The Open Water Diver course can be completed in just four days. At the end of your course you will be awarded the worldwide-recognized Open Water Diver Certification, allowing you to dive to a depth of 18 meters.
Our personalized training approach accelerates the process of making you a serious diver in a way that is comfortable and fun for you. After all, everyone learns at a different pace and has personal objectives for their diving. Under the guidance of a professional Instructor, you will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to enjoy a lifetime of underwater exploration.
You start with a 2-3 hours pool dive session, familiarizing yourself with the equipment and the basic SCUBA skills. Once comfortable you will continue your training in the “open water”. This course requires you to do at least 6 open water dives, the first two dives are done at a max-depth of 12 meters and the remaining four dives to a max-depth of 18 meters. Both practical training and theoretical studies are combined during the course in order to make the most out of the time.
The Open Water Diver certification will be given to you just a few days after completing both the practical and the theoretical part. As a certified Open Water Diver you will be able to explore many of the dive sites in the bay practicing some of the new techniques you’ve acquired during your dive training.
You will learn how to:
- Move around in the water with ease
- Breath normally under the water

- Enter and exit the water with ease
- Get water out of your mask or mask clearing
- Select the best diving equipment for your needs and budget
