Get your Open Water Diver certificate and explore the Mediterranean Sea with our PADI course in Kallithea for beginners!. You will be able to explore the beautiful beach of Kavourakia and the marine life while enjoying this unique sport.
There is no experience needed, as this course starts from the very basics in the classroom before moving to confined waters to try diving for the first time. Once you get used to the feeling of no gravity and the safety skills, we will move to open water. Our certified instructors will be by your side at all times, making sure you stay safe and have fun during your introduction to the world of scuba diving!
If you choose the eLearning option, we will send you the access details to the programme after the booking. It consists on 5 chapters of theory that you will have to complete before the course starts. You also have to pass a multiple choice test to get your certificate. On the first day of the course, you just have to show us that you have completed the theoretical part of PADI Open Water Diving Course and you can move directly to the practical part. With this option, the course in Kallithea takes only 2 days to complete.- On-site theory lecture:
If you pick the option to take the theoretical course on-site, you will learn all about scuba diving theory in a classroom setting at the dive centre with one of our instructors. You will go through 5 sections of theory and then will have to complete a multiple choice exam to get your certificate. With this option, the duration of the total course is 4 days.- Kick-off:
