Frequently Asked Questions about the PADI Scuba Diver Course

Yes, of our scuba diver course includes e-learning so you can complete all the theory online before you arrive in Lanzarote. Saving you half a day in the classroom! Completing this option means when you arrive in Lanzarote you can jump straight underwater. 

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.

Included in all of our PADI Scuba course packages are:

  • PADI Digital Manual
  • Diving Insurance for the course duration
  • Full equipment hire
  • Full instruction and certified PADI instructor
  • PADI Digital Certification Card
  • Logbook
  • Small class sizes

You just need to bring:

  •  Swimwear
  • Towel
  • Change of clothes for afterwards
  • PADI E-record showing the theory has been completed

We will break for lunch for at least 1 hour. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and supermarkets where you can get something to eat. 

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 regular swimming. There is however a swimming test to make sure you are happy in the water. You need to be able to float/tread water for 10 minutes. In general you should be comfortable in the water and you should be fit and healthy with no medical issues.

For 1 dive you must wait at least 12 hours before flying. For multiple dives you must wait at least 18 hours before flying.

PADI Scuba Certification Lanzarote | Manta diving

What a truly awesome experience! Exceeded all my expectations. I have just completed my Scuba Diver PADI course with instructor Ariel. He had the patience that gave me confidence to succeed in all tasks however long they took. From my online e-learning package to my course instruction everything was organised to perfection. I can not praise the staff enough. Brilliant experience, highly recommended, 5 stars.
