BLUE ISLAND DIVING COURSES
At Blue Islands Diving we offer a range of courses which are fully undertaken by our PADI qualified staff. With years of experience in Scuba Diving we offer the best facilities, equipment and training techniques to ensure you learn while having fun.
PADI SCUBA DIVING COURSE – 330 €
This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification.
This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:
- Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres / 40 feet
- Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision
PADI OPEN WATER DIVE COURSE – 450 €
The world’s most popular scuba course that has introduced millions of people to an adventurous diving lifestyle.
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts.
ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVE COURSE – 380 €
Helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.
This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving and it is designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.
EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE PRIMARY & SECONDARY – 150 €
First aid and CPR are good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports and you will need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course.
Emergency First Response is a course that specializes in teaching lifesaving skills – and they’re for anyone, not just divers. Most PADI Instructors are also Emergency First Response Instructors!
The fun part about Emergency First Response training is learning serious medical emergency response skills in an upbeat, positive environment. You gain the confidence and are more prepared to help in an emergency.
