OPEN WATER DIVER
ANTHIA - Open Water Diver
Our most popular certification course is the SSI Open Water Diver. This globally recognized certification program is the best way to begin the adventure of a lifetime as a certified diver. Customized training is combined with hands-on sessions in the water to ensure that you gain the skills and experience you need to feel truly comfortable underwater.
At the end of this program you will receive your SSI Open Water Diver certification. This certification gives you the ability to dive to depths of up to 18m with a partner that has equal or greater certification. Perhaps even more importantly, this certification is the one that will allow you to advance your training in the future through specialty programs.
Our customized training allows us to adapt to the availability of our students. This means that we start courses every day (except Monday and Tuesday when we are closed for weekly rest), and their duration can also be adjusted to your availability. So the course can be given over 3 days (minimum), or over two weekends (if you are only available on weekends). A typical (and adjustable) schedule for a course would be as follows:
Day 1: Full afternoon devoted to theory session and pool session;
Day 2: Full morning dedicated to two open water (sea) sessions;
Day 3: Full morning dedicated to two open water (sea) sessions, and two additional hours for review of theoretical material and exam taking.
Thus, this experience includes:
The price of the course is 390€. With the registration we ask you to pay half of this amount, so that we can provide the digital book and you can start studying immediately.
