adventure be?

Start your adventure


Safe, simple, & fun

Most people never try scuba diving because they are too scared. It definitely is adventurous and it’s true that it takes time getting used to the gear and breathing underwater. This experience lets you try it out in the best way possible!

Discover the thrill of breathing underwater

You’re at the only dive centre with a pool on the island and 2) you’ll soon find out scuba diving isn’t so scary or hard as people think. Take your time to get comfortable in the pool first and have loads of fun in the ocean afterwards


The world’s most popular scuba certification course.

Why take this course?

In a nutshell: because it changes your freaking life! Divers don’t forget their first breaths underwater and those first days in a whole new world. It is exhilarating and rewarding. Wherever you’ll go, dive shops will ask for your certification when you want to join dives, hire equipment, or fill a tank. This certification is valid and recognised world-wide and… there is no expiration date!


Build confidence and become a better diver!

Why take this course?

Continue your adventure and dive deeper. Honestly, going deeper is probably the #1 reason to take the course, though it’s not the only one. Yes – you’ll get to go deeper than your certification course, so you won’t miss out on that cool wreck or certain species of marine life anymore. And yes, this really does change the game! But there’s so much more: you’ll learn how to nail underwater navigation, fine-tune your buoyancy, and go on 3 more adventures of your choice. You ready?


Why take this course?

Ok so we won’t lie to you – it’s not easy. But it’s so freaking rewarding! You’ll gain loads of confidence as you learn how to prevent and deal with problems underwater. You’ll learn how to self-rescue, recognise and manage stress in other divers, rescue panicked divers, rescue unconscious divers, and manage emergency equipment.


This depends on you and the PADI course you choose! Contact us about your specific course and we can give you a better idea of how long it will take.

All PADI courses now have eLearning which can be completed in English, Norwegian, Swedish, German, Dutch, Polish, Danish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew, Italian, Korean, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese Simplified, and Chinese Traditional. For the practical portion of your course, we do our best to match you with an instructor who speaks your language. We can’t always make this happen but we do always make it work: dive signs are universal! 🙂

Yep, that’s the beauty of PADI’s online courses! When you’ve chosen your PADI course, you can get started on it immediately (or not) and take all the time you need to complete the independent study portion of the course before coming to Nautico to start your inwater training.

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health + fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving. Have a look at the Diver Medical Form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course.
