The most common question – How much will the course cost?
Cost will vary greatly depending on what is included. Be wary of “cheap” courses. With proper training, diving is a safe activity but there are risks involved. We advice you not to shop around for the cheapest, quickest course you can find. Look for quality training that will make you a safe, competent diver and be sure to find out what is included in your course.
