The Open Water course is structured in the following way:
Pre-Dive: First, we study scuba diving theory. Next, we submit your registration with SDI and complete the necessary paperwork to begin your course.
Day 1 – Pool Session:
First, we cover the course layout. Additionally, we show you how to assemble and disassemble your dive equipment. Also, we show you the different styles of kits available. In particular, we expose you to as many different manufacturers as possible, so that you have an understanding of what the market offers. Second, the instructor verbally explains the different skills and exercises that you will practice in the pool. Finally, once in the pool, the instructor demonstrates these skills and requests that you recreate them multiple times.
Day 2 and 3 – Open Water Dives:
We spend days 2 and 3 out at sea. Thus, getting a taste of your first dive in the ocean! You have the option of doing both days at Tweed Heads. Alternatively, we can also visit Cook Island on the third day. This is only possible if you have booked this upgrade. During these two days you will enjoy four (4) open water dives. Once again, we cover the same skills we practiced at the pool. You will need to demonstrate that you have mastered the skills and exercises covered.
