Yes, I recommend getting your e-learning done first. This takes the longest. Then you could do the confined and open water part of the course in 3 days. However, you need to do your e learning first.

Yes we do snorkeling trips, but only for snorkelers who are accompanying a certified scuba diver. Provided there is space available. We do not offer any Snuba dives.
