Ortega Diving
See description

On request

Heerbaan 4 Breda

Diving is one of the fastest growing adventurous sports worldwide and there are numerous reasons for this. The relaxed feeling and the feeling of weightlessness (a feeling that only astronauts experience) makes diving a unique sport. You always dive with a minimum of 2 persons, which makes this a social sport too. Did you know that 70% of the earth’s surface consists of water and in the water live more plants and animals than above? There is enough to discover in the world beneath the surface!

BRESS-members can learn how to dive at Ortega Diving guided by Chris. As a Master Scuba Diver Trainer, he and his instructors can teach every student how to dive. The pool of Amrâth Hotel Breda (opposite of BRESS Sports center) is their base camp which is why they can easily give diving lessons and courses throughout the whole year. Have you always had the desire to obtain your diving license or will you soon go on an internship abroad and would you like to dive there? Get your PADI now and enjoy a whole new world!
