Scuba Certification Dives

bubble 3STEP 3 - Open Water Training Weekends

This is where learning to dive really becomes fun. After your class and pool training (Step 2), you will be prepared to make your training dives. You will transition to diving in an open water environment, complete with the sights, sounds and inhabitants of the underwater world!

 

To qualify for your Certification Card (diver's license), you will make five scuba training dives with an instructor. You will be diving for two days. On each dive you will progressively assume more responsibility for planning and managing your own dive. By the fifth dive you should be able to dive without direct supervision from an instructor. You and your dive buddy will be ready for a world of diving opportunities!
