Here, you can not only learn to dive, and attend a course in which you'll learn all the basic knowledge and skills of diving, but also become a certified diver! So don't miss this diving experience, pack your things and off you go to the beautiful island of Hvar! We offer you the best conditions for a perfect diving adventure.

The course consists of three phases: knowledge development (here you can choose whether you prefer to learn on your own with e-learning materials or whether you prefer classroom instruction), 4 practice dives in shallow water and 4 open water dives in the sea. Once you'll have learned the basics of scuba diving, completed all dives and passed the written exam, you'll receive your PADI Open Water Diver certificate.
- Kick-off:
In order for us to be able to offer you a perfect diving experience, we ask especially our young divers to come visit us the day before the course. This is necessary because it allows us to determine if a child is able to dive or not (for example, a child may be too fragile/thin to carry the weight of the equipment). Once you know where we are and have met our friendly instructors, you'll be ready for your course! If you do not need our pick-up service, we'll meet at the agreed time at our base. There is free parking available. Here, you will get a short briefing about the safety rules and basics of diving from your guide.

The PADI Open Water Diver Course qualifies you to:
- Dive to a maximum depth of 18 metres/60 feet
- Plan and execute dives with a certified buddy
- Rent or buy diving equipment in dive centres worldwide
