Becoming an Open Water Diver means you will be formally qualified to dive around the world and opens a whole world of adventures and untold beauty.

The session typically involves the following components:

1. Course Introductions

A qualified instructor provides an overview of the course, when and where it will take place, what equipment you will be using and what online coursework you'll need to complete, and by when.

2. Classroom sessions

The classroom sessions are a fun, non-daunting learning experience. No one really likes classrooms, but these are hands on sessions, and often involve getting familiar with diving equipment and setup.

3. Pool sessions - basic skills

The first few in water sessions will be similar to your try dive experience, with a few more skills to practice of course. Every sessions brings a degree of re-cap from the previous, and adds more skills into the mix. With every session you feel your confidence grow.

4. Shallow Open Water sessions

When you are ready, your instructor and divemaster will take you to an outdoor site, here they will coach you to put all the skills you learned into practice and conduct actual real dives, the first few will be shallow, and will have a great deal of leadership and guidance. As your confidence grows so will your enjoyment.

5. Deeper Open Water Sessions

The last day of your course will have 2 more challenging dives, they will be a little deeper, you and your buddy might lead them, but don't worry your instructor and dive master will never be far away.

6. experience dives

All students will have the opportunity to gain further experience post qualification, and book onto a series of experience dives with an instructor and/or a dive master. These sessions are included in our payment plan packs and are highly recomended!
