Become an SSI Open Water Diver with Dive BVI!
With our variety of class times and course fees, you can pick what ﬁts your schedule and budget.
With personalized training and practice time, we make sure you are truly comfortable with the skills and equipment you need underwater. The SSI Open Water Diver certiﬁcation is recognized worldwide so your diving experiences will be limitless.
An Open Water Diver course consists of 3 parts:
The academics are learned at your pace and convenience. After completion, you can attend review sessions at your favorite SSI Dive Center. SSI’s Online Training is available for ages 10 years old and up.
Next, sign up for an SSI Open Water class (Dive BVI is an SSI Diamond Dive Resort and Instructor Training Facility). For your pool and open water training, the instructor will ﬁt you to your scuba equipment and start getting you used to your “second skin”.
Open Water Sessions
You’ll be a certiﬁed Diver after successful completion of at least 4 open-water training dives where you’ll experience what you learned in the pool.
SSI’s Online Training – the scuba diving academics – is included in the price of your training! If you decide to continue your education and want to become a certified diver, you will need to sign up for an SSI Open Water class at your local SSI Dive Center (Dive BVI is an SSI Diamond Dive Resort and Instructor Training Facility). SSI’s Online Training is available for ages 10 years old and up! Our SSI Open Water Diver program starts at $525. Private Instruction is available. Call or email for details!
What you need
You will also need training materials for the academics phase (such as a DVD, Total Dive Log, etc.) available at our dive center. Other items include mask, ﬁns and snorkel; it is best to purchase quality equipment so we recommend getting these from us (if anything goes wrong, we’ll be able to provide repair service).
Our goal is for you to become comfortable in the water! Most students complete the 3-part course in a 4-5 day period. Some take a little longer, but we will not rush you through the process. We proudly follow the tenets of the SSI Diver Diamond…Knowledge, Skills, Equipment, and Experience!
The fun doesn’t need to stop there! With just a little more training, you can go even further – imagine diving in underwater shipwrecks, with sharks, or becoming an underwater photographer! Check out all of the exciting Specialty Programs you can get involved in. It’s your chance to move to the next level in your diving adventures. SSI will be a reliable buddy accompanying you on your way.
