The bay is ideal for all levels of diving as it offers the diver entry from shore, with a natural buffer to the prevailing currents, and has a gradual sloping bottom topography that slowly slips away towards the start of the shelf. The proximity to the continental shelf allows extraordinary shore and boat dives, where beginners can enjoy the shallow sites of the house reef, optimal water temperature and great visibility. The wall along the bay offers more challenging diving with awesome topography including vertical drop-offs, colourful pinnacles, swim-through’s and caves.
One privilege of diving at Nuarro is that there are only the lodge divers on the reefs. So, you get the whole reef to yourself and dive times are usually dictated by air supply not the need to get back for the next boat of divers.
Do you want to take an open water dive course with us but don’t want to spend hours of your holidays in the classroom? PADI’s eLearning® is perfect for you!
The open water dive course involves video-theory, quizzes and exercises that you can now complete at home, leaving you more time to enjoy your holiday. It is important to point out that you don´t necessarily save on costs but you do save on holiday time! Even if you are not here at Nuarro, we will be available online to answer any questions you may have and we will go through key points upon your arrival.
How does it work?
After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning® system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
What else is required to complete the course?
Prior to certification as a PADI Open Water Diver, you’ll come to Nuarro Activity Center to complete your training. You'll take a short eLearning Quick Review to confirm your understanding of safety-related material from the course and you must successfully complete five confined water dives and four open water training dives with our PADI Instructor.
Are the requirements for PADI e-learning and the certification the same as in a regular classroom?
