Diving at La Manga del Mar Menor in Spain
 
Opportunity for Divers at La Manga Club

If you fancy scuba diving, the experts from Scuba4all are experienced PADI dive instructors who can organise diving courses or guided dives for you, providing a great opportunity for divers. Whether you are new to scuba diving or an experienced diver, Scuba4all can easily arrange all of this for you to guarantee a fantastic time.

Children will have an exciting opportunity for diving with the introductory Bubblemaker course. Whilst being under the watchful eye of a PADI dive instructor, this programme allows children between 8 - 10 years of age to experience the exhilaration of the underwater world. This course is held in a built-for-purpose swimming pool with a maximum depth of 2 metres and groups limited in size to a maximum of 2 children. Once the children are feeling comfortable, games will be held with rubber torpedoes, underwater frisbees, swimming through hoops and treasure hunting.

The Open Water is the most popular scuba diving course in the world. This course has been divided into 3 sections; knowledge development, training on confined water skills and 4 open water dives in the sea. You will practice your dives underwater at Scuba4all in a built-for-purpose swimming pool before you undertake open water dives in the sea, ensuring you master the skills needed. To take part in this course you must be capable of swimming a minimum of 200 metres and be able to tread water for 10 minutes. Becoming a PADI Open Water Diver gives you the opportunity to dive anywhere in the world up to a depth of 18 metres with another qualified diver. Junior Open Water Divers who are aged 10-12 years old have a maximum depth of 12 metres and must be accompanied by a PADI professional.

If you do not have enough time to finish the Open Water course then you still have the opportunity to become a Scuba Diver, which is the entry level diver qualification issued by PADI. You must be over 10 years of age to enrol for this course and it will take you two or three days to complete it. This course is split into three sections; knowledge development, training on confined water skills training and two open water dives in the sea. The real benefit you will gain from completing the Scuba Diver course is that you will be qualified to dive anywhere in the world up to a depth of 12 metres, whilst under the supervision of a PADI professional.

Please note that the Spanish Authorities do not allow anyone under the age of 16 to learn from the Open water or Scuba Diver courses; this mainly due to diving in the sea.

Local law states that divers should have a medical check-up every 2 years, so you will be required to complete the PADI medical statement. This will apply whether you book a full certification course or just a simple diving trip.

To make sure you are covered for any accidents whilst scuba diving you must also have personal insurance. If you already have your own travel insurance then please bring it with you because it is required to be checked so you are covered for scuba diving. If you do not have any insurance that covers you for diving then this can easily be arranged for you. This applies again to whether you are taking out a full course or just a guided dive.
