You do not need to be a professional
swimmer to learn to scuba diving. You need to know basic swim skills and be
able to swim 200 meters unaided or 300 meters using fins, mask and a snorkel.
Our dive center is in the Habtoor
Grand Resort on JBR. We conduct most of our courses from Dubai. Some course or
part of the courses are conducted in Fujairah.
There are 4 sessions
to complete in the Open Water Course. 2 in the swimming pool and 2 in the sea.
Each session takes 3-4 hours to complete. You can do either 1 or 2 sessions
each day. The course days do not need to be consecutive but as and when you are
your dives, you need to complete the theory materials required for your course.
Once you have completed them email the PADI student e-record to firstname.lastname@example.org
and let us know when you would like to start.
We run courses 9 am
to 6 pm daily and are very flexible scheduling, let us know a few days in
advance before you wish to come so we can make sure we can schedule you in for
the time you wish.
Once you become a
PADI certified diver your certification is valid worldwide and for life. PADI

refresher course to remind you of the skills needed to dive.
Once you purchase the course it is valid for one year. However, once you start the practical part of the course you need complete the course within 6 months.
