Itinerary

Day One of your Open Water Certification Dive Course

Now that you’ve chosen to gain a license that allows you to roam the coral gardens and marine life domain of the endless blue, it will take a few steps to get there, and each one a riveting journey! Learning to dive gives you the freedom to explore the ocean with a buddy and less supervision. And on Day 1, you’ll begin this venture with class theory, and introduction to the equipment that allows you to breathe and glide weightlessly underwater, along with the possibility of new, lifelong friends! You’ll also be learning in a place of stunning tropical surrounds, with the only dive-purpose built swimming pool on the isle, and among the dazzling reefs and waters of Magnetic Island!
