Learn to Dive Gold Coast

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn to Dive Gold Coast? If you’re thinking about learning to dive and not quite sure where to start, keep reading for a summary of the best way to start your underwater adventure.

There are three entry level options available to get started. These include: The PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, PADI Scuba Diver Course and PADI Open Water Diver programs which will teach you all about scuba diving, as well as how to be safe and have fun while you do it!

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

If you want to try scuba diving and learn to Dive Gold Coast, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health. At Aqua Adventures, this is a half-day experience which will take place at the iconic Wavebreak Island. Are you ready to try it out? Book your discover scuba diving experience here.

PADI Scuba Diver Course

So you loved your Discover Scuba Diving experience and want to get certified? Our PADI Scuba Diver Course is for you! The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet.
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.
  • Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.

At Aqua Adventures, our standard course includes all course materials, PADI registration fees, in-water sessions and gear rental to complete the course. The skills you master in our PADI Scuba Diver Course can also count toward the requirements for the Open Water Diver Course. So if you’re ready to begin your journey to becoming a certified scuba diver, you can book our PADI Scuba Diver Course here.

PADI Open Water Diver Course

So you’re ready to be a certified diver? Our PADI Open Water Diver Course is where you will earn a scuba certification that proves you’re a diver who can dive on your own, without the supervision of a PADI trainer. This course will run for approximately 3 days and consists of eLearning theory, confined water training and four open water dives. Ready to take the plunge?
