PADI/SSI Open Water Diver Course


The course starts with the theory section, which takes 2 hours. During that you watch a short video, and your instructor explains basic rules and prepares you for the dive. You get your set of equipment: the tank, regulator, BCD, weights, suit, shoes, fins and mask. The instructor explains how to collect it and you will put all equipment on you. Then it is time you go in the sea, supervised by the instructor, and have your first dive. For the next 2 or 3 days (depends on the intensity of your course), you will repeat the process. All together it will be 4 dives. The last day you will have the test exam and receive a PADI temporary card (you will receive the permanent card within 3 weeks to your home address).
