Procedure for the Open Water Diver course

With the three-day course you start a whole new, thrilling adventure. The course is divided into theory, pool training and open water training.

On the first day we start with a discussion of diving theory and an equipment workshop. Here you will get to know your diving equipment and how it works. We spend the rest of the first day doing diving training in the pool. In addition to emergency procedures and buoyancy, the focus is on your comfort level. At the end of the pool training you will feel right at home underwater and can hardly wait to dive in the sea.

The second day starts again with the discussion of the diving theory that is still open before it finally happens in the early afternoon. Your first two open water dives are waiting for you. We take the boat to two shallow reefs in front of Playa del Carmen. In addition to repeating some exercises from the pool, diving is clearly the focus. You will see that diving in the ocean is much easier than diving in a shallow pool.

On the third day we start with the final exam before we tackle the two final dives. It goes again by boat to two reefs off Playa del Carmen. As on the day before, the dives are divided into a small part of exercises that you already know from the pool and exploring the underwater world. After completing your open water dives and passing the final exam, you did it. You are now an Open Water Diver.
