Skin Diver

The PADI Skin Diver course enables participants to enter the underwater world without requiring the use of a scuba diving tank.


Prerequisites

In order to enroll in the PADI Skin Diver course, you need to be at least 8 years old and be able to swim.


Course Structure

The PADI Skin Diver course is made up of three sections – knowledge development, confined water training and an optional open water dive.

During the knowledge development section of the course, you will participate in a discussion with your instructor, and will become familiarized with the equipment and techniques you will use during your course.

The confined water training will take part in a swimming pool or confined open water environment. You will be required to have your own mask, fins and snorkel for this. During the confined water training, you will be introduced to various skills that you need to use during your skin diving adventures.

When you undergo the open water training, you will go out skin diving in the sea with your instructor. In addition to completing the same skills you learned during your confined water training, you will also tour the dive site and become more familiar with some of Qatar’s aquatic creatures. You’re going to love it!

Once you have completed all three sections of the Skin Diver course, you will receive a temporary Skin Diver certification card, which you can start using right away! You will receive your permanent card about 30-45 days after you have been certified.


Required Equipment

You will be required to have your own mask, fins and snorkel for the duration of the course.
