Is it difficult to learn to dive?

You don't have to decide to book a diving course right away.

There is PADI, which is the world's largest diving training organization and offers a test diving program. This is called Discover Scuba Diving.

So it is possible to determine in half a day whether you have fun diving and should pursue it further.

The theory is taught in the form of PADI e-learning (approx. 30-40 min).

Afterwards you will receive a briefing from your PADI Instructor who will carry out the Discover Scuba Diving program with you and then it starts.

In the shallow water area you will be taught some helpful exercises from the beginner course and then there will be a dive with your instructor where you can reach a maximum depth of 12 m if you want.

The Discover Scuba Diving program is a pure adventure program and does not entitle you to dive independently afterwards.

However, you can build on this program, and we will credit the acquired knowledge to your further training in the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The PADI Open Water Diver Course

The theoretical part of diving training

There is also an e-learning program for the PADI Open Water Diver course.

This allows you to do the whole theory part 24/7, whenever you want. Expect 15-20 hours for the theory.

The advantage is and I would recommend that you can do the whole theory before you go on holiday and thus save valuable holiday time on site.

Your e-learning course also includes the repetition questions, quizzes and a final exam.

If you have any questions, you will always receive support from our instructors.

The practical part of diving training

For many, it seems like the more difficult part.

Many wonder if it is difficult to breathe underwater. Is that even safe? No, I can't do that because I get pressure on my ears.

Oh yes, the first time you breathe through a regulator is a special experience. But believe me it works and is easier than you think.

You will also learn how to perform the pressure compensation very quickly.

Most people have already had this experience without knowing it when flying or driving over a mountain pass.

Your training will be done by an experienced instructor, and he will adapt your training to your rhythm and give you enough time to master all the necessary exercises.

So now to the question!

Is it difficult to learn to dive?

I would say "no" to this question.
