PADI Scuba Diver Certification Course

The PADI Scuba Diver course qualifies you for a lifelong scuba certification and lets you experience the thrill of diving under the close supervision of one of Scuba-Fun’s experienced PADI Instructors in our ocean lagoon. During your adventure, you'll master the basic scuba concepts and skills and you will take part in a real open water adventure with two certification dives in the Emerald ocean lagoon.

This program is the ideal way to experience scuba diving without having to enroll on a full course.

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a full day experience with 2 real open water dives in our sheltered ocean lagoon. An exciting adventure lies ahead of you!


Anybody 10 years or older who is healthy and reasonably fit and feels comfortable in the water can participate in this program. You will need a swimsuit, a towel, sunscreen and dive-quality mask, snorkel and fins (these can also be rented for a low fee or bought at a reduced package price from us).

Please check out the prerequisite medical questionnaire here.

Course contents

Knowledge development

In preparation for the course, we will send you the PADI Open Water Diver manual and tables (included in the course fee). You read through the first 3 chapters of the manual in self-study and answer the knowledge reviews at the end of each chapter. You then take the 3 quizzes to determine your level of knowledge.  Your instructor will run through your answers with you on the day of your course and remediate any missing knowledge, as well as use a video to reinforce the most important rules of scuba diving. This takes approximately 1 ½ hours.

Training and equipment handling

Your experienced and patient instructor will spend some time to give you a detailed briefing about the following training sessions. Under water, shallow enough to stand up in, you can watch a slow and detailed demonstration of all the necessary skills. You will then have time to practice these important skills under the instructor’s direct supervision.

Diving with tropical fish

Once you have mastered the required skills you can continue with the next part of the program, the 2 open water dives. At a maximum depth of 30 feet your instructor will practice your new skills with you and during the underwater tour show you a pretty variety of tropical fish. Small barracudas, snappers, groupers, trumpet fish and many other marine creatures will greet you in their world. You may even be able to get a peek into the famous Jules Underwater Hotel! Your experienced instructor understands your challenges as a beginner and will be there to assist you while under water. After the course, you can obtain the PADI Scuba Diver certification, which entitles you to scuba dive anywhere in the world with a professional dive buddy and is valid for a lifetime.
