Start your scuba diving certification journey with a PADI Scuba Diving course in the beautiful holiday destination that is Crete. Diver's Club Crete will help you learn everything you need to know about scuba diving and our highly professional instructors will be by your side as you begin to gain experience underwater. Enjoy the fascinating submarine wildlife that can be found just off the shore in front of our dive centre while you qualify as a PADI Scuba Diver.
Goal of the course
After having completed the PADI Scuba Diver course, you are able to dive to a maximum depth of 12m, given that you are properly supervised by a PADI professional. You will be introduced to the world of scuba diving, get to know how your scuba gear works and familiarise yourself with the sensation of breathing underwater. Furthermore, with it being a sub-programme of the PADI Open Water Diver programme, you would only need to attend another 2 theory lessons and complete 2 confined water dives and 2 open water dives in order to obtain the full Open Water Diver certification.
Meeting & Preparation
We meet at our dive centre where you will meet your instructor and discuss the schedule of your course. We will ask you to fill out the PADI medical statement to ensure you are fit to go scuba diving. Once all the formalities have been taken care of, you can start with your first theory lesson. You can either purchase the PADI Diver Manual from us or choose the option 'Without PADI Manual' if you already own one. In any case, the PADI Manual is required for the course.
