Thank you for your interest in SCUBA DIVING – a healthy outdoor sport. Our company has been in the recreational diving industry for the past TWENTY five year and training divers with the top agencies and inhouse concepts and syllabus to make a safe and superb scuba diver out of you. We do the entry to Instructor level education, both for recreational and technical diving programmes.

The Basic Diver course, like non other, comprises theory lessons, pre-pool & pool training sessions and finally, an open sea trip consisting of four training dives. This course aims to prepare students to dive safely and have a full understanding of the sport. Unlike other dive facilities and agencies, Friendly Waters offers the industry’s most prestigious diver education label.

Our SCUBA DIVING INTERNATIONAL (SDI) programme stands out as one of the most comprehensive and effective training course to-date.

We offer the most convenient transfer to the Southern islands with impecable safety records. Records shows that we train hundreds of divers every year, all of who are out there enjoying every moment of their dives.
