Becoming a Diver
WE PUT MORE INTO YOUR COURSE SO THAT YOU MAY GET MORE OUT OF YOUR DIVING
Some organisations will give you a certification card with as little as 4, 20 minute dives under a local pier where the certification depth of 12 metres may, or may not be reached. When you learn to scuba dive with SCUBA CULTURE you will do a minimum of 5 dives, 3 of which are shore based dives each averaging 45 minutes in duration. This will then be followed by 2 boat dives, where you will dive to the Open Water certification depth of 18 metres.
On average, our minimum underwater time is in the vicinity of 200 minutes of Open Water dive time… Compare that with 80 minutes – experience speaks for itself.
By the time you have finished your Open Water course you will also know how to assist another diver, and to resuscitate them if need be, again, we are thinking about safety, and most importantly of you, your family and loved ones.
Don’t be fooled by glossy brochures and a flashy badge. Compare apples with apples, at the end of the day, a dive certification is just that, it is a plastic card with your name on it that allows you to go and dive. The fact is that your SCUBA CULTURE certification will be your passport to safe enjoyable diving. It probably costs you about the same as another card, but it’s what you have been taught and what you have achieved that really matters. Your certification is your passport to diving anywhere in the world, your card whether SSI, TDI or NAUI, will be recognised and accepted world wide by any charter operator.
