Let’s try it! It can’t be so difficult…and that’s how every diver falls in love with scuba.

3 videos of the Open Water course and Quizzes
The Scuba Diver is a subset of the Open Water Diver course. This certificate allows a diver to go at a maximum depth of 12m /40ft with a professional diver (Divemaster, Instructor) within the recreational diving limits. It is a valid opportunity for junior divers that find sometimes the Open Water program a big learning and prefere to split the course in two but getting already a certification, or for divers that prefer stay shallow to practice before going deeper.

Minimum Age: 10
Prerequisites: None J
Requirements: 4 Days,
confined water,
2 openwaters with a maximum depth of 12m/40ft

3 openwaters
knowledge development
This scuba certification is a subset of the Advanced Open Water Diver. It may allows a diver to a greater depth than 18m/60ft within the recreational limits if one of the dive will be the deep dive. In both courses the nice is that the diver is more in water than in the classroom like in the Open Water, and allows flexibility to what is the interest of the student. To be more precise, Adventure and Advanced are introductive dives of the Specialty Diver Program. That means it is possible according to the environnement and the instructor to choose some of the activities (like: Peak Performance Buoyancy, Drift, Search and Recovery, AWARE Fish Identification, Boat Diver, Enriched Air Diver, Night Diver, Wreck Diver, Underwater Naturalist, Deep Diver, Underwater Navigator).

This course is focused on self and other divers safety. The diver learn which are the possible things might could go wrong, recognise them and how to handle them. However the real idea is to learn how to avoid them with anticipation and communication. The student learns as well how to organize a search and all the steps for rescuing the victim and the different logistical possibilities to get the diver as soon as possible at the hospital or the chamber (emergency plan). This course make a lot of sence once a diver is enough self confident scuba diving and is able to handle his own issues and start to get interested in otherpeople safety. May a good idea that at least one of the divers of a “scuba family” get sensibilized about the rescue procedures.

Avoid some nitrogen while scuba diving is nice and safe, that’s why this specialty really make sence. Absorbing less nitrogen allows divers longer in water and for them who like dive up to 4 times a day reduce the risk of overloading, however it might become dangerous because of the oxygen toxicity underpressure and your instructor is gonna take care of explain how to avoid any risk and analize your mix.

This course introduce divers to the absolute recreational depth limit and teach an introduction to handel faster gas consumption and emergency decompression due to unproper handling of the no-decompression limit because of the narcosis and the shorter time limits due to the depth.
If you may plan to jump in the technical diving world you will need this course as prerequisite for deep decompression diving.

The underwater world change atmosphere during the darkness hours. The fish go sleep protecting in the reef as well as the turtles, crabs, lobsters and many other creatures come out.

This is what every diver of every experience level can do. The perfecto buoyancy control, even in the best divers of the world, may always improve and get more controlled.

With the creation of GoPros the poor reef got even more smashed due to unexperienced, bad buoyant divers who decide to pretend be an uderwater videographer. Some places in the world already decided to bann cameras but we think is better to teach the proper use and behaviour to conserve the reef and diver safety.
IMPORTANT
If one of our professional will notice that one of our divers is breaking corals, damaging sealife or putting the group in danger because of taking pictures we reserve the right to push him to do this course if he wants to jump back in with his camera.

When drift diving (like in Cozumel at the Wall) the dive logistig has to be modified. The diver has to make sure to have a place where to come out (ifa long the coast) or organize the pick up with the boat, as well as in water the group of buddy teams has to be organized to avoid loosing members in the current. It is a really useful course that sensibilize the diver in different world locations where simple go and turn back dives are not possible.

Not many divers like the compass but for the ones who like it or plan some indipendent buddy team diving or that are from central Europe where the lakes most of the time give a maximum visibility of couple of meeters is a good idea to have at least a basic knowledge in how to use a compass and orientate the dive directions. 

Minimum Age: 12

Advanced Open Water Diver

This course may be perfect for this reagion. Cenotes diving is really famous here along the coast and an experience every diver may do at least once. If after this experience the diver mind blows, well, may is the moment to go for this course that introduct you deeper in what is cavern diving.

IMPORTANT
Due to the very complexed topography of he mexican caves and to the missing of standards and performance requirements in this course to be able to cover the technical cave course preparation and level of other organizations, we offer the possibility to make an intro to tech (to get used with technical equipment) and organize a freelance TDI or IANTD instructor to teach: CAVERN, INTRO TO CAVE, FULL CAVE.
These are technical diving courses due to penetration in overhead environnement!!!

EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE

This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, may be in shock or who may have serious bleeding. You’ll learn to how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.

Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.

The defibrillator starts to be avaliable in many public places around the world. You will learn how to use properly an AED.


This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency care skills adapted to infants and children with medical emergencies. It’s usually integrated in the primary care and secondary care course.

It’s a good idea to refresh your CPR and first aid skills every 24 months. Focusing on key skills, the course allows you to stay up-to-date.
