Today, do something for the first time; experience the thrill of scuba diving under the supervision of a PADI professional.

You will master some of the basic concepts of diving in confined water (pool or shallow sea) and then head off on an open water adventure at an inviting ‘shallow’ reef. Experience the feeling of weightlessness in a new environment and enjoy the vibrant colours and amazing variety of the Lefkada Sea marine life. Depending on which of our dive sites you visit, the open water dive included in this program will be from the boat or shore.

When you complete the DSD, you can continue your experience with an optional second open water dive, arranged and paid for locally with the Dive Centre, or continue with the PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Course.

Duration: 2 Days

The PADI Scuba Diver program is an entry level certification, which is perfect for when you’re on holiday and plan to dive just a couple of times a year.

With this certification, you can dive under the direct supervision of a PADI professional anywhere in the world to a max depth of 12m – a wonderful opportunity to explore your underwater kingdom in comfort and safety with an experienced guide accompanying you. You can also, at any time after certifying as a Scuba Diver, take a short upgrade course to become a PADI Open Water Diver.

Throughout the course, you’ll learn a lot about scuba diving, including your diving equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing 3 knowledge development sessions, 3 dive skill sessions in confined water, a 10 minute float, a 200m swim and 2 dives in the beautiful Lefkada Sea. The dives can be from the boat or shore depending on which dive site you visit. This is your chance to put on some fins, strap on a mask and experience an amazing adventure!

The knowledge and skills you learn in this program are just the beginning of an exciting array of courses and programs that await you.

Duration: 4-5 Days
