The Open Water Scuba Certification, Open Water is the entry level of scuba diving, the first step. Here you learn basic rules of diving, the "do's and don'ts", and you learn and practice the skills you will use on each and every dive.
The open water course is divided into 3 basic parts, the academics or classroom, the confined water this is a pool or a shallow water spring, and finally the open water dives 4 in all.
The academics are done by you on your home computer, a few short videos and some questions about them, it only takes about six hours in all to complete. and is done on your schedule, so take your time and enjoy it as you learn.
The confined water, after a short review of the academics, your instructor will gear you up and take you to a pool or shallow spring, somewhere you can stand, here they will show you simple skills and you can try them and practice them.
The final step is the 4 open water dives, the fun part, here is where you put your new skills to work, or should I say to play.
This course only takes two days of water time, after you have completed the home study academics, and you will be amazed how fast you take to the water.
... and for giving us the honor of introducing you to the wonderful world of scuba diving.
