PADI Open Water Diver
We do photodives in shallow seas from shore dives to allow for maximum bottom time and comfort. Maximum 4 people per dive. We have designed them under Hydro Motion Medias trademark "static" dive plan. We locate an area of significant marine life and spend the dive in this one area. Participants can relax in the comfort they are being supervised making sure they can devote all their attention to the camera and fine tune their settings with a guide on hand.

Underwater photographers often get left behind on guided dives due their tendancy to stop for extended periods when an interesting subject is found. If your tired of getting left behind by the group or want the opportunity to spend more time underwater developing your technique without the added worry of losing buddies we have designed the photodive especially for you!
These dives offer the opportunity for underwater photographers to enjoy a dive without feeling the pressure to keep up with a group, they are designed around principles formulated by underwater photographers to make sure the participant has everything they need to get the best pictures from their dive in the safest way possible.
