Becoming a certified diver in only two days may seem impossible but it's not! In fact, the PADI Scuba Diver course is a shortened version of the PADI Open Water Diver course, which allows divers with less time on their hands to learn all the necessary basics of diving.

Goal of the course
During the PADI Scuba Diver course, you'll learn basic dive theory, the required dive skills for this certificate and how to properly handle your equipment. With the PADI Scuba Diver certificate, you'll be able to join professionally guided dives, diving up to 12m.

Meeting & Preparation
Depending on whether you'll use our hotel pick-up service or not, we'll either meet at your hotel between 08:10 and 08:45 a.m. or at 08:10 a.m. at our school's office in Rethymno. We'll then all be at 9 a.m. at our beach base at Kalivaki beach. Once there, your instructor will give you a short briefing on the basics of diving, the safety rules and the equipment used. After the briefing, you'll be ready for your diving adventure!

If you wish to use our pick-up service, simply let us know beforehand and we'll gladly come pick you up from your hotel.
