Bahama Divers Open Water Certification Course

Duration: Half Day

bahama divers open water certification course

What better place to take an Open Water Certification Course than in the Bahamas. This Caribbean archipelago is made up of 700 stunning islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful white sandy beaches, clear azure waters and some of the best scuba diving destinations in the world await you.

If you have a passion for scuba diving and want to gain a certified qualification, this beginners Open Water course is the initial basic scuba diving certification course for all divers, taught by certified agency Bahama Divers, one of the most established dive operators in the Bahamas. This qualification will enable adults to dive 60 feet/18 meters and 10-12 years olds to dive 40 feet/12 meters, either with or without a dive master or instructor. You will also be eligible to do the Advanced Open Water course, among other special diving courses.

The course will include academic presentations, covering basic diving techniques, safety, equipment and maintenance and dive planning. Your diving sessions will take place in confined water, either in a pool or shallow ocean, where you will learn the necessary diving skills and techniques. As you gain more confidence, you will gradually move into deeper water and learn some of the more advanced skills and safety procedures. The last part of the course will take you out in a boat onto the open sea, where you can dive in the clear, sparkling Bahamian waters and practice the skills you have learnt in a real diving situation.

The Open Water Certification Course is taught by every certification agency, which all cover the same basic diving skills and knowledge that will enable you to become an independent diver. Once qualified, you just need to decide on your first diving location. With hundreds of islands and cays to choose from, you will find plenty of exciting destinations to explore during your holiday in the Bahamas. New Providence Island, Paradise Island and many of the Out Islands dotted throughout the Bahamas offer a wealth of treasures under the sea. Discover a fascinating underwater world of shipwrecks, walls, spectacular coral reefs, brightly-coloured tropical fish and an abundance of other beautiful marine species. Diving in the Bahamas is just one big adventure.
