When is the best season to come to Lanzarote?

Lanzarote is declared UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where you will find an incredible mix of Mediterranean, Atlantique and Caribbean sea critters. Also known as the “Black pearl of the Atlantique Ocean”, the Island is an explosion of good vibes: from the oceanic waters to the top of volcanic mountains,Lanzarote is the perfect location for those who practice ourdoor activities, art lovers and nature enthusiasts.The destination is relatively close to EU with reasonable offers and costs to fly over here.
Canary Islands are often referred to as the “Islands of the Eternal Springs” and Lanzarotelocated between the windier north and the sunnier south, can be said to have the most moderate climate of the archipelago. Thewarm weatheris all-year round with sunny summers normally between 25-30 °C; winters are also warm and the temperature is still often between 17 and 22°C.
The very emblematic marine species is the Angel Shark, but Stingray, Moray and Grouper are common, too. Shoals of bream, parrot fish and barracuda can be seen while admiring invertebrates as octopus well-camouflaged with the diversity of the sea bottom or beautiful nudibranch are strolling around volcanic rocks.Canary Islands are the most important destination for cetacean watching.
Lately Lanzarote has increased its popularity thanks to the Atlantic Museum, the first underwater Museum in Europe, designed with a conservationist approach to generate an artificial reef where art meets nature.


FAQ GoPro



• Can help out the day-by-day dive operations during my GO PRO PACKAGE?
YES The main reason you are choosing to start your career with PADI is no doubt because, like us, you love diving and we expect you to dive, help out the dive operation and learn as much as you can throughout your GO PRO PACKAGE / MSDT INTERNSHIP.


• ACCOMMODATION during my GO PRO PACKAGE?
WE will advise you according to your needs and preferences. We have the option to offer you an accommodation in the apartment of our staff, find a hotel, a room or an apartment.

• How long will my GO PRO PACKAGE/IDC take?
The whole IDC program takes 16 days, which includes the Emergency First Response and Care for Children Instructor courses, a review of your Open Water Course diving skills and a review preparation to upgrade your Divemaster dive theory knowledge to the level required to pass the IE.
This is longer than other IDCs but ensures that the days are short and relaxed, giving you plenty of time to prepare your own presentations or go diving, go surfing/kite-surfing or just relax in our lovely beaches. After you have completed the IDC you will attend the PADI I.E, which is normally spread over 2 days.

• How big will my IDC class be?
We are always aiming at giving our candidates the best possible experience and that includes small groups of usually maximum EIGHT candidates per Course Director, which ensures you get the personal service you are paying for.

• Will I pass my IE?
We are so confident you will pass your IE after completing one of our IDCs that we will NOT charge you for attending the necessary elements of a second IDC in the unlikely event you are unsuccessful.
In this case, accommodation, transportation, visas, diving and food will be for your expenses. PADI will charge you to re-sit I.E. segments.

• Can I take Specialty Instructor Training Courses after my IDC/IE?
YES, we strongly recommend it !!! Being able to teach specialty courses gives you the chance to pursue your own interests and definitely makes you more employable. We offer wide range of specialties, including the popular Deep, Night, Search and Recovery, Drift diver, Multilevel, Emergency Oxygen Provider and Wreck diver.
The PADI Specialties Sidemount diver, Enriched Air diver and Dive Propulsion Vehicle diver have different prices and extra costs and are taught on demand. Our Master SCUBA Diver Trainer Preparation Program is designed to be totally flexible and run alongside your OPTIONAL two to six week internship and includes the chance to earn your first student certifications. MSDT Preparation includes FIVE PADI Specialty Instructor Training Courses and their appropriate dives (among Deep, Night, Search and Recovery, Drift diver, Multilevel, Emergency Oxygen Provider and Wreck diver).
You can apply to PADI to become a MSDT Instructor once you have attained 25 student certifications at any level.
The main benefit to you as a PADI Instructor is that you can vary your work from teaching “main-spine” courses and programs and learn more teaching commissions. Specialty Diver certifications are essential if you intend to become a DSAT Tec Deep / TEC Sidemount Instructor or PADI Master Instructor/Course Director. Many employers insist on MSDT as a minimum rating in order to be considered for a job position. If taught by a PADI Course Director, you may begin certifying specialty divers immediately after paying to PADI the Specialty Instructor processing fees and receive the authorization from your PADI office, rather than waiting until you have certified 25 divers first.
ADI application fees are also MUCH cheaper if you attend specialty courses with a PADI Course Director.
Additionally, only 10 logged specialty dives are required per rating, rather than 20. Please see our IDC PLATINUM package
Once you pass the IE you will be qualified to teach all core PADI courses (e.g. Discover SCUBA Diving, Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver, Rescue Diver and Divemaster) as well as the following specialties: Peak Performance Buoyancy, Project AWARE and AWARE Coral Reef Conservation. These three specialties do not count towards the five required for MSDT.

• Can I team teach with experienced instructors at LANZAROTE NON STOP DIVERS after my IDC to get experience?
Yes! We offer all our Platinum package candidates a free UP to six weeks internship and for Gold package candidates a free two week internship where you can work alongside our experienced instructors gaining further valuable real world teaching tips (with the chance to earn your first certifications).
How much does it cost?
We offer 4 different IDC packages to suit most candidate’s needs:
IDC e-Learning Package
IDC e-Learning Gold Package
IDC e-Learning Platinum Package
I would strongly advise you to exercise caution when comparing prices from different Instructor Development Centers. Be absolutely sure what is and is not included and please be aware that quality rarely comes cheaply!

• Which Dive Equipment will i need during the IDC?:
Complete SCUBA Equipment plus PADI requires you to have the following additional equipment: pocket mask; snorkel; whistle; compass; dive knife; Surface Marker Buoy; and timing device with seconds displayed as some skills are precisely 30 or 60 seconds (a dive computer is OK only if one can see seconds in dive mode or if dive mode can be disabled, otherwise a cheap waterproof watch is fine). You may wish to bring your own dive lights as night dives are available.

• How do I get to Lanzarote Island?
It’s really easy! Lanzarote is one of the main touristic island of the Canaryan Archipelago and has an international airport (ACE). We can arrange private transfers from the airport to Playa Blanca, if you wish (15 euros p/ person)

• What else I should know?
Medical Clearance You will need to have a current, unqualified medical certificate completed and signed by an independent doctor, confirming they find no conditions they consider incompatible with diving. I would strongly recommend that you obtain this before you come and e-mail it to me for verification. Please find attached the current version of the preferred format in English.
We are happy to send you this in another language if you wish. It must be completed no more than 12 months prior to the final day of your IE or PADI will not allow you to participate in the water sessions.

• What are the prerequisite certifications?:
I should be grateful if you would please e-mail me copies of both sides of all your non-PADI certifications as this is required by PADI to process your applications. Please also let me have your full name and date of birth so I may verify any PADI qualifications online. For your Instructor Applications, I need you send me copies of:
# Open Water or equivalent (must be at least six months’ old);
# Advanced Diver or equivalent;
# Rescue or equivalent
# Primary Care (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation—CPR) & Secondary Care (First Aid) valid within 24 months;
#Leadership level – Divemaster;
# Medical statement valid for 12 months and signed by physician (can not be the candidate).

• Dive Theory Exams
The IE has a Dive Theory Exams segment. The entire curriculum for this used to be covered on the Divemaster course. However, this has been slimmed down relatively recently and no longer suffices. My preferred resource for you to prepare with before your arrival is PADI’s Diving Knowledge Workbook, which is shipped with the PADI Instructor Crew-pack. This contains a chapter for each topic, being Physics, Physiology, Equipment, Skills & the Environment and Decompression Theory & the PADI Recreational Dive Planner (RDP). Each chapter consists of questions with worked answers. PADI’s Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving is excellent to dip into for further information and is shipped with the PADI Divemaster Crew-pack. You must possess an original RDP table and electronic multilevel eRDPml, together with both Instructions for Use booklets, which again contain worked examples.
If you have a learning disability and have a letter documenting this from your doctor (or psychologist), then you will be allowed 50%extra time to complete your written exams.
Please note that, apart from our pre-IDC preparation days, dive theory is NOT taught as part of the PADI IDC – though it’s thoroughly reviewed. If you took the new curriculum or maybe it was a long time since you took the old Divemaster course, we can give you some tips and suggestions to enable you to study and get your theory in shape before the IDC. Just let me know. I offer you support online by skype or e-mail on demand at pre agreed time between us.

• General informations
Please bring some passport photos with you (no hat, dark glasses or SCUBA mask and not underwater).
You will need a LAPTOP computer, amongst other things, to read digital versions of the PADI Instructor Manual and PADI’s Guide to Teaching, which are necessary for the PADI Systems, Standards and Procedures Examination, one of your IE segments. From experience, I wouldn’t recommend a tablet!
Please send me a copy/proof of a log book page documenting you have done at least 100 dives as this is also a prerequisite.
Another great tip is starting your studies well in advance. I strongly advise you DIVE THEORY online (question on purchasing, just contact me), The Enciclopedia Of Recreational Diving along with The Diving Knowledge workbook AND remake all OLD Divemaster Course (prior 2009) exams.

• When is the best season to come to Lanzarote?
Diving in Lanzarote means discovering a uniquely diverse mix of tropical and Mediterranean marine life.
You may find shoals of fish in open water or sheltering in coral covered undercuts in volcanic walls alongside lazily hovering in and around local wrecks.
Lanzarote is a location designed to bring fascinating experiences and discoveries to all tourists and watersports lovers. It is a peaceful country with a “No Stress” atmosphere and friendly people. It’s location is relatively close to EU with reasonable offers and costs to fly over here. There is also opportunity to enjoy beauties of each island of the Archipelago as well as enjoying other outdoor activities like surfing, kite-surfing, fishing, trekking and snorkeling. We Must also mention it’s a “winter free” country.
There is no heavy rainy season in Lanzarote and we therefore dive all year round in most of the islands. During the winter (January-March) humpback and occasionally sperm whales visit the islands on their annual migrations, occasionally manta rays, sting rays, eel morays, different species of turtles, nurse, sand tiger and lemon sharks and large shoals of fish are year round attractions.
During Summer (June – November) is the mating season for the local turtles and these may be encountered underwater or on the beaches at night when they come ashore to lay down their eggs.
The underwater world of Lanzarote also offers caves (lava tunnels), deep volcanic walls and some ship wrecks and tremendous abundance and variety of marine life. While you’re here, why not become a PADI Speciality Instructor? Please see our website schedule setting out our IDC dates for 2017-2018.

Who should take this course?


Love scuba diving? Want to share it with others on a whole new level? Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career.

Working closely with a PADI Instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills, like perfecting the effortless hover, and refine your rescue skills so you anticipate and easily solve common problems. You’ll gain dive knowledge, management and supervision abilities so you become a role model to divers everywhere.
As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll lead others as you supervise scuba diving activities and assist with diver training. Whether you want to work at a faraway dive destination or close to home at a local dive shop, the adventure of a lifetime awaits you. PADI Divemasters are respected dive professionals who are aligned with the largest and most respected dive organization in the world – PADI.

Assistant Instructor

Who should take this course?


If you like people, have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life – become a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy – being in, around and under water. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and PADI Assistant Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they’ve completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you’re rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others – transforming their lives for the better and enriching yours.
Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then Go PROSM with an Instructor Development Course.
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.
Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.
Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor.
A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months may enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course. You also need:
• At least 60 logged dives and 100 dives to attend an IE.
• Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months.
• A medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months
You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor, but you can earn this rating during your instructor training.

What will you learn?


Over a minimum of five days, but usually more like seven, the IDC teaches you to conduct all PADI core courses. You’ll be able to organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives. Basically, you become a better public speaker and get really good at demonstrating skills while watching out for student diver safety. Key topics include:
• PADI Standards and Procedures for courses you can teach with in water workshops
• Learning, Instruction and the PADI System
• Risk Management and Diver Safety
• The Business of Diving and your role as an instructor
• Marketing Diving and Sales Counseling
You may be able to get college credit or the Assistant Instructor course and Instructor Development Course.

What’s an IE?
An Instructor Examination (IE) is a two-day evaluative program that tests an instructor candidate’s teaching ability, dive theory knowledge, skill level, understanding of the PADI System, and attitude and professionalism. PADI IEs are standardized and conducted by specially trained PADI Instructor Examiners. The IE location, testing environment and examination sessions are organized to be as objective as possible to fairly and consistently evaluate a candidate’s abilities. Only those who meet the IE performance requirements earn the respected PADI Instructor certification. There is a fee for attending an IE.
