UPGRADE Scuba Diver to Open Water Diver course
It takes 2 days to complete this course and you will be qualified to dive independently with another certified diver to a maximum depth of 18m.
This course will take your Scuba Diver skills and build on what you have already learnt.
Continuing where you left off you will complete confined dives 4 & 5 and then complete open water dives 3 & 4. To finish off, you will need to read the last 2 chapters (a good time to refresh the first 3 chapters too?!) of the theory and then complete the Open Water exam.
You can upgrade your SSI Scuba diver or PADI Scuba diver to Open Water. You will have to have with you, your training materials from your Scuba Diver course.
IMPORTANT: You will be booking the SSI upgrade course. However, on the second page of the booking form you will get the option to change this, to upgrade your PADI Scuba Diver certification. Choose 'PADI upgrade to Open Water diver (per person)' to book the PADI course.
Please note: The booking you make will need to be approved first and a mutually agreeable start date chosen. Only pay a deposit now, we will agree and confirm the start date with you. If you book far enough in advance it is more likely to be you chosen date.
** Discount applied at checkout for multiple students
** During the checkout process you will enter your preferred start dates. We will confirm which date you will start to ensure you have enough time to start the theory.
Your instructor will spend some time with you refreshing the diving equipment you will be using. Then you will go straight to the ocean! The site we will use is calm and easy to get in and out of. Once you have your 'sea legs' back on, you will learn the remaining skills required to deal with any situation in the future.
By the end of this course you will have completed all the in-water requirements and the theory elements to become a Open Water diver.
All necessary equipment is included.
With clear, calm seas and easy entry to the water, this is without exception the best place for you to continue your scuba diving education.
