An offer with 4 stars.

Professionals are in place and the entire four days are optimally planned. I have to deduct one point because my English skills failed when it came to the technical terms. Thanks to google translator and some other participants, I was able to happily overcome the language hurdle.

Ein Angebot mit 4 Sternen.

Profis sind am Platze und die gesamten vier Tage sind optimal geplant. Ein Pünktchen muss ich abziehen, da bei den Fachbegriffen meine Englischkenntnisse versagten. Dank google-Translator und einigen anderen Teilnehmern konnte ich die Sprachhürde glücklich meistern.

Finally time to learn to dive

I have been retired for 4 months. My first activity as a pensioner: I wanted to learn how to dive. With the online preparation and the offline experience on Elba, my plan worked. Of course, you are not an experienced diver after the four days. But I now know what it's all about. It's my new hobby!

Endlich Zeit zum Tauchen lernen

Seit 4 Monaten bin ich pensioniert. Meine erste Aktivität als Rentner: Ich wollte Tauchen lernen. Mit der online-Vorbereitung und dem offline-Erlebnis auf Elba hat mein Plan funktioniert. Natürlich ist man nach den vier Tagen kein erfahrener Taucher. Doch ich weiß jetzt, worum es geht. Es ist mein neues Hobby!

PADI Open Water Diver Course - Good & Affordable

For my holiday on Elba, I really wanted to do a "real" diving course this time (not just a taster course). It was important to me that the course or the instructor had a PADI certification. In my opinion, PADI stands for quality → I was very impressed.


The four days fulfilled all my expectations. I successfully completed my PADI certificate. PS: The price for the four days is very fair. I have found comparable offers for twice the price....

PADI Open Water Tauchkurs – Gut & Preiswert

Für meinen Elba-Urlaub wollte ich diesmal unbedingt einen „richtigen“ Tauchkurs machen (nicht nur Schnupperkurs). Dabei war mir wichtig, dass der Kurs bzw. der Tauchlehrer eine PADI-Zertifizierung hat. Meiner Ansicht nach steht PADI für Qualität →


Die vier Tage erfüllten alle meine Erwartungen. Ich habe mein PADI Zertifikat erfolgreich absolviert. PS: Der Preis für die vier Tage ist sehr fair. Ich habe vergleichbare Angebote für den doppelten Preis gefunden…

Good course, but diving will not be my new hobby

The course was well organized, but I had to realize: diving is not for me!

Guter Kurs, aber tauchen wird nicht mein neues Hobby

Der Kurs war gut organisiert, allerdings musste ich feststellen: Tauchen ist nichts für mich!

Great impressions, good course, friendly people

We also wanted to try it out and we really liked it. You have to get used to breathing underwater. It is best to practice pressure equalization in the dry. That was difficult at the beginning.

Tolle Eindrücke, guter Kurs, freundliche Leute

Wir wollten auch mal rein schnuppern und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. An das Atmen unter Wasser muss man sich erst gewöhnen. Am besten übt man im Trockenen auch noch den Druckausgleich. Das war zu Beginn schwierig.

Just right for beginners.

It was great and beautiful and we got great insights into the underwater world. It was a bit difficult for me to get into the neoprene suit. The instructor was very good with us beginners, especially since one of us was scared, he made a real effort.

Genau das Richtige für Anfänger.

Es war toll und schön und wir bekamen tolle Einblicke auch in die Unterwasserwelt. Bisschen schwierig wars für mich, in den Neopren-Anzug zu steigen. Der Tauchlehrer war sehr gut mit uns Anfängern, vor allem, weil einer von uns Angst hatte, hat er sich richtig bemüht.
