After you have completed the EFR course and gained some confidence and knowledge in First Aid and CPR, it is time to get some more experience and learn about rescuing divers in need. Confined water sessions in the pool with one of our experienced instructors will teach you the skills needed to respond to tired, injured, or unconscious divers, and it will give you a strong knowledge base for preventing and reacting to any diver problems that may occur underwater. The open water dives will enable you to test your new knowledge by putting you in situations where a diver is in distress, and drive you to assess the situation and decide on the best course of action.
Please note that we do not allow more than 4 students per course!
You’ll use all the necessary scuba equipment and a diving computer during your open water dives: a buoyancy compensating jacket that holds your scuba tank, scuba regulator, a weight system, instrumentation to monitor depth and wetsuit. You will be able to buy your own mask in our retail shop, as it’s always better when it fits with face properly. If you decide to buy anything from us, we will give you a special 10% in our retail store!
