PADI stands for Professional Association of Dive Instructors (www.padi.com). The Association has over 40 years experience of teaching recreational diving courses with all our courses PADI accredited. PADI courses have been tried, tested and refined over the years and have proven their worth for millions of certified divers.

PADI teaches more students annually then all the other agencies put together. As a PADI Diver, you carry the most respected and sought after scuba qualification in the world. No matter where you choose to dive, your PADI certification card will be recognized and accepted. 

As a PADI student you will receive a top quality course supported by the best course materials available.

Our instructors all have considerable experience both in Cape Town and abroad and have a wealth of knowledge to share. Due to the instructor/student ratios you will have plenty of personal attention and time to ask questions. If this means spending more time in the water or classroom than is indicated for the particular course, then there will be no extra charge. 

Equipment provided is always in good condition to ensure both safety and comfort.  The Dive Sites selected are in accordance with the training courses borne in mind.  They are interesting and varied not just "training" dives off the same old "training" beach. We are dedicated in seeing students being certified as confident and safe divers. 

A good start is essential to safe and enjoyable diving.



The Divers Alert Network is internationally recognised as the authority on treatment & recovery training for the dive industry. Their courses are not just for divers though!
