Established by Australian native and PADI course director Ken Atkinson in 2014, Prodive Middle East offers you the chance to explore the depths of the sea, bumping into schools of colourful fish, beautiful coral landscapes, turtles and even the occasional whale shark.
The diving school is located in two spectacular destinations - the JA Hotel & Resort in Jebel Ali and the Oceanic Resort & Spa in Khorfakkan on the east coast of the UAE. It runs the entire PADI training system from beginner to professional levels and caters to divers aged eight and up.
Prodive’s range of classes include an introductory discover scuba dive, open water diver, advanced open water diver, rescue diver, emergency first response, divemaster and instructor courses. The school prides itself on providing a level of customer service suitable for all types of individuals and groups.
Whether you’re learning on your own and keen to meet new friends or you are after some team-building activities for your company, Prodive will allocate appropriate instructors to meet all of your needs. And, thanks to the estimated 600 calories that a scuba diver can burn during just an hour of diving, it’s also a great way to be fit and active whatever the weather.
