Frequently asked questions about diving courses

How much does a diving course cost?

Like everything in life, it depends. The level of the chosen diving course, the country where it is held, etc. The higher the degree of specialization and, therefore, the more demanding the course is in terms of content and effort on the part of the student, the higher the price increases. That is why the courses to obtain the Dive Master or Scuba Diver Instructor certification are the ones with the highest price, which can be between 1,000 and 1,500€. In the case of the Open Water course, the most used for those who want to start diving, the price is approximately 350€. In addition, individual or package dives are offered at a more affordable price.

How do the diving courses work?

We can differentiate between three main groups of diving courses; those aimed at beginners and people who wish to learn to dive; advanced courses aimed at divers with previous experience who wish to deepen their diving practice or specialize in some area; and professional courses, aimed at training divers who will be able to teach courses on their own.

All courses have associated theoretical contents, as well as a series of dives to put this knowledge into practice. The courses range from one day, in the case of the most basic ones, such as the diving baptism (only one day), to the instructor courses, which can last up to 15 days.

What is a Try Scuba?

The Discover Scuba Diving is a 1 day beginner dive experience that gives you the opportunity to experience the underwater world without committing to a 2 or 3 day certification program, you will have a short class in the morning to learn the basics of the equipment and prepare you for the underwater environment. After the class, you will have a practice session in the pool or on the shore of the beach, to get used to the diving equipment and to breathe underwater, once you feel super comfortable in your first attempt, we will make a dive that can reach a maximum depth of 12 meters.
