Teaching Philosphy

We pride ourselves for the quality of our teaching and advocate low instructor to student ratios. Our average class size is no more than 4 students per instructor, so that we can focus more on indivdual student's skills development. Student will have ample of time to practice and will not feel rushed through the sessions. This greatly improves learning outcomes.

Course consist of 3 segments :

Knowledge Development:


• Learn the basic principles of scuba diving
• Complete at your own pace either with PADI e-learning online training or traditional manual home study.
• This part takes approx 8-10 hours, and can go along side with your confined water training, but must be completed before the Open Water dives.
• You have the option to study online using E-Learning, which provides the most flexibility and convenience. You don't need to wait for the group sessions and can begin anytime after enrollment.
• The other choice would be using the traditional paper manual, instructional video, classroom sessions with written quizzes & exam which we can also arrange.

Confined Water Training:


• 5 confined water modules in an easy pace that is performance based.
• Learn and practice scuba diving skills and safety procedures in swimming pool first.
• Our regular training is located in a private heated pool at the Aberdeen Boat Club during week nights Monday, Tuesday and/or Thursday from 8:00pm to 10:30pm. Here is the direction of how to get to the pool.
• Normally, you would need to attend 2-3 evenings in order to complete all required skills.
