Are you short on time but really want to become a diver?

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the PADI Open Water scuba diving course.

If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver course offered by Adrenalised Diving in Cape Town might be right for you ̶ particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning the PADI Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
