We are a PADI 5 star IDC Centre, what does this rating mean?

A PADI Five Star Dive Center Membership is awarded to progressive PADI Dive Shops that excel in providing scuba divers with a full range of scuba certification programs, scuba gear selection, and scuba experience opportunities.

PADI 5 star instructor development centre

To qualify as PADI Five Star Dive Center, a dive shop must meet elevated service and business standards and both promote and offer only PADI scuba diving lessons as their recreational scuba diver training.

These dive shops also actively promote underwater environmental awareness and embrace the PADI System of diver education, with a commitment to providing quality training, products, services and experiences.

What does this mean to you, as a diver?

As a diver, or a diver student you can be assured that you will receive the highest level of service and diver training. All of our staff are committed to offering the best personalized service possible to all of our guests, regardless of level of experience.

Crystal Waves dive staff are knowledgeable and professional, they will go out of their way to make your dive experience as memorable as possible.

Crystal Waves courses are taught to a very high standard, and our crew are more than happy to spend extra time if needed, to help you over come little problems during training. Once your course is completed, you will walk away knowing that you have mastered all the skills and knowledge required to have earned that new diver certification.

Courses are paid for, certifications are earned!

In keeping with our PADI 5 Star centre rating, we also offer the most up to date training methods, training materials and certification processing.

Training material, aka “student manuals” As you are already here, “elearning” is not really a option. During your course we will loan you a up to date Padi paper manual, but on completion we will give you either the “eManual” electronic manual that is available online, or the “Touch manual” if you have a ipad! It is a requirement that all students have their own copy of the training manual to keep!

Certifications, once your course is completed we will certify you online. A couple of minutes filling out the online form, and bam you are certified! You will receive a email from Padi within minutes, congratulating you on your success of completing the course. Within an hour, you will be listed on the Padi Diver check list with your new certification level, and of course you will receive your cert card in the mail within ten days of completion.
