PADI Courses

We offer the full range of PADI courses. As seasoned, professional, competent instructors we understand the needs of new students. On our travels around the world, we have witnessed poor Dive education first hand and realize the need for excellent tuition standards.


What can you expect?

At Octopus we offer realistic training, a PADI certification needs to be earned and not just handed out. Therefore we will work with you to ensure you understand the course material and master all skills necessary for your safety and a lifetime of fun in the water.

Where will you study?

Your confined session takes place in Grand Case Bay

Your confined session takes place in Grand Case Bay

All classroom work is done at the dive shop. With a relaxed and quiet ambiance it is the perfect atmosphere for learning this amazing and life changing sport.

The Confined Open Water dives take place just a one minute walk from the dive shop, in the crystal clear water of Grand Case Bay. In the unlikely event that the bay is too rough, we have access to a beautiful pool in Terres Basse.

Your Open Water dives all take place at our two house reefs – Creole Rock (part of the national marine reserve) and Sec de Grand Case. The water is always calm, visibilty 50 – 100 feet and minimal current ensures you will have a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Just take a look at our gallery to see what you will experience on your four open water dives. We get turtles, Eagle Rays, Southern Rays and of course all the reef fish one would expect in a National Marine Reserve.
