In this training we dive outside with a Mares XR1 drysuit and heating (if necessary)
The SSI Open water diver course combined with a dry suit (and dry suit specialty training) for outdoor diving, wonderfully comfortable warm and dry diving is a unique experience and for the North European waters also an excellent choice. After all, you can dive all year round. ! Do you still find it a bit fresh (winter) then we just put the heating under water and we guarantee you that it is warmer than a diver in the tropics with a 5 mm wet suit!

The SSI Open Water Diver course is, in our opinion, the best way to start diving. Not only is this training your first step in the diving world but also a very important one. In this course you will learn all the skills you need for the rest of your 'dive' life. It is therefore very important that during this course sufficient attention is paid to learning skills and gaining sufficient knowledge.
What does an SSI Open Water Diver (OWD) course consist of?
In general, an Open Water Diver course consists of three parts: theory, pool training and open Water sessions, the most important element? that is fun ... but we do not count that ... we are happy to explain the different components to you personally.
The dive theory:
The SSI system allows you to choose when you want to study, super easy on your PC, Ipad or phone both online and offline, so you can learn the information at your own pace when it fits best in your schedule. The theory lessons and swimming pool training will enhance everything you have learned.
The swimming pool lessons:
For swimming pool and open water training, the SSI instructor will provide you with diving equipment so that you can sit comfortably in this 'second skin'. There is plenty of practice time to adapt to the underwater world before you start the open water training dive.
You will complete at least four open water dives and get the chance to put everything you have learned in the pool into practice during this open-water dive a new world opens up for you that we realize all too well and therefore we also make some "fun diving" that is not only fun but also very instructive, diving you learn by doing it!
You succeed and then? the adventure has a sequel:
The pleasure does not have to stop here! If you are successful, you can dive around the world with your buddy and with a little more training you can go even further. For example, you can dive underwater to wrecks, dive with sharks or you can become an underwater photographer.
