OVERVIEW BAHIANUS COURSES
Are you fascinated by the underwater world and have you always wanted to learn how to dive yourself?
You’ve come to the right place!
As I.A.C. and CMAS instructors we train according to internationally recognised guidelines (EN14153-2 / ISO 24801-2). With your licence acquired from us, you can practise your new leisure sport worldwide.
Before starting the course, a medical examination is necessary, with which your doctor certifies that you are fit for diving.
You have never been diving before, but would like to get to know the underwater world around Lanzarote? Then the trial dive is the right choice for you: small groups of maximum 3 people per instructor. Short theoretical briefing. Starting directly from the beach of a small sheltered bay, no waves, no currents. A few small exercises in shallow water and your diving adventure begins: colourful, subtropical fish, rocky reefs and everything right in front of your mask. Maximum diving depth: 10 metres. Duration: with dressing and instruction approx. 3 hours.
Junior Open Water Diver
With us, diving starts for adventurers from the age of 12. After a detailed briefing we start the first dive in a small, sheltered bay. Maximum of three students per instructor. On a total of four dives, some exercises are completed and lots of practical diving experience is gained. Time frame: approx. 3-4 mornings or afternoons. Short theoretical examination in multiple choice. Conclusion with logbook and certification. Prerequisite: valid medical health certificate and proof of swimming ability.
Open Water Diver / CMAS*
It all starts with the beginner course, the I.A.C. Open Water Diver or CMAS* course. The first step into a completely new world: the sea – endless expanses. Here you will learn all the important basic terms and rules about diving. You learn a lot of new things about your organism, the effect of pressure and gases on your body and which physical laws apply under water. You acquire technical knowledge about your diving equipment and learn how to survive in a completely foreign element and discover new things. After the first steps in the pool, it is soon time for the so-called open water: the Atlantic Ocean awaits you with its multitude of exotic animals.
After completion of the diving course, you will receive an I.A.C. card “Open Water Diver” or a CMAS diving certificate as proof of your achievements.
Now nothing stands in the way of pure diving pleasure.
