Options for Beginner Diving Courses
1. PADI Open Water Diver course
PADI Open Water is the single most popular diving course in the world. We’ve trained thousands of PADI Divers, and most of them go from 0 to fully qualified divers in just 4 days. Get ready to explore a whole new part of the world!
2. Test the water
Not everyone has the time or confidence to jump straight into the Open Water course. You can test the water with a half day PADI Discover Scuba Diving course (‘Intro dive’) or the 2-day PADI Scuba Diver course. And if you fall in love with diving in Dahab, you can proceed directly to the full PADI Open Water Diver course.
