Can I complete the theory before I get to Lanzarote?

All our packages include online theory so you can get started before you arrive in Lanzarote. You just need a tablet or computer.

The Bronze package includes the digital manual, so you can start reading the manual before you arrive but you complete the video and quizzes in the classroom when you arrive in Lanzarote.

The Silver and Gold packages include the PADI Touch. Allowing you to complete all the theory before you arrive. Saving you half a day in the classroom! Completing this option means when you arrive in Lanzarote you can jump straight underwater. You can complete the water work for the PADI Scuba Diver course in only 1 day!

What's do I do on the dives?

Confined Dive:

We complete 3 confined water dives in the shallow water of Playa Chica bay. During these dives you will learn a series of diving skills such as clearing water from your mask, buoyancy control & recovering your regulator. You also practice some emergency skills, like sharing air (just in case). By the time we’re done, you’re ready to hit the ocean with a splash!

Open Water Dives:

After your confined water fun, you will make 3 open water dives (Note: the course only requires 2 open water dives, we throw in 1 more dive for free!) When we say “open water”, we mean the beautiful blue ocean! You start shallow and gradually go deeper. The maximum depth in the course is 12 meters. Now you can experience real underwater adventures! We explore some of the amazing dive sites from Playa Chica.

I'm not a great swimmer. Can I still learn to dive?

Yes! As scuba divers we wear fins and a BCD (a jacket which you can fill with air), so there’s not much need for normal swimming. There is however a swimming test to make sure you are happy in the water. You need to be able to float for 10 minutes. In general you should be comfortable in the water and you should be fit and healthy with no medical issues.
