Once successfully completed you will recieve the SSI Basic Diver Certification valid for 6 months. During this time you can dive in any SSI Diving Center with an SSI Professional up to 12m depth, and continue with the Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course.

1. Be 12 years or older.
2. Be a safe swimmer.
3. Complete the Medical Questionnaire (answering all first 10 questions with “No”) or present Medical certificate proving your physical ability to scuba dive.

How much time do I have to plan for the SSI Basic Diver Course?
The Basic Diver Course takes about 8 hours in total (from arrival at our shop till you leave). All our dives are limited to a maximum dive time of 60 minutes, but may be shorter depending on the dive site and your air consumption.
Is it possible to go on a Single Dive without scuba diving experience?
Of course, that’s exactly what the Basic Diver Course is designed for.
Are there activities for my non-diving family?
Your non-diving family can join as a boat passenger for 35,00 € (during the boat dive) wich includes rental equipment (mask, snorkel, fins, wet suit, and boots) as well as drinking water and a 2 piece pack of Quelitas. They may also rent snorkeling equipment to snorkel on their own while you do your confined water dive from shore.
Please note: If they’re not interested in doing some snorkeling while you are diving we do not recommend to take them as boat passengers since they’ll spend the whole time on our speedboat, wich is designed to transport divers fast from the port to our dive sites, but not to spend an afternoon on. We may decline boat passengers on certain dive sites or trips.
Learn about pressure, the underwater environment and the scuba equipment the basics of scuba diving.
