TIOMAN PACKAGE

PADI OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE

This is the mass market course conducted by most scuba dive shops and centres in Singapore. Unfortunately we have decided to stop marketing this course completely. We no longer want to put guests through a 10 hours gruesome bus/boat rides, adults sharing beds or sleeping in bunks beds, rushing students through this course and using 1 instructor to 8 students ratio.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE US

BY THE WAY, WE DO NOT PAY FOR REVIEWS AND NEITHER DO WE FORCE REVIEWS ON DIVERS

 

Prompt response: From initial enquiry to travel arrangement to PADI course details, Orpheus Dive has never failed to reply timely, even exceeding expectations!

Hassle-free & flexible to needs: Additional pool sessions requested for were arranged according to our schedules, all we had to do was to make payment. All other logistics arrangements were settled by Orpheus Dive, including the actual trip for PADI training and certification.

Patient & professional dive instructors: Had Lester, Hamish & Darwin train our group and they were very extremely professional in teaching the required skills. Special shout-out to Darwin who has been most patient, most encouraging, most kind to help learners overcome fears and anxiety. He even went the extra mile to take underwater photos and videos to serve as a motivational tool and of course, those were most helpful in the post-dive review sessions. Outstanding service through and through!

You teach with passion, you are very focus and analytic. You corrected my problems during the lesson. You took time to explain every single drills, you added new stuff to make the training fun. You go through again to make sure I understand. I think you are not just a instructor , but an amazing Teacher.

I want to say thank you to especially Michael & Darwin for tonight lesson.

Alan Fong

From zero to a certified advanced open water diver over one weekend, it would not be possible with the guidance from Michael and Nicholas, really, thank you very much for your help for this trip!

My sister and I have just recently completed our open water course with Orpheus. The class that we were in had a small ratio of 1 instructor to 3 students and our instructor, Nicholas Chow, was awesome! He was very patient throughout and ensured that each of us was able to carry out a specified task before moving onto next. I was also experiencing seasickness on the first day of the dive and Nicholas was quick to pass me ointments/seasick pills plus shared with me some very helpful tips on overcoming seasickness/equalization problems. Overall, I had a very enjoyable experience and felt safe throughout the course ( I would highly recommend Orpheus to everyone – thanks Orpheus!

I am Myopic. Can I dive?

Of course you can. There are two options for you. You can either choose to dive with daily disposal contact lens or you can opt to invest in a good pair of scuba diving mask with prescriptive lens

w

I am Claustrophobic. Is that gonna cause a problem?

If you think you are suffering from either agoraphobia or claustrophobia, we would suggest that you have a word with your doctor and inform us that you would like to have a 1 to 1 instructor for your own safety. But we have conducted courses for divers suffering from either conditions.

w

I am above 50 years old. Can I still dive?

There is no maximum age. As long as your medical clearance is done and your family doctor has certified you that you are fit for diving, then it will not be an issue. However, we might modify part of the training to suit your current needs.

w

I am really obese. Is that gonna be a problem?

Nope, not an issue at all. As long as your doctor signs on your medical form and have given you clearance to dive, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t

w

I am not a strong swimmer. Can I still dive?

As long as you are able to meet the pre-requisite, we do not see why not. However, if you have just picked up swimming and still have water confidence issues, we would suggest that you sign up for a 1 to 1 Instructor classes.

w

Can my children learn diving with me?

Yes, of course. As long as they are ten years old and older, and have met all the pre-requisite, we do not see why not. However, for children who are participating in a course, we do not allow a class bigger than 2 people in a group.
