PADI FAQs

Why should I choose Frontier?

Frontier is a registered PADI Educational Facility (s32482) and employs a Dive Officer (trained to Dive Instructor level) and a Divemaster at most marine camps.

 

Scuba diving is an amazing experience wherever you try it but working on a marine conservation project with Frontier enables you to explore some of the top dive sites of the world. From diving with reef fish, dolphins and sharks in Madagascar to discovering sea turtles and manta rays whilst scuba diving in Fiji or finding yourself diving alongside immense whale sharks in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. There's a whole new world to explore as you delve beneath the ocean's surface.

 

What if I've never dived before?

If you have not dived before, never fear!

 

Our professional dive officers can train and qualify you during your placement, up to PADI Advanced Open Water!

 

We advise you to undertake a try-dive before you leave for your project to ensure that you are happy with basic skills before undertaking the training overseas. Arrange with a local dive shop to do this and let them know you're diving for a good cause – they might let you do it for free!
