what should you expect?

Students go over theory on the beach.


After completing the requisite paperwork, you’ll begin your classroom theory with a series of short videos and exercises from your Open Water Diver training manual. Your instructor will go over 5 different lessons, each tackling different aspects of diving – equipment, physics, emergency procedures, environmental considerations and more. The theory culminates in a 50 question multiple choice exam. Don’t worry! If you’ve been listening to your instructor, it should be easy!

new skills

Head to our training pool and begin to get acquainted with your diving equipment. You will also learn how to set up and take apart your dive equipment. Once in the pool, you’ll learn valuable skills in a safe training environment, forming the basis of the open water training. Your pool session will help master basic skills, emergency backup plans and buoyancy techniques. Practice in the pool to work out any difficulties until you feel comfortable performing the skills 10 metres underwater in the ocean!

the good stuff

You’ll complete four open water dives to depths no greater than 18 metres. During these dives, you’ll repeat the skills you have learned in the pool and add new skills to your repertoire. Over these dives, practice emergency skills, planning your dive, honing your buoyancy and navigation techniques. Most importantly, you’ll explore and marvel at the magic of the underwater world as you swim with creatures of the sea.
