Starts in the classroom where you’ll learn about dive theory.
Your instructor will explain dive physics, physiology, and how you are affected underwater. Your Instructor will also take you through each section step-by-step, so that you have a complete understanding of dive theory.
After lunch you head for our purpose-built dive pool, here your instructor will demonstrate to you all the dive skills that you need to dive safely and confidently, You will learn how to: Clear water from your mask Clear water from your regulator Move in the water Control your buoyancy ….And a lot more All of the skills are easy to master and you will be given plenty of time to practice them in the pool before you head for the open-water.
Starts where you left off – in the pool, with some more dive skills and practice. Before long you will be swimming like a fish and ready for the ocean. After lunch your Instructor will take you to one of our Island dive sites, for your first open-water dive. On this dive you will get a chance to get comfortable being in the ocean. After you have completed dive 1 you’ll head back into ocean, for your second training dive where you will repeat many of the skills that you mastered in the pool.
You’re back into the ocean for your final 2 training dives. As you have already completed most of your skills on dive 2 you only have a few more skills on each dive. You will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sites. All that’s left to do is to complete the theory and you’re CERTIFIED and ready to dive!
