OpenWater Diver course
If you have always wanted to take diving lessons, experience an unparalleled adventure and see the world under the waves, this is where everything begins. If you do not have certification as a diver, this is the first level, where you should start. The course is called Open Water Diver. Millions of people have learned to dive and then discovered the wonders of the aquatic world through this course.
The course lasts 3 days, where you will make a total of 6 dives (5 shore dive's and 1 boat trip)
At the end of the course, you will have an international qualification with which you can dive anywhere in the world to a maximum depth of 18 meters.

Why the Costa Brava?
Without a doubt, it is the best diving place on our coast. The diving in the city of Barcelona is not good and lacks much life... the bottom is very fine sand or mud and there is usually not good visibility.
By comparison, diving on the Costa Brava is spectacular. There is a lot of marine life and the visibility is usually very good! It is the perfect place to dive and only 1 hour from Barcelona.
