It is a full scuba license which is why it’s the most popular course, it allows you to dive anywhere in the world and also allows you to start adventure dive specialties courses. Your instructor will guide you through the course at your own pace to make sure you understand everything involved in this course.
Open Water Diver Course
The first day you will begin by watching the open water video sections 1 through to 5 (unless you watched them online), and then your instructor will take you through knowledge reviews with some quizzes to test you, then the final exam. We do this to make sure that you understand everything in this course. After lunch, we will take you to the pool. At the pool, your instructor will teach you how to set your equipment up and show you how it all works. Then it’s in the pool where you will learn the proper way to breathe underwater and learn new skills to get you ready for the ocean dives.
On the second day we pick you up from your hotel, then we drive to the pier. Once we are abroad the boat you will set up your own equipment making sure everything is in good working order. Your instructor will give you a briefing on the way to the dive sites, about the day’s activity. You will complete two dives with the skills you learned in the swimming pool. There will be time also on both dives to experience the magic what the seas have to offer us.
The third day is the same as the second put we practice different skills than we did on the second day but still giving us time to practice our buoyancy and getting acclimatize to being under the ocean.
