This is also the moment to pay the course fee.

WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED?

TRAVELLING WITH FRIENDS?
If you have friends who are certified divers they will be on the same boat. We have a special deal for friends: 6 Fun Dives for only 8200p. It is also possible that your friends join parts of your course. Non-Divers can join our trips for 1200p.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW
We provide all you need for a safe and unforgettable experience. Beside being 12 years or older, being a motivated student and a reasonable good swimmer you only have to bring swim-wear, sun- and rain-protection. Water, snacks and lunch on board are provided. Let us know if you have a special diet or allergies. Don't bring valuables to a dive boat. Diving with contact lenses is no problem. Find more FAQs here.
To check your fitness for diving you have to fill out a medical questionnaire. This will indicate if you have to see a physician prior taking a recreational scuba diving course.
No surprise: weather can effect our schedule. Do not make too tight travel plans: an extra day or two after your OW course can be very useful. Also keep in mind that you can not take a commercial flight for at least 18hours after your last dive. Flying prior diving is no risk.
If we have to cancel a trip due to weather conditions we will grant a refund accordingly. For more details see our Terms and conditions.
