open water-diver

We offer this class for at least 3 months each year, from april to october. It takes place up to 4 times a week. In our class-rooms you learn stress free on the highest possible level. We work with material of the brands Aquallung, Mares, Apeks and Trebelight. The equipment is on the newest page of technology and we take its cleaning, such as restauration very seriously.

Enjoy the optimal location of our diving center. In a friendly and welcoming atmosphere our professional instructors teach you everything you need to know and attentively guide your excursion to the colorful under water-world.

We recommend you to book in advance since our classes include 6 people only to guarantee the best learning success and safety.

You may choose between 2 different kinds of classes. No prior knowledge is needed for the both of them. The only difference is the description of your final certificate – if you want to be able to dive alone eventually, or only on guided tours.

diving classes with certificate to dive independently:

  • open water-diver – 14 years and older
  • junior open water-diver – 10 to 13 years

The open water-diver-class helps you to enter the beautiful under water-world. It is the first step to becoming a professional diver since you will be able to dive without the guidance of an instructor after recieving your certificate. The theroy-part of the class takes 2,5 hours and includes 5 modules that lead you to planning and supervising your own dives safely. After that the practice-part begins and teaches you everything you need to know for stress free adventures in the ocean. From that point all doors are open – you may use your new knowledge on diving vacation or even persue the way to a professional diver or future instructor.
