About our Openwater Course

The Openwater scuba diving course is a combination of online based theory, pool and open ocean dives. You will be trained to dive to a depth of 18 metres and issued with your Openwater Scuba Diver certification which is recognised worldwide.  

Prior to starting the course you will need to complete your theory online which will take approximately 6-7 hours to complete. You will be required to complete a theory exam. It is also a requirement that you are able to swim 200 metres (without stopping) and tread water for 10 minutes. You may use any technique to complete this swim and there is no time limit. The practical skills of diving are then covered and practiced in the comfort of the pool.

To further your skills there are 4 open water training dives. During these ocean dives, you will repeat some of the skills learned in the pool plus additional practical skills to ensure that you are competent Open Water scuba diver.  When you have successfully completed all theory and practical sessions, your instructor will sign your log book and student record file. You will then become a certified Scuba Diver. Your certification will be recognised world wide.
