The open water course is the first course you take to get your “diving license” this course is made up of classroom training, training in a pool and 4 dives in open water. Doing the classroom portion of the course on-line allows you unlimited scheduling flexibility. You simply do the classroom work whenever YOU have time.

Proper fitting snorkeling equipment will greatly increase your overall comfort and enjoyment of the course. It has been my experience (over 30 years) that the overwhelming majority of students that purchase their equipment online are dissatisfied with their purchase. This is because you can’t choose proper fitting equipment based on a picture online, you have to try it on. Even then, you won’t be certain of your purchase until you use it in the water. This is why we offer our students a satisfaction guarantee: If after your pool training you would like to exchange any of your equipment; NO PROBLEM, we’ll swap it for something more suitable to your needs.
