Pleasure Divers Blurb:
Pleasure Divers is the only PADI 5 star centre on Magnetic Island, and we have been teaching people to dive for well over a decade. Our goal is to offer the best possible training and service at the best price. All of our courses are run to PADI standards, as well as the high standards we set for ourselves. By limiting our course size to a maximum of 8 students, we give you all the attention and services required to make your diving experience a real pleasure.
The Open Water course is a beginners diving course with 3 full days of skills, theory and 4 great island dives. The course is structured so that you are introduced to diving before entering the ocean. The pool will be your first experience, so that you the diver, can feel confident breathing and moving underwater. You will learn basic diving techniques, equipment preparation, safety procedures, underwater skills and the pure enjoyment of experiencing diving. An experienced instructor and dive master candidate will assist you and the other divers throughout the course, in a small class environment.
Your Ocean dives will take place from tropical Magnetic Island and we try to take you to at least 2 different dive sites. From the fringing coral reef of beautiful Alma Bay to the German shipwreck practically on our doorstep, Pleasure Divers dive more local dive sites than anyone else! We place an emphasis on making "divers" out of our students. We want you to really learn to dive - not just get certified!
Starts in the classroom where you'll learn about dive theory. Your instructor will explain dive physics, physiology, and how you are affected underwater. Your Instructor will also take you through each section step-by-step, so that you have a complete understanding of dive theory. After lunch you head for our purpose-built dive pool, here your instructor will demonstrate to you all the dive skills that you need to dive safely and confidently, You will learn how to: Clear water from your mask Clear water from your regulator Move in the water Control your buoyancy ....And a lot more All of the skills are easy to master and you will be given plenty of time to practice them in the pool before you head for the open-water.
Starts where you left off - in the pool, with some more dive skills and practice. Before long you will be swimming like a fish and ready for the ocean. After lunch your Instructor will take you to one of our Island dive sites, for your first open-water dive. On this dive you will get a chance to get comfortable being in the ocean. After you have completed dive 1 you'll head back into ocean, for your second training dive where you will repeat many of the skills that you mastered in the pool.
You're back into the ocean for your final 2 training dives. As you have already completed most of your skills on dive 2 you only have a few more skills on each dive. You will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sites. All that's left to do is to complete the theory and you’re CERTIFIED and ready to dive!
