It costs from just 580,000 cops (£198) to do your PADI and if you’ve already got your certificate you can enjoy fun dives from as little as 120,000 cops (£40). This includes equipment, guides, transportation and snacks on the boat.
We loved Aquantis Dive School (pictured above) for its friendly staff and professional attitude. It may cost a little more than other companies in Taganga but it prides itself on small groups and good instructors.
TOP TIP If you haven’t dived in a while you’ll need to take a refresher course. This usually involves watching a video, reading up on relevant material and having an instructor present when you dive.
