Learn to Dive

Haven’t you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater?

We offer both Scheduled (group classes) and Private instruction for every option.

We recommend completing the academics online via E-Learning, thus saving time on your vacation. All you have to do is just click on Signup E-Learning for PADI E-Learning. Register using our store name, Shoal Bay Scuba (Karma Charters) Ltd and Store #20803 and you are on your way to doing all the book work and academics online, prior to your vacation and in the comfort of your own home. We do not charge for this service as it is offered directly by PADI and you pay them directly (the cost is around $170.00 USD per person). Once signed up, we are informed by PADI when you start and kept informed on your process throughout the course until completion. When signing up for E-Learning, please then enter the discount code “Elearning” while booking your confined water training to receive the E-Learning discount.

CONFINED WATER SKILLS

The confined water training is the first step to the underwater world  as a certified diver. It will ease you into all the fundamentals of diving gently. You will learn new skills and progress fluidly from one to another, mastering each skill  before moving onto the next.

OPEN WATER DIVES 1 & 2

On these dives, you will put into practice the skills perfected in the confined water training in a safe and relaxed environment. We will ensure that you complete every skill in a competent manner, while getting used to buoyancy and the equipment in an open water environment.

OPEN WATER DIVES 3 & 4

This focuses on getting you to plan and execute a dive and dive within buddy pairs, including computer use and safety stops. By the end of the fourth dive you will feel excited to be able to do this and it will boost you confidence knowing you are ready to become a certified diver.

ACADEMICS

We recommend E-Learning. Once signed up you will follow the schedule, move through the modules and take the final exam. This is then followed by a quick review with us. If using the manual and DVD, you watch the DVD and read the manual in your own time, completing the knowledge reviews at the end of every section. Once complete, we schedule a session where we go through the knowledge reviews before completing a multiple choice mini quiz exam. We go through this again to ensure you understand the material prior to taking the multiple choice final exam.
