Palawan El Nido Scuba Diving Refresher Course with Equipment, Tank & Weight Belt
Take a refresher scuba diving course in the pristine waters of El Nido, Palawan when you book this tour. This experience is perfect for certified divers who haven't practiced for over six months and want to see the underwater ecosystems of El Nido. This tour comes with the assistance of a divemaster and the use of equipment with a tank and a weight belt. Certified divers aged 15 and above can take this course.
To start your experience, head to Turtle Divers in El Nido to meet your divemaster. Don’t forget to bring your dive certification, as this is a requirement to take the course. You will be taught dive theories and take part in shallow water sessions where you will practice mask cleaning, out-of-air procedures, and other important dive skills. Once your Divemaster deems you ready, you will head to two dive sites, where you will dive at a maximum depth of 18 meters.
You have the option to choose which popular El Nido diving spot you want to explore after reviewing the basics. You can pick from the following dive sites: South Miniloc, Twin Rocks, West Entalula, Paglugaban Island, Popolkan Island, Helicopter Reef, Natnat Beach, and Address Reef. However, some of these sites may be unavailable on the day of your tour because of weather conditions, so have backup sites in mind.
The whole refresher course will take about four hours so you have ample time to practice your skills again. After you have completed all your dives, your divemaster will accompany you back to shore, where you can continue with your time in El Nido on your own.
Sharpen your scuba diving skills and know-how with this El Nido experience. Check the availability by choosing a date.
