We are a dual agency training center offering PADI and SSI courses.

Oceanic Dive Center (formerly a PADI 5 Star IDC center) now offers both SSI and PADI courses to our students. While our facilities and excellent standards have not changed, it is prohibited to hold PADI's "5 Star" name while also offering SSI courses (or any other training agency). We offer dive courses in several languages from the beginning level (Open Water Diver) to professional level (Divemaster). We also arrange try dives (Discover Scuba Diving). If you're unsure of whether to choose PADI or SSI, we can advise you, based on your own experience and expectations.


Specialty courses and continuing education.

We can also provide courses such as snorkeling courses and speciality dive courses such as deep diving, wreck diving, night diving, underwater photography etc. Our instructors have a wide variety of diving specialities: feel free to ask.

Most dive courses you can have any time of the year. We will try to meet your special requests.
