SSI Dive training

SSI’s Try a Dive course is designed to give participants a taste of scuba diving in a safe and controlled environment. It is a great way to try scuba diving for the first time without committing to a full certification course. Here’s what you can expect from the Try a Dive program:

Introduction and Orientation: The course begins with a briefing on basic scuba diving concepts and safety procedures. Participants will learn about the equipment used in scuba diving, how to communicate underwater, and what to expect during the dive.

Pool or Confined Water Session: After the orientation, participants will gear up and enter the water for a confined water session. This can take place in a pool or a controlled open water environment. During this session, participants will practice basic scuba diving skills and get comfortable with the equipment and breathing underwater.

Open Water Dive: Depending on the program, participants may have the opportunity to go on an open water dive under the supervision of a certified dive professional. This dive will typically take place in shallow water, such as a coral reef or a protected bay. During the dive, participants will explore the underwater environment and experience the thrill of breathing underwater.

Certification: The Try a Dive program is not a certification course, but participants may receive credit towards an Open Water Diver certification if they choose to continue their scuba diving education.

Overall, the Try a Dive program is a fun and safe way to experience scuba diving for the first time. It provides a taste of what scuba diving is all about, and can be a stepping stone towards more advanced scuba diving courses.

Open Water Diver Course: This is the entry-level course for new divers. It covers the basics of scuba diving, including equipment use, underwater communication, and dive planning. Upon completion of this course, divers will be certified to dive to a depth of 18 meters (60 feet) with a buddy.

Advanced Adventurer Course: This course is designed for certified Open Water Divers who want to improve their skills and gain more experience. It includes five dives, with options for deep diving, navigation, night diving, and other specialties.

Specialty Diver Courses: SSI offers a variety of specialty courses, such as wreck diving, underwater photography, and buoyancy control. These courses allow divers to focus on specific skills and interests.

Rescue Diver Course: This course teaches divers how to prevent and manage diving accidents, as well as how to respond to emergency situations. It is a challenging but rewarding course that can help divers become more confident and responsible in their diving.

The second site is a shallow dive and is much better for snorkeling. Good diving and good snorkeling don’t always mix. For optimum snorkeling & diving, a private charter customized to suit both divers and snorkelers is recommended.
