PADI Courses

Do you want to become an independent scuba diver? If you want to learn equipment preparation, master your buoyancy and learn vital scuba diving skills then a PADI scuba diving course is for you.

Earning your PADI certification will allow you to dive around the world for reduced prices. If you are an open water scuba diver or above you can even rent or buy your own equipment and just go diving with your certified buddy! The PADI open water scuba diver course is the most popular diving course in the world, after completing this three day course you will be certified to dive independently to 18 meters!

At Leagues Ahead Diving all courses are taught in small and personal groups allowing you to master the skills in your own time. We understand that people learn at different paces so we are more than willing to spend the extra time with our students to make sure they fulfill all requirements for the chosen course.

Dives for certified divers

One of the dive sites that we recommend is situated in the coastal zone of Aguimes and is called El Cabron. Voted one of the top ten dive sites in Europe, the dive site El Cabron is an obligatory stop for all divers traveling to Gran Canaria. One of only three marine reserves in the Canary Islands it is home to a rich diversity of marine life including four hundred varieties of Flora and Fauna. Because of its marine reserve status, boat traffic nor commercial fishing are allowed in the area, allowing marine life to thrive.

The Arco Chico, Los Roncadores and Punta de la Sal are three of the ten dive routes available to dive at El Cabrón, with each different route catering for varying certification level. Every dive offers something different from caverns, swim-throughs, arches, and caves!

Qualified dives are only conducted in small and interpersonal groups ensuring you will be under the watchful eye of a PADI instructor or Divemaster for the duration of the dive.

Brand new CRESSI diving equipment and complimentary hotel transfers are included in all of our prices. Group diving packages can be arranged upon request!
