Versions in other languages may have a slightly different price, so please contact us with your specific request.


The OWD, AOWD, Rescue, Divemaster manuals, the PADI Instructor Manual and the RDP Table are not included in the IDC Crewpak as you should already have them from your previous courses.

Please let us know if you need any of these manuals so that we can order them for you.

If you already have most of the materials and only need a few items, please contact us for individual prices.
