Take your fascination with scuba diving to the next level by getting certified as a SSI Open Water Diver. On this trip, you'll complete four open water dives, of 45-mins each, going up to 60-feet deep in the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea.
But before you take the plunge, you'll learn the proper methods and techniques of diving during classroom sessions with a certified dive instructor. In the swimming pool at the dive centre, you'll also practice these skills and put the theory to test. During your open water dives, you'll swim across schools of lively, coral reef fish and have fun navigating an underwater paradise, largely left undiscovered by most people.
