Trust us to give you the best PADI dive courses possible
Our mission is to make happy divers. Whether you're an absolute beginner with a fear of water or an experienced diver with hundreds of dives under your weight belt, we have the expertise and local knowledge to make your diving experience the best it can be.
Every member of our team of PADI Instructors has one thing in common, a track record of excellence in taking care of people. We pick our instructors based not only on their qualifications but on their empathy, teaching ability and enthusiasm to share their love of the world's oceans.
Even if you have no experience at all (maybe you've never even set foot in the ocean!) we can introduce you to the fabulous underwater world with the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program.
Your first real certification in diving will be the PADI Open Water Diver: this is three days of fun while you're learning all the skills you will need to become a safe, relaxed diver anywhere in the world.
If you're already certified, we have the full range of PADI courses available, including the PADI Advanced Course and the PADI Rescue Course. If you can't see the course you want below, please contact us for more information. #ecodiveclubmaafushi
