General Description

This is the basic scuba diving course, for those that want to learn how to dive. This course gives you all the necessary knowledge and experience to simply go diving.
Taught at the Manta facility, the course includes: learning the principles of scuba diving that are necessary to plan and execute a dive trip, pool sessions to practice important diving skills and 4 open water dives from a boat at the local dive sites.
The knowledge development will concentrate on the fundamentals of scuba diving, including physical and physiological principles, such as: buoyancy, pressure, depth and breathing compressed air. You will learn about diving equipment and the manner of using it, underwater communication, safety measures and more.
The pool sessions are where you will practice Scuba skills necessary for diving and handling the dive gear in open water.
The four open water dives at the Cabo San Lucas Marine Park are the highlights of the course and will reinforce your knowledge and develop your skills. For each dive, after practicing a set of skills which were learned in the pool, you will have time to explore the dive site. Local Diving & Open Water Course galleries will give a good idea of what you can see during the course dives.
