Open Water Diver
SSI Open water diver
You can work through all SSI courses at home at your leisure, in a very well designed app or online. Your time and pace. Truly stress-free learning. Once you have registered with us for the course, we will give you all the links so you can register with SSI. Once you have entered all the necessary information, we can activate the course for you and you can start learning. This takes a lot of the time pressure off and helps you get involved with the course.
Your adventure starts at our center. Before each dive, we explain to you exactly what to expect. We will go through all the exercises and explain them to you in detail. Once all questions are answered, we prepare for the dives and off we go!
shallow water sessions
In 3 – 4 sessions at a maximum of 5 meters we will learn the exercises that will help you to move safely and with a lot of fun under water. Be it blowing out the mask when water has entered, preparing the equipment or the first emergency drill. For us, practice does not mean ticking off, but learning, so that you feel comfortable and confident with the skills. We do not do exercises, but help you learn to dive. This is an essential part of our training philosophy.
The first dive takes you already to a depth of up to 12 meters. You repeat here exercises that you have mastered in shallow water to always have them at hand. Of course we also take the time to explore our surroundings and do a great dive.
After a detailed briefing, we prepare for the second dive. Here we will be happy to take you to one of the beautiful dive sites in the area. We repeat more exercises from the shallow water. In this way you already build up the first routines, which is an important goal of the course.
Now, depending on the dive site, it can already go up to 18 meters. Now you will learn more about dive planning and air management. Slow ascents and the safety stop make the dives a safe experience even at 18 meters. You will see how much you already feel at home under water.
Set the buoy, repeat a few exercises, but most of all have fun and enjoy! After the last dive you are a real Open Water Diver and a door to a new world has opened.
After the dives we have enough time to talk about the experience and to immortalize your dives in the digital logbook of the SSI App. After the shallow water session, there is also a test to check what you have learned from the theory.
When you have successfully completed the course, you can proudly call yourself Open Water Diver! Now you are allowed to go diving worldwide up to 18 meters, with a qualified dive buddy. All further diving courses build on this elementary course. Have fun and we will be happy to accompany you on the way.
