When you go scuba diving you are going for a longer period of time underwater to enjoy the beautiful underwater world. Our body however is not made to be in an environment wher there is no oxygen. If you are scuba diving, you use scuba gear to breathe, see and move.

People of almost all ages can practice this sport, but before you can dive, you must first learn to dive.

Learn to scuba dive

Learning to scuba dive is like driver training. During the course, you not only gain knowledge (traffic rules).You also need to learn how to handle the scuba equipment (driving the car). In addition, you have to learn how to prevent and solve problems (prevention of accidents).

Learning to scuba dive is actually very easy. In principle, everyone can learn in 15 minutes time how he or she needs to breathe and move underwater. However being safe and responsible underwater needs some more time. To do this, you not only need the necessary knowledge. Also, you need to master various skills to ensure that you are no longer a danger to the underwater world, for other divers and for yourself. During a primary course like the 'Autonomous Diver' course you will learn these skills.

After completing a scuba diving course you get a recognized diving certificate that allows you to dive worldwide. However, your ability to dive are limited to that level. Thus, for example, you can not dive deeper than 20 meters, dive only during daylight, dive only with compressed air, etc. By following specialty courses you can expand your capabilities and thus explore the underwater world more often and in multiple ways.

Specialty courses

The recreational specialty courses of the World Organisation of Scuba Diving (WOSD) are specifically designed to seamlessly connect to the WOSD primary courses. Each specialty course focuses on a specific topic which increase you pleasure and abilities during the dives.

There are also many more options available to continue diving, check this once in our courses.
