You have seen countless Hollywood movies, documentaries of the oceans, seen your friends diving photos on Facebook or want a challenge and see what awaits you in the underwater world? Then the Open Water course is for you.
The most popular diving certification is for the open water course, our cost includes all equipment, certification, manuals, log books etc and after completion you will certified to dive to 18m!
The course is divided into academic sessions for the theory, shallow water training sessions where we practice the skills required for diving and 4 open water dives in the ocean.
The first 2 open water dives are to a maximum depth of 12m but to begin with we are normally shallow than this, once you feel comfortable underwater we can go a little bit deeper and start to explore. Dives 3 and 4 are to maximum depth of 18m and we dive deeper and further than before, you will be amazed. At all times your instructor will be with you to keep you safe, and you practice some of the skills you did earlier in the shallow water training and find all the cool stuff under the sea.

Day 1 Course orientation 6pm to 7.30pm, presentation videos and theory
