Quality, safe, personalised scuba diving tuition

Please note that course availability depends on overall demand. Please e-mail us for further information.

Diamond Diving prides itself on a high standard of and personalised scuba diving tuition. If you compare our course fees with other dive centres and resorts you will find that we are not the cheapest on the market. We firmly believe you get what you pay for, and what you pay for with us encompasses the following:

  • We never teach any of the PADI courses we offer with the maximum instructor to student ratios permitted. This is for two reasons. Firstly, we are bound to operate under French diving law which sets a maximum student to instructor ratio of 4:1. Secondly we believe small class sizes are vital to optimising your learning experience and creating safe and confident divers.
  • Our courses, within the constraints of your holiday time, are scheduled to suit the student. We will be flexible wherever possible.
  • We are big fans of PADI eLearning (click here to find out more) a high quality online resource that enables clients to complete the theory elements of the Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Rescue and Divemaster courses in their own time, wherever they are. It also encompasses the Scuba Review and Nitrox and Digital Underwater Photography specialties. This enables instructor time to be even more concentrated on the main priority of developing your practical ability and confidence as far as possible.
  • We believe in supplementing and increasing your diving knowledge as much as possible. This includes, among other things, information on the Mediterranean eco-system, boat etiquette and answering your questions fully and attentively (at an appropriate time).
  • We are not affiliated to any particular equipment reseller or manufacturer but we will happily provide impartial and sensible advice on equipment to clients. This is included within the course price. We will also happily give clients a tour of our retail partner who stock an excellent product range from a number of quality market leading scuba equipment brands.
  • For the Open Water course your confined water training will encompass a minimum of twelve hours instructor time.
