60ft / 18m



3 days, 3 modules

The full course takes around 3 days to be completed, there are 3 modules: theory, confined water sessions, and open water dives. We strongly recommend that you cover the theory part at home prior to your trip, so you can fully focus on the diving

Your adventure begins at home with the E-learning materials that we will Email to you (the E-learning materials are included in the total course price). The theory covers different aspects of diving like: equipment, physiology, dive planning, common problems, etc… And each chapter has some quizzes for you and there is a final exam to do as well. This is also a good time to watch skills videos as we are going to be practicing a lot next!
Confined Water training
All the skills that you are going to learn in this course and you already saw in the theory part, are practiced first in confined water: in a swimming pool, off a calm beach, or in a shallow open water cenote. We combine these sessions so you can gain confidence faster and master the required skills easily.
Open Water Dives
So you’ve finished your confined water dives, and now it’s time to take a step further and explore the underwater world in its full glory and majesty – swimming with fish, turtles, and everything the sea has to offer. Your instructor will always be by your side to assist and guide you through these 4 full dives! Once completed successfully, you will be an Open Water Diver. Congratulations! You can now dive anywhere in the world.
