Diving The Crab was established in 1985 when the first school was opened at Jadini Beach Hotel. Since then we have concentrated all our efforts in providing a professional and dedicated service to our clients. As a result our reputation is known worldwide. We are extremely privileged to be operating on Kenya's south coast, where the Idyllic Indian Ocean provides warm hospitable waters, teeming with marine life. Often on our way to dive sites the boat will slow down to play with a school of friendly dolphins or the gentlest of giants, the whale shark.

The main base is located at "The Sands at Nomad" on Diani Beach.

PADI Bubblemaker

Bubblemaker offers an easy and enjoyable introduction to the magic of underwater breathing.

It makes a perfect transition step for children. They can go from watching their parents or older siblings enjoying SCUBA diving, to learning how themselves. No worries though, any age is welcome to participate.

For children ages 8+, this course gets them below the surface and blowing bubbles in a fun filled 1 to 1 ½ hours. After watching an engaging 30 minute video called “PADI - Discover Scuba Diving,” a PADI certified instructor covers safety considerations in a comfortable way for children. The small class then puts the lessons into practice in water less than 6 feet deep. Safety is the priority.

Students learn how to swim with fins, use a mask, and take their first breaths underwater.

Once the class starts “blowing bubbles” with ease, the instructor will carefully lead them through cool tricks to keep their excitement and interest up. They could be playing frisbee, swimming like a dolphin, or learning to swim upside down while down under!

Aside from great memories, each participant gets a prize to mark their new skills: a sharp looking PADI certificate.

The dive center provides all the necessary gear: mask, snorkel fins, wet-suit if required, tank, weights, vest, and regulator.

No special swimming skills are required. Anyone in good health, without a cold or ear infection, is welcome to sign up today!

PADI Discover Sucba Diver

DSD typically takes a day, involves some instruction and some diving.

PADI Open Water Certification

PADI's Open Water Certification unlocks an entire new world of exotic ocean adventures. Students from the Discover SCUBA Diving class will already have some of the skills for this course. Anyone in good health over the 10 years of age is eligible.

Advanced PADI certified instructors lead students through guides and videos explaining terms and concepts about the technical aspects of ocean diving. Following class room instruction, the students put the theory into practice with relevant pool dives. Skills build on each other. Eventually students learn about going as far as 130 feet under the surface, pre-dive safety practices, equipment check outs, and how to handle most diving challenges.

Students move through at least five pool dives and four local dives on their way to passing the certification test. The instructors role is to get students safely through the lessons until they are confident enough for exciting open ocean diving. Though fun and focused on making students comfortable underwater, this is a serious course that conveys and verifies defined skills on those that pass. Not everyone attains the level of competence required for safe open water diving. For this reason, gaining the PADI Open Water Certification is a cause for pride.

A big part of SCUBA revolves around equipment. Students learn about selecting masks, snorkels, fins, dive computers, dive gauges, wet suits, buoyancy vests, tanks, regulators and weight belts. The dive shop can rent all of the necessary gear. Instructors can also assist students with buying gear that improves their diving enjoyment and safety.

Class length varies by season and size. It can take as little as 2 intense days, or as long as 8 weeks depending on how many hours per day students can devote, along with access to suitable dive sites.

Gaining experience as an Open Water Certified diver often leads to a desire for more skills. Becoming an Advanced Open Water diver gives more knowledge and skills for enjoying SCUBA in a wider variety of more challenging conditions.

USD0.00

PADI - Advanced Open Water Certification

If PADI Open Water certification is like a standard driving license, then the Advanced Open Water (AOW) certification is sort of an off-road license. At a minimum, students gain underwater navigation skills, learn about deep water conditions, get introduced to more advanced dive computers and functions, plus learn several specialty skills of their choosing.

Specialties include photography, wreck diving, using underwater scooters, optimized buoyancy, and more. A total of 16 specialty skills to sample makes this a seriously exciting course!

One of the highlights for AOW students involves exploring the mysterious and murky world of night diving. Feel like a special forces commando while diving with only moonlight as your guide on the surface. Below the surface, and aided by submersible high intensity flashlights, the phosphorescent sea creatures give student's eyes a treat they have to see to believe!

Anyone who completes the Open Water certification (or equivalent from another organization) and is at least 15 years old, can sign up. Expect 5 dives with underwater navigation, deeper activities from 18-30 meters / 60-100 feet, plus 3 specialty introduction dives.

Despite the name, divers just out of the Open Water course enter the Advanced program routinely because it gives them more skills while earning hours for their log book.

There are both home study and in class books explaining theory, safety issues, and new skill exercises.

For the gear lovers, this course will definitely fit the bill. Everything from the basic scuba gear, to underwater compass, wreck diving tools, underwater photography equipment, DPV's (underwater scooters), dive lights, dry suits (for possible cold water diving), dive flags/floats or other optional equipment may be used. The dive center will have rentals available for each specialty.

Students with the Advanced Open Water certification gain confidence in their ability to navigate underwater, safely dive a wider variety of conditions, and go places they would have been hesitant to with only Open Water skills.

A great course for taking the diving excitement even farther..sign up today!

USD0.00

PADI - Rescue Diver

Adding the Rescue Diver certification shows the ability to overcome challenges and assist other divers in distress. This is one of the more intense courses available for anyone who has completed either the Adventure Diver or Advanced Diver Certification (or equivalent from another organization). A student must also have a current (less than 2 years old) First aid and CPR course certification.

PADI Rescue Diver crewpaks include materials needed for the course, such as pocket masks, instruction book and DVD. Specially trained PADI instructors guide students through advanced techniques for self-rescue, assessing and managing stress in other divers, emergency response and equipment issues, steps for rescuing divers, and assisting unresponsive divers.

Students will need basic scuba gear with a dive computer and accessories. All items will be available for rental or purchase at the dive center.

Once through the rigors of becoming a Rescue Diver, a new challenge awaits. Adding the Emergency Oxygen Provider Course certification elevates a student’s capabilities for assisting other divers.

These three courses - First aid and CPR, Rescue Diver, and Emergency Oxygen Provider - can turn a diver into the person who can potentially save another person's life. Sign up today and add a critical skill set to your diving repertoire.

SSI Try Scuba

Get wet, get underwater, and see if scuba diving is for you. Without a lot of theory, classroom time, or stress, students can be blowing bubbles beneath the surface and enjoying their first scuba experience. This session is a great option when someone is curious about diving, but not sure they want to commit for full certification. This session can also be a good way to keep children occupied with a specially trained scuba instructor teaching them scuba basics while their parents or siblings are out diving deep!

All the gear - masks, snorkels, fins, wet suit (if required), vest, tank, and regulator are included.

Instructors guide students through pool exercises, giving them a smooth, easy and quick introduction to scuba gear and how to use it.

Open to ages 8+. Usually takes around 2 hours depending on class size. Safety, fun, and introducing the excitement of diving are what it is all about.

When they realize how simple and cool it is to breathe underwater, students will want to sign-up for the next level: Open Water.

USD0.00

SSI Open Water

SSI Open Water is a certification recognized world wide and allows you to dive in the most common environments with a dive buddy. Covering both the important theory of underwater breathing challenges and activities imparting safe diving practices, students progress from novice to a comfortable skill level. Instructors review interesting diving manuals, DVD's and online training with students prior to pool or open water diving sessions.

All basic scuba gear is provided including: wet suit, buoyancy vest, tanks, regulator, gauges, fins, mask and snorkel.

Upon completion, students can rent equipment at most dive shops, dive in a wide variety of conditions, and dive about 30 meters or 100 feet deep. This means they can see most of the great diving sites around the world.

The class includes a total of at least 5 confined pool sessions with a minimum of 4 open water dives for passing the certification requirements. You need between 3 to 4 days to complete the course.

Requirements for entering the Open Water course include:

• Must be at least 12 years old

• In good health without a cold or ear infection

• Be ready to start the adventure of scuba!

Once as student passes through the Open Water course, they will often want to learn more about specialty diving skills such as nitrox, wreck diving, diver stress and rescue, or any of the 18 diving specialty sessions.
