The Open Water course is the diving course known best worldwide. On completion, you will be qualified to dive with your diving partner to a depth of 18 meters anywhere in the world.
As from there, you may continue your education with further speciality courses. Irrespective of whether you decide to dive as a hobby or a professional, it starts with completing the OWD course. The OWD course includes theory via the SSI app or online account as well as practical exercises in the pool (6 modules) and in the sea (4 dives). Juniors can also discover the diving world through the Junior Open Water course, which has a minimum of 10 years of age.
The OWD course will take 3 days starting with theory and pool sessions to introduce and practice new skills. We then take to the ocean and complete 4 dives in which we develop and reinforce those skills. Theory and pool sessions will be held on site and we can fit the course around you and your availability. We are flexible and can work both weekdays or weekends. If you can join us during the day, we offer evening sessions between 18:00 to 22:00.
A theory examination is compulsory, and you need to attain 80% to pass.
UPGRADE YOUR TRAINING
If you wish to develop further and extend your knowledge and experience, it is possible to combine your OWD course with other speciality courses. We recommend the Nitrox course with the Deep course. These complement your learning and fit together perfectly.
