OPTION 1 – SCUBA DIVING IN THE POOL

After a short briefing, participants get to try out diving with the equipment in the swimming pool under the supervision of a qualified PADI Instructor or Dive Master.
Course schedule for pool dive
After registration, a PADI Instructor will give you a briefing and teach you how the scuba gear works. Then, when you are ready the fun starts as you get into the pool to take your first breath under the water!
We spend some time in the pool where we teach you a few skills, and play around under water as you experience the thrill of diving!
OPTION 2 – SCUBA DIVING IN THE OPEN WATER
We start off the course by teaching you how to dive in the pool, same as in the first option (On calm days, we might also elect to do the skill development in a calm shallow area of the Red Sea, simulating a pool like environment) From here, we then go on to the real adventure – diving in the Red Sea in Jeddah!
Entering the sea from a gentle beach, we go underwater exploring and learning scuba diving. Depending on where you dive on the day (which is dependant on sea conditions).
Skills that you learn in this course counts as credits toward your PADI Open Water Diver Certification.
