After trying scuba, many new divers may decide to repeat the experience. Others will choose to pursue certification by enrolling in a PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course.

The Bubblemaker program introduces scuba as an activity that allows children to experience the underwater world.

5 days – Minimum 15 years old ( 4 dives + 1 Pool session )
The PADI Rescue Diver course is a pivotal step in expanding a diver’s knowledge and experience. Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the safety and well-being of other divers. This is why the PADI Rescue Diver certification is a prerequisite for all PADI leadership-level training (PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, and Open Water Scuba Instructor). Rescue Diver training expands the basic problem prevention and accident management skills. At the Rescue Diver level, students are ready to learn to manage more complex dive emergencies and to apply direct intervention techniques to assist others in an emergency. By its nature, the course is demanding, though realistic in its conduct, content and approach. Although the nature and context in which rescue training may be used is serious, the course should be an enjoyable challenge that builds diver confidence. The Rescue Training Sessions: ten rescue skills students learn during confined sessions, with a brief explanation of the rationale and philosophy behind each. The rescue skills learned during the Rescue Training Sessions form the foundation for dive emergency management. The four dive accident scenarios in open water give student divers the opportunity to apply all these skills in a realistic context, providing them with added learning.
The PADI Rescue Diver course student diver must successfully complete a sanctioned course in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR-Primary Care) and basic first aid (Secondary Care) within the past two years (24 months).
