Earth’s surface is covered by more than 70% water. Our oceans and water systems, including lakes and rivers, remain mostly unexplored. You may go swimming in the ocean or snorkel over a reef, but now it’s time to hop off the couch and get into the studio audience. See the underwater world as it is meant to be experienced – underwater. This is your license to learn and explore your limits; whether that is interacting with colorful schools of fish over a peaceful sea mount or diving alongside a pod of dolphins that have come to take a closer look. Dive with sharks, dive in caves, or dive some of the most historic wrecks. Whatever direction you want to take your new life-style; it all begins here. The Basic Open Water Scuba Diver course is designed to give you the necessary skills to safely conduct open water dives. This course is the key to start exploring dive destinations near and far.
