No Time? No Problem! PADI's Scuba Diver or
referral programs give you more options than ever before.
The PADI Scuba diver course can be completed in as
little as one weekend. Basically you complete around half the PADI Open
Water Diver course e.g. 3 academic sessions 2 pool sessions and two
Open Water dives. Having completed this you would then gain a
restricted licence, so the next time you go on holiday you can dive as

professional. The great thing is that you can upgrade your
certification to become an Open Water Diver in as little time as two
The course fee of HK$2,800 includes manuals, log
books, all equipment rental and processing of your PADI certification
card (no hidden extras!) Diving groups would be small (maximum 6
people) and the tuition will be with an experienced Instructor.

their head in a study guide! The PADI referral program allows you to do
part of the course here in Hong Kong and simply complete the diving

The first option would be to complete the
academic's and the pool training in Hong Kong leaving you with just
four dives to complete on your holiday. We may even be able to
recommend a reputable dive centre at your destination. This is roughly
two thirds of the course and can be tailored to your needs whether it
is on the weekends or mid-week evenings. The course fee is $2,800 and
includes manuals, log books and all equipment rental.
Training at South Island School.
