PADI Scuba Diver Course Overview

An intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification.

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  -particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification if that’s your ultimate goal.

PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/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.

At ABC Diving your instructor will be a recognised PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer with at least 500 dives experience in Maltese waters. You will be in safe hands.
