The one day SSI Basic Diver program is where your curiosity starts to become confidence. Our experienced instructors will be with you at each step to see your first scuba diving adventure turn into a safe and unforgettable experience.

"My hopes were high arriving for my courses and I was not disappointed. From the moment I arrived Brandon and Doris were amazing to be around. Helpful, organised and a great bit of craic!" DionneTay1984 Tripadvisor review 2019
The theoretical basics of diving and equipment as well as basic practical skill are the focus of this one day course. All of he practical skills that you will apply during your open water dive will first be demonstrated in shallow water after which you will have some time practicing them. After the open water dive and theory are done you will have earned your SSI Basic Diver certification. This beginner level certification allows you to dive to 12 meters when accompanied by a SSI professional for the next 6 months. Additionally the dives and knowledge learned can be counted towards your SSI Open Water Diver course.

Once you arrive at the centre, we take care of the necessary paperwork and find your equipment. Then off to the classroom for a short theory session.
