Ninja Level Training: Welcome to the Dojo.

Our team has worked extensively around the world and one thing is certain: not all dive training is equal. At Dive Ninjas, we are in the business of creating top-notch divers. We are not your run-of-the-mill dive shop offering cheap courses and poor quality. We choose quality over quantity, so almost all of our courses are taught one on one with the instructor. Our instructors are passionate about not only teaching, but creating what we like to call, ninja divers. This brought us to create our own series of Dive Ninja course packages. Each level has been meticulously crafted to help you become a more well-rounded, safe, & confident diver while having a lot of fun in the process.

Each of the 3 levels is built on a tried & tested core PADI course, and then mixed with additional training important for helping the diver grow. We then build in a marine conservation element because we believe it is vital for all divers to have a better understanding of our oceans and how they can help protect them. Each level finishes with a personalized training session with your instructor to help perfect your skills & knowledge, and strengthen any weak areas. Our ninja level training has quickly built us a reputation around the world for creating solid divers. This is the Dive Ninja Dojo.
