YOUR SCHEDULE

Your course can start anytime you want with PADI eLearning.

Please finish all theory and the final exam in your preferred language before arrival.

 

Day 1: Arrival - Meet us at 5pm

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 remaining course fee.

 

Day 2: 8am – 4pm - full day on the boat

Confined Water Training I + II + III

Open Water Dive I + II (shallow dives)

 

Day 3: 8am – 4pm - full day on board

Confined Water Training IV + V;

Open Water Dive III + IV (max depth: 18meters)

 

You will instantly get certified as PADI Open Water Diver and receive a worldwide valid eCertificate.

 


HOW DOES E-LEARNING WORK?

 PADI eLearning makes it easy to fit scuba lessons into a busy schedule. Learn about scuba diving principles and terminology whenever, wherever it's convenient for you.

 

It's your course on your time. Study offline, or online using a computer or mobile device. Connect with your instructor whenever you have a question.

It will take you around 10hours to finish all dive theory and the final exam prior your arrival in El Nido.

Then Tabanka Divers take over: we review the most important sections and focus on the best part: your dive training! 

   

TRAVELLING WITH FRIENDS?

 

If you have friends who are certified divers you can be on the same boat.

Also 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 out more with our 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.
