Our Open Water course can be completed in 4 days. Day 1 is dedicated to knowledge development or the theoretical aspects of diving. Day 2 is for confined water training where you will be taught practical skills in a sheltered bay where you can swim with fish while taking your first breaths underwater.

Your open water dives will be done off our boats on some of the most popular dive sites in Trincomalee.
