Whichever agency you choose to take your Open Water Course, your Scuba Diving license is your ticket to exciting adventures in the underwater world and lasts for a lifetime. The 4 day Open Water Course including 4 sea dives, is your first step on the diving certification ladder. This Open Water license enables you to dive to a depth not to exceed 18 meters, in conditions not to exceed your training, with a buddy, who is also a certified diver, at 100% of all diving destinations throughout the world!
The SSI Open Water courses are divided into modules and consist of five academic sessions - video and lecture, shallow water sessions - amidst the beauty of the islands' sheltered beaches, and then four open water dives in the sea.
Be at least 10 years old and be able to swim. NATX Divers provides all equipment, boat trips, etc., for the duration of the course. We can lend you the SSI Manual for all SSI Courses.
Typically the course takes between three to four full days, but rest assured, we will not rush you through the program. Because the course is performance based, you will have plenty of time to practice your new skills prior to certification.
After successfully completing the Open Water Diver program, you'll be issued with your Open Water Diver certification card. This internationally recognized credential is your ticket to the diving world. You may also want to continue your dive education with an Advanced or Specialty Diver course to allow you to explore more dive opportunities.
