After successful completion of the course you will be a certified Open Water Diver and licensed to dive with a buddy to a maximum depth of 18 metres anywhere in the world!
- ACADEMICS. When you book onto an Open Water Diver Course you will be given access to the SSI Online Training program. You can then learn at your own pace when it is convenient for you. There are six sections to complete in the comfort of your own home and a multiple choice exam which will be conducted at our store before you go to the pool on Day 1 of the course.
- POOL TRAINING. Day 1 of the course is where you will develop basic scuba and self rescue skills in a controlled confined water environment. Once you are comfortable in the pool, it's time to dive where the real action takes place - the open water.
- OPEN WATER SESSIONS. Days 2 & 3 of the course are spent in the ocean and are typically conducted at Long Bay and Bare Island (weather dependant). Over these days you will complete at least four open water dives and have the chance to experience everything you learned in the pool hands-on. After successful completion of your open water training dives you will become a certified diver!
