The 3-day Open Water Diver course is designed to give you certification for a lifetime ticket to Scuba diving. We run courses every day with a maximum of 4 students per instructor:
Dive Theory (Classroom) or E-learning
Dive theory takes place in the classroom and consists of 5 chapters and video instruction. A multiple-choice exam is taken at the end to test your knowledge
Confined Water Dives
In the shallow waters or swimming pool, we put your diving theory to practical use and you will learn how to use your equipment underwater
Open Water Diving
You will take 4 complete underwater dives with your instructor at depths of 12 meters for the first 2 dives, and up to 18 meters for dives 3 and 4
Finally, you will take a written exam
Congratulations – you are now an OPEN WATER DIVER
The minimum age is 10 years old. Divers who are younger than 15 earn the Junior Open Water Diver certification which allows them to dive up to 12 meters, which they may upgrade to Open Water Diver certification (18 meters) upon reaching 15.
Recreational scuba diving and freediving requires good physical and mental health. There are a few medical conditions which can be hazardous while diving, listed below. Those who have, or are predisposed to, any of these conditions, should be evaluated by a physician. This Diver Medical Participant Questionnaire provides a basis to determine if you should seek out that evaluation.
