Interested In Diving But Not Certified?
A non-certified diver on a dive charter yacht has a variety of possibilities, from those who want to try diving (test the waters, so to speak!) to others who want to complete an entire Openwater Diver Course and get certified while on vacation.
Discover Scuba (Resort course). Introducing scuba diving is the main goal of this course. This course consists of an orientation, training in basic abilities in calm water that is shallow enough to stand in, and a controlled dive to a maximum depth of 40 feet under the supervision of the instructor.
Open Water Diver Course. The entry-level scuba diving certification is this one. The course is divided into three sections: 1) Classroom instruction using a textbook, lecture, and video, along with quizzes and assessments; 2) water skill practice in calm, pool-like settings; and 3) The four to five dives of the open water checkout dives, which include finishing particular exercises on each dive.
Referral Training (Open Water Checkout Dives). This is the most effective and usual way to become a qualified diver. The open water checkout dives are completed in the warm, crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean after the aspiring diver completes the classroom and pool sessions at home with, for instance, their neighborhood dive shop or YMCA. As a result, there is more time for diving and other activities and less time for studying.
