Open Water Course

$390 USD

During the course,  you will learn the theory of diving, practice exercises inside and outside of the water, and learn how to deal with any unexpected issue that may arise underwater calmly and effectively. 

The key to becoming a great diver is proper knowledge and good practice to build confidence in yourself and your gear.

This course is a three-day training from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm approximately.

On the first day, we do part of the theory in the morning.
After that, we go to the beach and start our water training. 


When we finish our water training for the first day, we do our first open water dive from the beach. 

On the second day, we finish our theory part and go to the beach again.
This time we finish our water training, and we do two more open water dives. 

On the third day, we go to our boat and do two more dives, this time inside the marine park, where we will finish our certification.

Of course, the best part is that you also get to explore and enjoy some of the best diving in the world and the best possible conditions for diving!

When you finish the course, you will receive a PADI Open Water Diver certification. PADI is the world’s leading dive certification agency, accepted and highly respected across the globe!
