Private Coaching with Unawatuna Diving Centre


Why do I need a Private Coaching?

One or two dives with just you and your PADI divemaster or PADI instructor. This is a very personal, educational and safe thing! Your personal PADI divemaster or PADI instructors can thus accompany adjust individually to YOU and can accompany and lead you during your dive. But why do you need a private dive?

A private dive is a good idea in the following cases:

I feel unsafe while diving

Maybe you have just completed your Open Water Diver course and do not want to do the same with a group of divers or you just need a little more attention to feel safe.

I want to improve my skills

There is this one thing which you would like to train on because you always have difficulties with your Jacket/LA/fin/ etc. Maybe you want to train and repeat this one special diving skill from your Open Water Course, Advanced Open Water Course, another diving course or specialty.

I am just starting with my own camera

You have just unpacked your brand new camera and would like to try it out. Therefore, you need more time to position yourself underwateror more time to adjust your settings. You take a private coach to don't stop other divers and don't come in distress.

I have another reason

Talk to us! Do you have a special reason or you 're not sure if you want to dive alone or in a group? . We are always there to help you with your decisions and give you the best advice.



Schedule

As already mentioned, our dives start every morning at 8:30, or in the afternoon at 13:30 (except night dives). Let us know if you would like to perform one (single tank dive) or two dives (Two Tank Dive Bot) with your private coach in advance. We usually result in 90 % Two Tank Boat Dives through our base. Please contact us AT LEAST two days before, so we can organize the groups and, above all, so that your personal PADI divemaster or PADI instructor is still available for you.





At your arrival at the base you will be welcomed from one of our local and international divemasters and instructors. We provide you with equipment if desired, help you to prepare and organize your group. Finally you will have a comprehensive but compact BRIEFING together with your group. We will tell something about the dive site, explain important local and special dive site - related methods and techniques, repeat the signs for underwater communication and answer any questions you might still want to clarify.

Finally we go, we cast off! Together we bring the equipment to the boats, of course our staff helps you if you are not capable of carrying it yourself. When everybody is on the boat we get to one of our many dive sites, of which most can be reached within 20 minutes.




Boat belongs to Unawatuna Diving Centre


A two-tank boat-dive consists of two dives. If there is a significant difference in depth between the two approached dive sites, the deeper one will be dived first (we dive with PADI and therefore avoid reverse profiling). Depending on the zero time a dive is at maximum of 45 minutes .

The surface interval (~ 30 min) is usually already covered by the drive to the next dive site, but we will give you enough time to recover you from your dive, and prepare your equipment for the next. Here too, we are happy to assist you .

Between the dives we will NOT go back to the dive center if possible.




Fun Dives with Unawatuna Diving Centre


After your return to the diving school we invite you to talk about your underwater experience with tea and biscuits. Our guides help you to complete your logbook and identify organisms that you have seen during your dives.

In the meantime, you can hang up your wetsuit, so that it will be dry and ready for your next dive.
