Here are some quotes from a few of our Divemasters and Instructors: "I love teaching people what I love to do in a place that I love to be in all day every day. Diving is my religion, the ocean is my temple" - Mike aka 'Crush' Norval - PADI OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) "We dive not to escape life, but for life not to escape us". - Ben aka 'Skaapie' Schaap - PADI DM (Divemaster) "Diving is like sex, the first time you try you are nervous but its still the best thing you've ever tried" - Charl aka "Charlet' van der Merwe - PADI MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer) SO ARE YOU HOOKED YET? All that is left for you to do now, is to sign up for the PADI Divemaster course at Adrenalised Diving based in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa.
Ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, then the PADI Discover scuba diving experience in Cape Town offered by Ocean Experiences is perfect for you. While not a scuba certification course, the Discover Scuba Diving Experience is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
The Discover Scuba Diver program consists of a pool session with an instructor to get you comfortable in the water, learn important scuba skills, bouyancy and introduce you to breathing underwater.
If all the standards are met in the pool, your instructor will the take you to the Open Water Dive site where they will brief and guide you on your first Ocean Dive.
