PADI Open Water Diver Course in L'AmetllaSKU: 1314
Description of PADI Open Water Diver Course in L'AmetllaWould you like to explore the depths of the sea? Stop watching all those underwater documentaries on TV and have a first-hand experience! We propose that you take the PADI Open Water course so that you can dive down to a maximum depth of 18 metres anywhere around the world.
The course has a theory part, necessary to learn about the safety norms, the problems that might come up and how to solve them and about the main species we can find during our dives.
Once you know the theory, we start with the practical training. To whet your appetite, we conduct the first dive in a pool at our own facilities, where we learn to use the scuba gear, to compensate and to breath correctly. Once we are ready, we go to the sea! We conduct our practice sessions in the L'Ametlla area. We do 3 or 4 approximately 40-minute open water dives; during the last one of which we dive down to the maximum depth that our certification allows: 18 metres.
In order to receive the certification, you have to pass a test exam.
The duration of the course depends on each student, but completing it normally requires 3 or 4 days.
