Take the plunge and learn together this summer with our range of family focused scuba diving
courses in the crystal clear waters of Elounda.
Learn to scuba dive together as a family this summer with Powder Byrne and choose between our three courses, 'Holiday Diver', 'Scuba Diver' and 'Open Water Diver'. Sessions will take place in the morning from Monday to Friday with enough time in the afternoon for your kids to attend our children's programmes or just spend time enjoying the resort as you please.
Where and When
Only a short ten minute drive from your accommodation, our resort team will transport you to and from your morning scuba diving sessions at the PADI Gold Palm dive school in Elounda. At the end of your sessions, we will be there to take you back to your resort for lunch and to spend the afternoon at your leisure, with the kids free to join our children's programmes.
Enjoy five days of discover scuba dive sessions in the Holiday Diver course. Dives will take place each morning depending on the conditions and consist of mainly shore dives with the potential to progress to boat dives. Holiday Diver involves a small amount of classroom theory during the first two days of the course.
Scuba Diver is a five day course, perfect for adventurous families, with 3 hours per day dedicated to a combination of shore dives, open water boat dives and three classroom theory sessions to achieve the International qualification 'Scuba Diver'. Theory material can be sent out for study pre-travel to cut down on classroom time in the dive centre.
Open Water Diver
Open Water Diver is a more advanced seven day course for families who are particularly keen on taking their scuba diving to the next level. Including a combination of shore dives, open water boat dives and five classroom theory sessions to achieve the International qualification 'Open Water Diver'. Theory material can be sent out for study pre-travel to cut down on classroom time in the dive centre.
Children must be able to swim to participate and ideally be at least 10 years old. The timing of the sessions can depend on weather conditions on the day. Family members can separately opt out and enjoy the resort whilst others participate. Prices for a family of four starts from £1,999 and includes transport, wetsuits and equipment.
