Dive Training

Get up close to the wonders of Vanuatu’s only marine sanctuary in a way that’s impossible by snorkel. From first time beginners who’d just like to try a dive to those who’d like to upgrade their current qualifications, we can help at the fully 5 Star PADI accredited Hideaway Island Dive shop.

Hideaway Island is a training centre with a difference. Located in a large, protected bay, offering perfect conditions for new divers of almost any age . Beginners acquire their skills surrounded by fish in the waist-deep, almost currentless waters right off the shore.

Below are some of the various courses Hideaway offers. It is also possible to take the theory portion of the course with PADI Elearning at home and complete the diving at Hideaway Island.

PADI eLearning

Why not maximise your time at Hideaway? With PADI eLearning you can complete the theory portion of your course online before you come…and get straight in the water when you arrive!

With PADI eLearning you’ll use videos, knowledge development presentations and quizzes to complete the independent study and then do a quick review here at Hideaway with our resident Instructor. This means less time in the classroom and more time to relax on the beach or in the water!

Once you’ve booked your course with us just click on the eLearning banner below to get started…
