READY TO START YOUR PADI COURSE?
PADI eLearning takes 14 hours in total. Pause and continue anytime, anywhere. Do your final exam online in advance. In El Nido we review the most important sections and focus on the best part: DIVING! Some technical information for eLearning: there are 3 options to study...
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.
3. As a back up you can download a pdf-file of the manual into your PADI APP. In case of no internet at least you can continue reading like in a book.
TRAVELLING WITH FRIENDS?
If you have friends who are certified divers they will be on the same boat. We have a special Fun Dive Packages. It is also possible that your friend join parts of your course. Non-Divers can join our trips for 1500p.
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.
Please check our Terms and conditions.
