Millions of people have become Open Water SCUBA certified to safely explore the depths of our oceans.

You must be at least 10 years old and fit to dive – in some cases we may ask you to provide a medical form signed by your doctor stating that you are fit to dive.
Course goal: upon successful completion of the Zoom theory sessions, the pool sessions and the ocean examinations you will become an Open Water SCUBA Diver.
