Safe Skills Development in Confined Water

The Open Water Scuba training program has a lot of very flexible options depending on how much time you have available and what level of diving certification you want to achieve in the available time. Our dive theory is comprehensive and includes a basic understanding of decompression. Even though we are NOT "Decompression Diving at this stage)

The most basic level can be achieved in just two to three days with 6 Open-Water dives minimum, two (2) on each day, on day one you will enjoy a short safety briefing and lecture on basic diving skills required for safe diving.

Each training dive will require the learning and assessment of skills, after which a short dive tour will be included (Air and Time permitting) to give you some experience and practice of new skills).

You will have completed the theory requirements online or self-study, or instructor led (in Class)... Your choice!

All required diving skills are completed in safe shallow water under supervision before being practiced again during actual Scuba dives... Our Aim is your control over your skills, equipment and being "Safe & Comfortable" in the marine environment.
