SSI Courses

We are a fully functioning and licensed SSI dive centre ready to train you whether you want to try for the first time or obtain more qualifications as an experienced diver.

We have a flexible training programme to suit every itinerary, from one to five days courses depending on the time you have on Samos. You will receive an overview of diving, the equipment and how to basically use it. We will take you into the water and begin to introduce you to breathing through scuba for the first time and you will experience the feeling of gliding through the crystal clear underwater world of Samos!

Before you become a certified diver, you can start with the ‘Try Scuba’ course that will help you to enjoy your first under water trip with an instructor you can trust completely and will teach all required skills and become completely comfortable with the equipment you're using during your first underwater adventure.

You can also go on straight away to obtain your first diving certificate by choosing the ‘Open Water’ course. It gives you the opportunity to dive up to 18 meters all over the world and covers all the basics such as how to control yourself in the water, safety procedures and how to use the equipment. It usually lasts 5 days and you will need to give us about 3 hours of your time each day as well as read the manual (also online) and watch the associated videos and do a theory test.



Get your scuba diving certification started while on vacation and finish up when you get home!

‘Scuba Diver’ course is the perfect course for those who do not have time to complete an entire Open Water Diver Program. The content of this program represents about half of a complete scuba diving certification program (SSI Open Water Diver). You can then complete the second half and become a certified diver at another time, anywhere that is convenient for you.

This certificate entitles you to take part in dives under the direct supervision of a Dive Professional up to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet all over the world. When you decide to complete your Open Water Diver certification, the Scuba Diver Program can be fully credited to your training. This way you will not have to redo any part of the program twice. After a short skill update you can complete your Open Water Diver rating.

The next steps as a certificated diver will be to obtain the ‘Advanced Open Water’ certificate that builds on the knowledge you gained in the ‘Open Water’ course and certifies you to dive at 30 meters. The course includes the core elements of Deep Diving, Navigation and Night Diving.

Further SSI courses that you may do with us is the ‘Deep Diving’, ‘Night & Limited Visibility’, ‘Wreck Diving’, ‘Boat Diving’, ‘Navigation’, ‘Perfect Buoyancy’, ‘Waves, Tides & Currents’, ‘Underwater Photography, ‘Emergency First Response (EFR)’.
