Who Can Take This Course?

The BSAC Ocean Diver Course is the entry-level open water course that equips you with all the theory, knowledge and core skills that you need to safely begin your underwater adventures in diving. Anyone over the age of 10 years old and is medically fit to dive can take this course.

Your experienced BSAC Instructor will be there with you as you start this fantastic journey by getting you comfortable in the water as you take your first breathes underwater with the SCUBA gear. To start you'll be learning to scuba dive in confined water where you can stand up if you need to.

Here in Lanzarote we have the ideal confined water location in a local sheltered bay and you might well see a few fish too, so why would you want to stand up! Small shoals of salima and bream can be seen in the shallows along the shore and the wide-eyed flounders blend seamlessly into the sandy bottom. The damsel fish, ornate wrasse and parrot fish feed around the rocks whilst the blennies scurry round them back into their holes only to turn back around and peep out of the volcanic rock at you. What an amazing place to learn to dive!

Your diving adventure has only just begun!

What Will I be Able to Do?

As a qualified Ocean Diver you can dive buddied up with another Ocean Diver, whilst under the supervision of a Dive Manager, in familiar locations and conditions to those in which you trained.
You can also go exploring different locations and conditions when accompanied by a Dive Leader or higher-grade diver. Here at BSAC Lanzarote we are all BSAC Open Water Instructors or higher, so you'll be able to fully explore the different dive sites when on a guided dive with us.

What Are The Next Steps?

You could choose to go diving and get some experience or alternatively, you could continue your training. Training options include becoming an Advanced Ocean Diver and learning to dive to a maximum depth of 30m or taking one of the Skill Development Courses (SDC's) such as the BSAC Buoyancy and Trim Workshop course, an essential course with lots of benefits such as improved gas consumption, eligibility for other courses and even more diving fun!
