SDI Open Water
Ready to take the first step towards opening yourself up to a new world? Change your life by becoming a certified scuba diver.
Most divers can vividly recall their first breath underwater. Scuba diving is more than a hobby; it is a passion. The open water course is designed to give students the necessary skills to conduct open water dives in conditions similar to their training without the direct supervision of an instructor. You will learn everything from gear selection and set up, dive planning, physics and physiology of the underwater environment, scuba skills such as mask clearing, regulator recovery, buoyancy control, and much more. But most importantly we teach you how to dive in a fun and safe manner.
Course Length: Minimum 3 days, 4 confined water dives and 4 open water dives
Costs: $165 per day 1 diver
$145 per day 2-3 divers
Includes Materials, Equipment, Air Fills and Certification Fee
Prerequisites: 18 years of age, 10 through 17 with written parental consent. Must be able to demonstrate comfort in water and adequate swimming ability.
“Zack and Lucia couldn’t have been a better duo of instructors to work with for our family’s open water dive certification in Bonaire. There were 7 of us (!!) getting certified, which is a lot of people to get outfitted with scuba gear and accommodate different paces of learning. Zack and Lucia were so relaxed, knowledgeable, patient, and made everyone feel comfortable the whole time. Zack is a fun guy from California with a great sense of humor and Lucia is one of the most “mothering” and gentle souls I’ve ever met. If you had an issue while diving, big or small, they would address it immediately and give you the confidence to manage the same situation in the future independently. Not to mention, the reef just offshore from their shop was one of the best we experienced in Bonaire. I couldn’t recommend them enough— don’t hesitate to book any level cert with them!!”
