The SSI Basic Diver course is a step further than simply trying diving for the first time although you do not obtain an official diver certificate. However, you will obtain a certificate stating that if you do the Open Water Diver course in the following 6 months, one of these two Basic Diver dives will count towards the dives necessary in that course and you will receive a discount on the final price.
The SSI Basic Diver course is the ideal course to take between your first dives and going on to follow an official diving certificate course. Ideal for those who enjoyed trying diving for the first time and are looking for more experience but perhaps do not have the time or need to take a full Open Water Diver course.
Online theory classes will teach you basic knowledge about the world of diving and you will also go over these concepts and more when you meet our instructor to carry out the practical part of the course. We will check you have understood the basics of diving and that you are aware of what situations could put you at risk and how to react. You will then carry out 2 controlled dives: the first to experience the sensation of diving, swimming and floating as you do some simple exercises, while on the second dive you will work more intensely on buoyancy and gain confidence about diving as you enjoy the biodiversity of our coastline.
As you know, we are all scientists in love with the sea so we won’t let you finish the course without finding out a bit more about marine biodiversity. How? We’ll give you a talk on marine biology as part of the course, making it easier for you to recognize the wildlife you will come across on your first dives.
When you finish the course, we will give you a certificate stating that if you move on to do the Open Water Diver course in the following 6 months, one of the two Basic Diver dives will count as one of the dives necessary to complete that course and you will receive a discount on the final price. Are you ready to try diving with us?
