Open Water Course
The SSI Open Water Course is the first stage in the SSI system of Certification. Your Open Water certification allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters. During this course you will be taught by one of our professional, experienced Instructors. You will learn all the essentials of dive theory and to master the required skills in confined water our spacious swimming pool. Then you will put these skills and knowledge into practice in the Open Water a one of our beautiful dive sites located around Gili Trawangan, Meno and Gili Air.
The course takes 3 to 4 days and includes 4 dives in the Open water. We deliberately keep the class sizes to a maximum group size of 4 students per instructor. This means everyone will get the most out of the course, and when you dive in the pristine clear waters around the Gilis you will be able to fully appreciate the Turtles, Reef Sharks, various Rays, and an abundance of fish of many varieties. The environment of the Gilis is perfect for taking your first steps into the Underwater World! We are lucky to see many diverse sea creatures on our dives, even at shallow depths on beginner dives.
Once you have completed your Open Water Course the chances are you will have a taste for more and will want to continue your dive education. Its always a good idea to go for a few dives shortly after you have completed the course, not only to reinforce the skills you have learned but also to enjoy the incredible variety of aquatic life the Gilis have to offer. After that and if you have caught the diving bug like so many of us before you, why not continue with your SSI Advanced Adventurer course! For more information please contact us.
