Entry Level Courses
This is where the adventure begins.
Entry level courses include the “Have a Go Experience”, the 2 day PADI Scuba Diver Course or the 3 to 4 day PADI Open Water Diver all conducted and managed by Emperor’s highly professional instructors.
Advanced Level Courses
These courses allow you to gain the most from your diving experiences.
The first course in your progression is the 2 day PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, a must if you really want to get the most from your diving around the world. Nowadays NITROX is easily available, so many divers complete the PADI Enriched Air. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy and Deep Diver are also popular courses providing you with the skills required to tackle the more challenging dives found in many famous diving locations.
We offer speciality courses like Drift and Night Diver or even our very own PADI Dugong Appreciation Specialty that can be booked when you are in resort. We’ve listed the most popular on our Specialty Courses page.
