Our three days Mallorca PADI Open Water Diver liveaboard course is a surprising plan for long weekends or public holidays.
We will not only experience how it feels like to breath under the surface and dive in a privileged natural environment, but also the adventure that involves living aboard a sailboat for three days. In addition, we will have the opportunity of diving in some of the best marine reserves of Balearic Islands, which is no doubt an excellent context for a diving course. For instance, Toro Island or Malgrats Islands Marine Reserves. On the other hand, we will be able to explore hidden coves on kayak and to go snorkeling.
As a result, we get unique crewed sailboat charter holidays which combines the best of both sailing and diving with our Mallorca PADI Open Water Diver liveaboard course.
As a general rule, this is the itinerary for our 3 days Mallorca PADI Open Water Diver liveaboard course. However, the final schedule (and meal timings) will depend on the weather conditions, group preferences, etc. Therefore, the given schedule is approximate. In addition, keep in mind that there are many options for such an adventure. Consequently, we will do our best to customize the adventure for accomplishing with everyone’s expectations.

- If you have already completed the knowledge development segments before you come, we will be able to take it easier and have a more relaxed course.
- If you are going to fly after diving: wait at least 18 hours after doing several dives before taking a commercial flight. Please keep this in mind when booking your flight.
