Private or Group Instruction?

PADI courses with Dive The World

Private Instruction

Your dives finish when YOU run low on air. This means with private one-on-one instruction your dives are much longer. Expect your scuba dives to last about 45 minutes, 50% more than with group instruction.

There are also no other students to cause you hold-ups and slow you down, so you get to spend more time checking out the fish and less time waiting around and practising skills.

You can expect to spend 75% of your diving time enjoying the reef, and 25% for demonstrating skills. Learn scuba diving in Malaysia the easy way with the maximum amount of fun too.

Group Instruction

With group instruction the whole group ends the dives together as soon as the first student runs low on air. This means your dives are much shorter than with private instruction.

Expect to spend 75% of your time with your group demonstrating scuba skills, and 25% enjoying the reef and fish.
