SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Course
The adventure begins! Imagine watching the water level move up your mask as you slowly go below the surface - and continue to breathe! It's the most exciting feeling imaginable. The SDI Scuba Diver course will teach you everything you need to know to independently and competently scuba dive with a buddy - on your own to explore and discover.


Scuba Diver is the SDI entry level scuba certification course. It provides the fundamental knowledge and skills to scuba dive. Upon successful completion of this course, graduates are considered competent to engage in open water diving activities without supervision, provided the diving activities and the areas dived approximate those of training.




The minimum number of open water dives is four. They will be all scuba dives. No more than two scuba dives may be made on a single day during the course. Open water training may be completed in two days with two scuba dives on one day and two additional scuba dives on the other day. All open water training must take place during daylight hours. Sixty feet (18 m) is the maximum depth for any open water training dives during the course.



Age. Minimum is 15 years for Scuba Diver certification. (Junior certification for ages 10 - 14 years is allowed. See “Policies Applying to All Courses”, Age, Junior Certification.”)
