During this section of your open water course  you will learn basic scuba skills in our onsite swimming pool. You will start with basics like how to set up your diving gear, clearing your mask and regulator of water, hovering and many other important skills. You will also be able to play in the pool, practicing your new found skills and experiencing weightlessness!

The skills learned in the pool will prepare you to dive in a variety of open water environments, including diving in Manuel Antonio and nearby Cano island.

Last part, almost there! After finishing up your pool and classroom, you can head into the ocean for your four open water dives. Here you can put into practice all of the skills that your learnt in the pool, as well as swim with the fish on our local volcanic reef! Your four open water course dives can be completed in just 2 days and if you want, can be combined with a trip to Cano Island to scuba dive with the sharks. If you already have your classroom and academics and you just need your open water dives then we can complete that here too as part of our scuba diving referral program. Once you have completed your dives then you can fill out your log book with your instructor, get your certification card and head out into the wide blue world
