How long does it take?

The program has been specifically designed to be completed on a part-time / weekend basis.

We understand you all have very busy lives, working and studying, so we have tailored the program to allow you to continue your day-to-day weekly schedules and to work your way through our program on the odd week day evening and on weekends.

The course takes 10 - 12 months to complete. We've had guys finish it in as little as 8 months and we have guys do it over 2 years due to other work commitments.

It all depends how urgently you need to complete the course & how dedicated or flexible you are.

The good news is that our program is completely modular, so if you can't make 1 weekend we simply carry on from where you left off when you come back.

It is really that simple....

Do I need to study?

When you confirm your course, we will send you the first courses' materials for the PADI Open Water Course, containing everything you need to get started.

Simply work through eth online materials & once on course, you will explore the remaining dive theory with your PADI Instructor.

Learning is an ongoing development process so you will learn something new each time you dive with us.

Towards the end of the program, there are some comprehensive lectures covering dive theory.

We conduct these as live lectures and we also have a series of online courses for you to review.

So the short answer is "Yes", you have to study, but it's not like you will have to study like a mad person... but you will have to review the info you learn each week.

What gear do I need?

Our course includes use of all gear as needed, however, as you move up the ranks it is highly recommended that you purchase your own dive gear.

You're are aiming to be a dive professional, so for your own personal comfort and peace of mind, we highly recommend that you start purchasing all your own gear.

* Preferential rates will be given to all CDC candidates when on course with us.

To attend the course, I must be...

17 years or older while doing the Open Water, Advanced & Rescue Certifications.

You must be 18 yrs or older from the start of the Divemaster & Instructor portions of the course.

You will begin the Divemaster section of the course about 6 months into the course.

Tell me more about Bass Lake where we do our Open Water Dives

Bass Lake is a reclaimed & rehabilitated open-cast quarry that has flooded with fresh rain & groundwater that is filtered through the surrounding dolomite rock. Bass Lake offers a good training facility with all necessary facilities such as ablutions and an on-site coffee shop.  

Over the years enthusiastic divers have taken it upon themselves to sink their own wrecks for us to explore and some of the more interesting ones include an old school bus, a helicopter frame and the fuselage of a single-engined airplane. There are also a few bathtubs and toilets... weird.. but true...

There are camping facilities at Bass Lake and there are a number of guest houses & B&Bs in the Henley-on-Klip town for those that are keen for a weekend adventure. However, due to the close proximity to JHB we find most clients commute through each day.
