Private Scuba Lessons
A Safe, Great Way To Learn To Dive
Private scuba lessons or semi-private lessons are a great way to learn if you live here in British Columbia or are coming here for a dive holiday and only have a limited amount of time.
Who needs to spend time in a PADI scuba diving school when you can hire a professional diving instructor, divemaster, dive buddy and Vancouver area scuba safari guide (all one person), and be able to obtain your PADI certification/Scuba license on your own schedule.
Private scuba lessons in British Columbia are also a great way to earn your dry suit certification in one afternoon of diving.
For this kind of personalized service, knowledge of some of British Columbia’s best dive locations, safety-first attitude, and affiliation with local dive shops, we recommend Mark Leichnitz of Vancouver Scuba Diving School for private or semi-private dive courses in the Vancouver area.
Book through CoolDives and you will also get a free, customized, personal DVD capturing your dives here in British Columbia.
A few samples of his underwater videography work where you'll see some of what makes British Columbia the best place to dive in the world are on his Vancouver Scuba Diving School website.
When added to our other recommended British Columbia private or semi-private dive license options on the Sunshine Coast, Courtenay/Comox and Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, and certification for divers with disabilities in Vancouver, there is no better place, way or time to learn how to scuba dive or refresh/improve your dive skills than with private scuba lessons in BC.
Whether you are in British Columbia by yourself, with a spouse or friend, or with a small group, having your own personal dive instructor is worth thinking about.
A private scuba instructor can offer:
- flexible dive schedule (any day of the week, subject to availability)
- a variety of local dive sites to choose from
- PADI Adventure dives (night dives, deep dives, wall dives and wreck dives). Work toward your Advanced Open Water certification!
- pre-dive assistance to assemble your gear (rentals and discount-priced gear purchases)
- return ground transport - pick up and drop off at your Vancouver hotel or residence
- rental gear returned to supplier on your behalf
- air and weights
- and a custom dvd movie of your dive trip
This is a great way to obtain your scuba license, receive a free dvd of your lessons, and have a dive buddy all at the same time.
