1. "eLearning' is online based, no initial download is needed. It works with every browser as long as you got a solid internet connection. Not ideal if you are travelling in remote areas.

 

2. "Touch" works offline. It is made for Apple iPad only and the initial download is 1,7gb.

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.
