Learn To Dive

Beginnersdiscover scuba diving

Ideal for individuals, couples and families to enjoy on holiday.

The half a day Discover Scuba Diving experience programme is designed for people from the age of 10 who want to try scuba diving for the first time.
A similar experience is available for 8-9 year olds and is called Bubblemaker.

See our group and family deals below for great discounts.

Discover Scuba Diving covers basic knowledge on the equipment, some basic theory and then goes on to practice in shallow water. Once you are ready we then move into open water for a dive in the warm, crystal clear, blue waters of Cyprus. Depths are from 2m to 12m depending on your comfort level and as you gain in confidence during the dive.

We have the very best conditions and locations to ensure our divers get the most from this amazing holiday experience. We also highly recommend a follow up open water dive on the same day to enjoy the experience even more and to help cement the skills and knowledge learned during the first dive.

Discover Scuba Diving is suitable for all age groups, for divers who haven’t dived for a long period, and is an excellent taster for those thinking of doing the full Open Water Course.


Padi Open Water Courselearn to dive with the padi open water diver course

Learn to dive with the PADI Open Water Course. Both this and the Scuba Diver sub-course are the first courses to fully qualify you as a Diver.

The Open Water Course is the most popular diving course in the world and takes you from a beginner to being a fully qualified diver to a maximum depth of 18 metres. The course is completed over 3 to 4 days. 

This is your first course as a new diver and therefore is a very important one. At Cyprus Diving Adventures our experienced Instructors will ensure that you are trained to the very best standard and in a friendly manner. We want you to fully learn the key skills required to ensure you enjoy many years of great diving and continually be able to improve your ability. Safety is also a top priority during our courses.




The Open WaterDiver course consists mainly of;

  • A knowledge development section where you complete the theory side of the course.
  • A number of confined water sessions where you practice all the required skills and learn to dive.
  • 4 open water dives to further develop your diving skills and complete 4 actual dives.

The course knowledge development work can be completed in a number of ways to suit your own preference. There is the manual version which you can study here or we can send it to you to complete before you come on holiday.

We can send you the manual and DVD to study before you come to Cyprus saving valuable holiday time. Alternatively you can do all of the theory work online with e-learning at home. We would suggest the best method of this is to complete the 'Litepak' and we can email you a link for this with full instructions, basically it is an online version of the manual and we go over both versions with you too in the classroom and evaluate your understanding when you start the course. These are our preferred methods to get the best quality course and more quality time with an experienced Instructor at the very beginning, especially on the Open Water Course.

Or you can use the Padi elearning link for laptops, and the Open Water Touch link for Ipads or Android below. This completes all theory online with no one to one with an Instructor on the theory and there is an extra cost for this.

Also of course the studying can just be completed here, the choice is yours.

PADI elearning and on your Ipad with OW Touch. Alternatively we can send you the link by email for either of these options.
