How do you learn to dive 

We generally do a three day course, however you can do a four day course if you choose the traditional text book study option rather than the online theory.

The three day learn to dive course is split up below.

Home study and introduction to the Dive Shop

Study in your own time online.  Your theory is done online whenever is convenient for you.  Once you've paid a deposit, we'll email you with a PADI e-learning access pass so you can get started right away.  Once you've finished the online study we bring you into the shop to size up for some gear and then move onto the pool.

Day 1
Into the pool! You will learn and practice all the necessary skills to be a confident open water diver.

Day 2

Now you will be ready to go diving in one of the beautiful islands we have here in Ubatuba, where you are going over the skills you've practiced in the pool and checking out what the local dive site is about. The instructor will always be close to you, giving you all the attention and making your diving fun. You are going to make two dives at this day.

Day 3

Another exciting two dives in different dive sites with the instructor to practice the skills and explore the beautiful local sites. After completing this you will get your PADI certificate Open water and you will be able to dive anywhere.

If you choose the four day option, all that changes is the theory part, that we will do it in two days and two sessions of pool.

PADI eLearning
If you choose the PADI eLearning option (like most people do) you can save yourself a day in the classroom by studying at home.  In order to do this either email or call our friendly staff and begin your theory right now at home.  Once you are ready, we'll arrange a date and time to conduct your pool training, beach and boat dives.
