Our motto is, “the more training, the better”  and Temple Adventures follows that to the very core.

Temple Adventures is a dive school that has been around for over 35 years and our experienced instructors know what works best for each student. This is why our PADI Open Water Courses run over 3 days with one full day in the pool, so that each student can have enough time to build up their skills with confidence.

We believe that ‘practice makes perfect’ which is why if at the end of a pool session the student is unsatisfied, they can do it again, free of charge and as many times as they need, to build up their confidence. The same unlimited training offer applies for the Open Water session, where the student can re-do their ocean skills until the student and the instructor are fully satisfied.

The safety of our students and our staff is top priority; we do not take shortcuts and do not charge any extra fees.

 

Course information

Knowledge Development

Scuba diving is an exciting sport but in order for it to be a safe and enjoyable experience, there are certain rules and regulations that every scuba diver must follow.

Prior to the pool and ocean sessions, students have to complete the PADI Online Training, where you will learn all about the physics and physiology of scuba diving and how it affects the body.

PADI eLearning allows you to complete the theory online at your own pace and convenience.

While the PADI eLearning material is self-explanatory and easy to follow, we do understand that students may still have questions and that is completely okay! We are trained professionals who are here to help you through every step of becoming a scuba diver.

 

In-Water Sessions

The PADI Open Water Diver course is completed over 3 days, with one day in the pool and the other two days in the ocean. A general schedule would look like:

 

Day 1: Pool Session

Our pool sessions is where you will learn to master all your scuba diving skills. From basic to slightly more complex skills, your assigned instructor will make sure you complete these skills in a stress-free manner.

Your instructor will take you through every skill set step by step till you are familiarised and comfortable enough to perform the skill.

Pool sessions start during the day and can take up a good few hours depending on the pace and progress of each student.

 

Day 2: Open Water Dives (1&2)

After you are done with your pool session, to yours and your instructor’s satisfaction, it is now time to test your skills in open waters. You will be doing 2 open water dives, where you have to perform a set of skills during each dive.

The fun part is that after you are done with your skills you will still have enough time to explore the underwater world and experience what it is like to go scuba diving!

After you are done with the two dives, you will head back to the dive shop where we will guide you on how to wash and store the scuba gear as it is an important aspect of being a good scuba diver.

 

Day 3: Open Water Dives (3&4)

You are two more dives away from becoming a PADI certified scuba diver! You will notice your progress as a scuba diver and see that these two dives will be a lot easier as you would have gained more confidence.

Like Day 2, you will be required to wash and store the scuba gear and also finish up any pending paper work with your instructor.

*It is important to keep in mind that scuba diving is heavily dependant on the weather. Temple Adventures reserves the right to change dive locations and/or times to better suit the prevailing weather conditions for an enjoyable scuba diving experience.
