Why learn with Arraia Divers?

Why learn with Arraia Divers?

At Arraia Divers we believe in personalized teaching! We are experienced in teaching PADI courses from the beginner’s level all the way up to Divemaster. No matter what course you want to take, we keep our groups small to give the students a better learning environment where students always have their instructor’s full attention. We generally keep a maximum of 4 students per group unless otherwise requested.

Depending on the time you have to do your course, we are flexible to accommodate your holiday plans or work schedule. Our instructors can teach in English.  With the support of our divemasters and interns we can also translate into Portuguese, Spanish and French. With Arraia Divers you can even chose to study your theory at your own pace, on-line, using PADI e-learning. Many are choosing e-Learning to save valuable vacation time as you can do the theory portion from home and start straight away with confined water training once you arrive.


Safety is our #1 priority! All of our instructors and divemasters are not only PADI professionals but are insured by Aqua Med. Our dive staff follows all PADI standards and guidelines so you can be certain that you will be provided with safe and high quality PADI courses. We are not only PADI professionals but are up to date with today’s current dive techniques and theory, as well as aiming to teach all of our divers to be environmentally aware. You can also be assured that our gear is new and regularly serviced by our on site certified technician.

If you choose to do your theory with us instead of e-Learning, we have our own classroom  for theory sessions as well as access to an outdoor pool. To make things even easier, to do a dive on our beautiful Arraia reef, we gear up at our back door and walk a mere 20m to our entry point. We are also connected to the 4 star Hotel do Caracol so if you’ve chosen to stay here, all you need to do is take the elevator up to your room after diving! Our staff is fun, friendly, and interesting, as well as being a very international group. If you choose to do a course with us we’ll do our best to make the experience a memory!  Check out Trip Advisor for reviews from our customers.
