SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Course & Advanced Diver Courses
( SDI )
Our beloved planet Earth’s surface is covered by over 70% of water, of which 95% of it will remain unseen by the eyes of humans. You may have gone swimming in the ocean or snorkeling in a tropical destination….but now is the time to take it one step further. See the aquatic world up close and personal and as it is meant to be experienced – underwater. Immerse yourself in a wonderful array of sea life and dive with schools of colorful fish, graceful sharks or take a trip into the history books and dive some of the most amazing historical wrecks that your newly found underwater world has to offer. Whichever direction you decide to take your new underwater life-style; it all begins here.
The Open Water Scuba Diver course is an entry-level certification course designed to give you the necessary skills to safely conduct open water dives. Some of the skills you will learn include buoyancy, proper weighting, underwater navigation, proper equipment assembly & post dive maintenance and most importantly, proper dive planning. It covers all of the basic knowledge about scuba equipment, physiology and the marine environment while training students to perform basic skills underwater. This course is the key to start exploring dive destinations around the globe or just the ones in your own backyard.
After successful completion of your Open Water certification, you have only just begun your underwater journey. To build your skill set and hone your in-water diving abilities, it is best to continue to your scuba education by taking additional advanced diver training courses and continuing education classes. There is an abundance of information available here for you to acquire while you continue to dive and build your skills. So take your time to become proficient and educated. Remember, scuba diving is not a race, it’s a spectator sport! Your dive buddies will thank you. The boat captain will thank you. Most importantly, you will have a more enjoyable time underwater!
We look forward to seeing you in class and in the water!
