Learn to dive in the Philippines – Scuba classes in Dumaguete 3-4 days
Some people have dreamt about going scuba diving their whole life, where others randomly bumps into it on their travel around the world. No matter how you get yourself into it, most people learn to dive will do their PADI Open Water which is where you’ll learn all the basics of diving.
PADI stands for Professional Association Of Dive Instructors and is the most recognised certification worldwide.
Learning to dive will change your life forever and learning to dive in the Philippines isn’t the worst place to do it. Crystal clear waters surrounding the islands and one of the most biodiverse places on earth means you’ll be completely spoiled from day one, with colourful corals, turtles, moray eels, lion fish, barracudas, large groupers etc etc etc.
The PADI Open Water certification consist of of theoretical part which can either be done onsite or before arrival with E-Learning, The Knowledge development is five chapters, 4 quizzes and a final exam which is all multiple choices. There is 5 confined water sessions, and then finally 4 open water dives. The dives you do for your course we conduct in the amazing marine sanctuaries in Dauin. Did we forget to mention that we actually have a turtle guarantee. So far out of thousands certifications have we never missed a turtle yet (and please don’t be the first one)… Further more for your dive certification you would need to prove that you can swim at least 200 meters and float for 10 minutes to finally earn your certification. All this takes 3-5 days varies from individual. The course is performance based and therefore it is difficult to answer the exact number of days, it’ll take since this varies. Sure is though if you choose to do the Elearning you’ll cut the course one day shorter in general…
