Want to explore the underwater world and become a part of the scuba family but are short on time, or like the idea of getting some experience in the water while being supervised by a dive professional? Then the SSI Scuba Diver certification is for you!
Effectively it is the first half of the Open Water Diver certification. This globally-recognized certification is valid for life and will allow you to dive worldwide, to depths of up to 12 meters / 40 feet, accompanied by a dive professional.
The SSI Scuba Diver Course consists of 3 phases of skill development; Academic Training, Confined Water Training and Open Water Training Dives. Upon successful completion of all 3 phases, you will earn the SSI Scuba Diver certification.
You will start by completing your Digital Academic materials online which will introduce you through the underwater environment, its' effects on us while diving, the equipment required, how it works and the skills you will learn during the course.
You will then be ready to start with the in-water training which is completed over 2 days.
The first day is dedicated to Confined Water Training where you learn and master the skills you need to become a safe and confident diver. This is done in our dive pool, where you will progress step by step. Your Instructor will demonstrate the skills and work with you until you have mastered them and feel truly comfortable underwater.
The following day, you will complete 2 Open Water Training Dives with your Instructor. During these dives, you put the skills you have learned into practice, demonstrating your abilities as a safe Scuba Diver and of course exploring the underwater world of the Caribbean Reefs.
Diving in some of the most crystal clear waters of the world, you can expect to see a wide variety of marine life and corals. Angel Fish, Butterfly Fish, Barracudas, Stingrays, Crabs, Turtles and much more are all usual visitors on our local reefs!
With a maximum of 4 students per Instructor in our groups, you can be certain you will receive personal attention and training, enjoying every moment of your journey to becoming an SSI Scuba Diver and joining the scuba family!
The perfect way to get started and you can upgrade to the full Open Water Diver certification whenever you are ready.
