The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is designed to offer different experience and training options – from simple underwater activities to more challenging extra depth experiences. If you are looking to start building your diving resume, this course is for you.
As the name suggests, the PADI Dive Master Course is for those seeking to become professional scuba divers. In this program, expect to expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level.
Their Rescue Diver is designed to equip you with the skills you need to help prevent, and if necessary, manage dive emergencies – both minor and major, with a variety of different techniques.
True many divers take the Emergency First Response course so they can be allowed to enrol for other courses. However, most have also found the EFR program to be important in everyday life as it deals with emergency preparedness.
Who has not been captivated by seal teams in movies and on TV? Aqua Wild Africa has its own PADI Seal Team program for young divers, who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool by doing exciting scuba Aqua Missions.
The PADI Bubblemaker Experience is another great way to introduce your kids to scuba diving in a safe pool environment.
Reviews by Aqua Wild Africa fans
“Thanks to Daniele and Annie for a fantastic trip. I only had 3 days to dive but I was in safe hands. I said I liked wrecks sharks and reefs and that’s what I got. The itinerary was written around what I wanted to do not the normal sausage factory attitude with we always do this dive on Monday take it or leave it scenarios. Fantastic service even taking time to ensure the non-diving wife was entertained. I can’t recommend Aqua Wild Africa enough,” wrote Kevthediver on their TripAdvisor page.
Gillian Kaspers added; “We have acquired not only an experience but a family. whether you are a resident in SA or visiting, a newbie to diving or snorkelling, Daniele and Annie always give you an amazing time. Well Done guys.”
