Personalized training is combined with in-water practice sessions to ensure you have the skills and experience required to become truly comfortable underwater. As a certified Open Water Diver, you will have the freedom to dive to a maximum of 18 metres (less for children) with a buddy, independent of a professional.
If you currently have a Scuba Diver certification, contact Andy on firstname.lastname@example.org to see how credit from this course may apply to the open water program.

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can get their Open Water Diver certification. You must be older than the age of 10 to begin the Open Water Diver course.
A Junior Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 11 years may only dive with a Dive Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
- What will I do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing a total of six pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water dives.
