PADI Dive Courses

Our experienced Instructors teach PADI dive courses from beginner to professional level. We offer courses in English, Swedish and Finnish, and course materials are available in several different languages. No previous dive training or experience is needed for Discover Scuba Diving or Open Water Diver course.

We teach in small groups and the course schedule will be planned together with you to perfectly fit into your holiday plans. All course dives take place in natural coral reef environment in the marine park. You can enjoy the tropical marine life starting from your very first shallow water diving experience!

If you like it, Discover Scuba Diving is the first step towards a scuba certification.

EFR - Emergency First Responder 1 day

The Basic CPR and First Aid course is suitable for anyone interested in helping others, children, adults, divers or non-divers. This course is often done together with the PADI Rescue Diver Course since it is one of the requirements for becoming a Rescue Diver.
