Qualified Diver Courses

All our PADI scuba diving courses in Gozo, Malta include certification. Only the Divemaster course does not include the equipment hire.

We are happy to have the manuals or CD roms posted to you before you get here, so that you can study in spare time rather than holiday time.

All courses are subject to availability on a first come first served basis.

Minimum age for PADI courses is 10 years old (only exception is that we can run a 1 on 1 bubblemaker experience for 8 year olds for €35, max depth 2 meters for 20 minutes).

Download the self-certification medical form ​here. If you have any ‘yes’ answers then a doctor will need to sign your form before you can dive.

If there is not a course running that is convenient for you to fit in with, then we will run one just for you and our price structure reflects this policy.

We run our PADI scuba diving courses to the highest possible standards to make sure you truly master every skill. Unlike some other centres we do not charge for extra lessons.

*If you have booked as a group, and do not complete it as a group, the discount will no longer apply.

*If you have not bought the manuals from us PADI charge us an extra 40euros for the PIC certification and we have to pass this cost on to you, sorry, we think it’s unfair too, but PADI make the rules. So please buy the manuals, digital manuals or e-learning from us and aviod the extra fee. 

*If you fail to complete the PADI course on your holiday, we give you up to one year to come back and we offer to complete the course at no extra cost.

Try Dive

Your introduction to the underwater realm

The course involves a quick lecture on just the basics on how to make it fun and safe. This will typically last about half an hour.

Following this we will get you “kitted-up,” getting the scuba gear that fits you. The equipment use is included in the price and you will find ours to be of the highest quality and well maintained.

We build things up in very small steps so you start off in shallow water where you can still stand up, then just putting your face in the water, then kneeling down in shallow water and then swimming in shallow water. With this done with no more than 2 customers per member of staff, your safety is well looked after and it is made into a lot of fun.

Once this is all done, we’re off to the water to experience the weightlessness under water, look at the beautiful underwater scenery up to a maximum depth of 6 meters! It’s an experience NOBODY ever forgets!

 

If the dives are not done in the bay in front of our shop in Marsalforn,Gozo, there is a €5 charge each for the extra time it takes to go elsewhere.

Open Water Referral

After completing all of the theory, quizzes, exam and pool sessions of the open water elsewhere, you can now bring all of this knowledge, along with the referral paper work completed by your instructor, to our dive centre.

The Open Water dives are the assessment dives of the course where you have to be able to demonstrate mastery of the skills you learned in the confined water.

If you have not dived in a while or do not feel that you have complete mastery it would be best to book a scuba review (40euros) prior to the start of the referral, because we are not allowed to re demonstrate skills to you on the assessment dives.

Advanced Open Water Diver

Taking your Diving to a New Level – Advanced Open Water Diver

The same format as the Adventure Diver but with 5 dives in specific areas.

Within the 5 dives however, there has to be 1 Deep dive and 1 Navigation dive (If they were not completed during the Adventure Diver course).

The choices we offer are digital underwater imaging, fish id, naturalist, peak performance buoyancy (PPB), night (extra 5 euros for torch hire), wreck (has to be by boat diving the P31 ,Rozie or P29 extra 15euros for the boat trip) and obviously boat…

All dives are reinforced with a manual and Knowledge development quizzes.

An eye opener of a course, especially the navigation dive!

This course makes sure you can go out AND come back to the same area, as well as dive to depth (Up to 30m!) safely.

The completion of the course allows you to dive to 30 meters and allows you to dive unsupervised in Malta, although we would recommend rescue training and having prior experience of the dive sites as well as someone with dive-leading qualifications in the group before you do that.

A great course to do here as apart from the navigation (and PPB if you choose that option) the dives can be done along with the guided dives, so you get to see the best sites on the Island as well as gaining the qualification.

Remember, the price includes the equipment hire!

PADI standards require you to have a manual which we sell for €54.00, or we can supply a digital one for €50.

Rescue Diver

“Wow that was a hard course, but I loved it” Celine Ravier, Rescue Diver.

Possibly one of the most rewarding courses. It not only builds confidence in yourself, it shows you how to instill confidence in others and to help them at the time they really need somebody who knows what they are doing.

The course not only trains you on how to cope with a situation, it shows you how to avoid them.

Consisting of 13 training areas that cover the majority of situations you may face in the open water, the course concludes with 2 difference scenarios.

The training is a fun experience, underlined with the serious nature of what you are learning.
