So the Caribbean Sea has captivated your attention, and you are ready to put on scuba gear and explore the reefs of Taganga… and enjoy underwater adventures around the world!
You want to learn the theory behind diving and the skills necessary to make you a safe, independent diver. Let our professional dive instructors share their knowledge and experience of scuba as they teach you how to safely explore beneath the sea as a certified open water diver. Over three days, you will learn the skills necessary to dive, and you will practice them in open sea conditions under the supervision of your instructor.
Day one of the course begins in the shop with videos, assigned reading and homework, and an explanation of scuba diving and the scuba skills you will perform. You will then put on your equipment and head to Taganga Bay to practice each skill with your instructor in shallow water. The following two days, you will complete four open water dives in Tayrona Park, working on skills and having fun exploring with your instructor.
