Open Water Diver

The “Open Water Diver” certification course is the most complete entry level course, and is the recommended course for divers that want to begin diving with less limitations. In this course, divers will establish a foundation of skills and knowledge that will allow them to enjoy diving safely up to the limit of 18 meters (60 feet) of depth; without need of professional supervision. Divers will slowly gain confidence in their dive abilities; while working through exercises with the support of our compassionate instructors. Most importantly, divers will have a lot of FUN doing so, by exploring many of our diverse dive sites! Upon completion of the course, divers are granted a certification that is international and valid for life! We provide PADI, and SSI certifications.
The “Open Water Diver” certification course can be completed in 2 full days; which is more intensive. Or the course can be completed in 3 half day sessions; which is most comfortable. These reservation days can be consecutive, but it is not required. We have reservations available every day, at 8:30 A.M. and 2:00 P.M.
