Typical Diary of the Scuba Diver Course
1pm- 5.30pm: We'll go out on the boat & head to a sheltered bay around the island & do what is called shallow water confined. We'll start in a depth you can stand up in & then work to a maximum depth of no more than 3 meters by the end of the afternoon.
Day 2- 10am-11.30am: Theory Module 3. Same as yesterday but not as long! Finish off all necessary theory to be certifed as a Scuba Diver.
1pm-5.30pm: We're off on the boat to do 2 dives at 2 different divesites to reach a maximum depth of no more than 12 meters. We'll do a number of skills that we did the day before in shallow water in slightly deeper water & generally go out & explore the reef, look at fish & try & get to grips with your buoyancy control.
After completing all of the above you will then be certified as a Scuba Diver which enables you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters assisted by a diving professional.Now what?
After completing either of these programs, you'll want to continue your dive education and the Open Water Diver certification to explore more dive opportunities.
