So full of enthusiasm you are just signed up to do your first scuba diving course.
You have the option of including a specialty
Or having finished your first course.
You can go straight into the next course
and with only a couple more dives get your next qualification!!
It's all very exciting what to do? Should I buy some kit? That computer looks great!
What to do next???
May I suggest the following?
"Stop, Breathe and think!"That’s from the rescue course by the way
"Will this make me a better diver?"
Scuba Diving Training Agencies would like you to do course after course, remember that’s how they make their money.
So you want to become a scuba diver? Or you're looking to expand your diving skills with additional PADI Courses.
So now first thing is yourself where to go?
The Canary Islands ticks these boxes, Tenerife in particular.
So that's the destination sorted but who do the PADI Course with?
TenerifeScuba was formed in 2003 we are probably the longest established dive centre in Tenerife, certainly with the same management, we know Tenerife, with our team of multi-lingual instructors we know diving.
We have a highly experienced team of multi-lingual instructors
At TenerifeScuba our focus is on "People not the Money" Our first question, with any training course, is normally "Why do you want to?"
Just because you can do a particular PADI Course/Speciality doesn't mean you that you are ready.
On many occasions we have suggested to people they get some more experience before undertaking more PADI courses.
Want to know more then send us an email, give us a call.
"Flying after Diving or Ascending to Altitude after Diving when is it safe"
So you have booked your holiday and are going diving but the hotel is half way up a mountain….can you do it? Umgh…?
What people forget is that ascending to altitude is exactly the same as flying after diving. You need to be careful to minimise your risk of Decompression Sickness (DCS)
So what are the guidelines?
We want you to enjoy yourselves but at the same time to do it in a responsible manor.
On your first day with us we will need to see:
We always have boat cover/safety cover during the dives.
Each staff member is fully qualified for boat handling and trained in rescue techniques, oxygen administration and first aid
We always carry first aid and oxygen supply on every dive trip.
We will provide additional guides to cater for different levels of experience so that each individuals needs are catered for
The maximum number of people allowed on each boat excluding staff is 10.
Every diver is required by Spanish law to have insurance cover specifically for diving. We can arrange Insurance cover for you on your arrival it costs a few Euro's a day
People doing courses are covered under their instructors insurance while training
