If you've started your scuba certification somewhere else, but were unable to complete it, finish the dives here in the beautiful Key Largo waters. This course is for those who have already completed their e-learning and completed the pool sessions of their training.

After completing the pool sessions you should have a basic understanding of the following skills and knowledge, now you will be able to put them to use during your dives:

  • The aquatic environment: vision, light, sound, heat loss, tides, currents, waves, surge, etc.

  • Physics and physiology: buoyancy, pressure, air spaces, breathing compressed air, mixed gasses, etc.

  • Dive environment selection, assembly, use and maintenance

  • Dive planning

  • Basic scuba skills including mask and regulator skills, swimming underwater, buoyancy control, basic rescue techniques, and emergency procedures

  • And much more!

Upon completion of the Open Water Diver course, you will be able to conduct open water dives in conditions similar to training!
