Diving Courses

Basic Beginner Courses

The course program is structured according to the most “user-friendly” training system in the world. Every year, diving centers use this program to qualify over a million divers worldwide according to the “easy to difficult” principle, from shallow to deep water.

Upon completing the course, you will be certified by SDI, an international diving organization and you will be able to dive in every diving center in the woirld, regardless to the organization they work with.

This method establishes solid foundations at each stage and ensures maximum safety. Every day includes two dives and one classroom lesson with modern audio-visual presentations and DVD movies. The basic stages are held in a friendly environment in the diving center’s private diving pool, in a manner that greatly facilitates the introductory stages and creates ideal training conditions for the participants before they advance to diving in the sea later on.

As an Isrotel owned diving center, we are committed to provide the highest service level and offer: a top-quality facility that includes spacious common grounds, pleasant changing rooms and a sauna, hot-meals cafeteria, coffee shop and a range of air-conditioned classrooms equipped with state-of-the-art multimedia instruments.

This facility is considered as one of the best dive-training facilities in the world and is the best of its kind in Israel.

With excellent training and comfortable accommodations, rest assure that you are purchasing the perfect product that will enhance your unique diving experience.
