Take the first step in getting your scuba diving certification with the PADI Scuba Diver course. Make your holiday extra special and learn to scuba dive in the deep blue sea around Malta's coastline. We will help you develop a set of basic scuba diving skills while exploring the beauty of the aquatic wildlife and the mysteries of sunken shipwrecks.
Goal of the course
The PADI Scuba Diver certification qualifies you to dive alongside a PADI-trained instructor to a depth of 12 metres. It also allows you to get air fills at any PADI-affiliated dive centre and to take part in diving activities that are properly supervised. As part of the course you will learn how to control your buoyancy, how to ascend and descend, how to streamline your underwater movement, and how to stay safe.
Meeting & Preparation
In order to take part in the course, we ask you to complete the e-learning programme before your scheduled start date. We will send you all the access details once you've booked, so you can start the theory course from home. If you happen to be staying at a hotel or other form of accommodation within our pick-up zone, we're happy to have you driven straight to our dive centre without extra cost. When you arrive, we will check you in and have you fill out the PADI medical statement. Once we're done with all the administrative necessities, we will equip you with your scuba gear and you're good to go for your first practical diving session in the pool.
