OPEN WATER COURSE
The Open Water Course is the first step of the ladder to a whole world of possibilities, including the Adventure Diver and Advanced Open Water Course.
Day 1 – Completing the first three modules of theory by watching the Open Water movie. Then learning the skills in the confined water dives swimming pool.
Day 2 – Your Instructor will go through the equipment assembly with you before we go for our first dive. The first dive is a nice relaxing dive to a maximum depth of 12m to get you used to being underwater and using the equipment.
During the 2nd dive of the day you will repeat some of the skills you practised in the swimming pool, which you are required to perform for certification.
Day 3 – Complete your two remaining open water dives. Again you will repeat more of the skills you learned in the pool, but this time you will dive to a maximum depth of 18m. Which dive sites we choose for the second day depends on how comfortable you are and what the conditions are like at that particular time.
Once we are back on in the shop you will complete the paperwork, fill in your logbook and receive your certification card.
