Open Water Diver


The IANTD Open Water Diver course is your first step into the diving realm. At BC Sidemount we will guide you step by step in the discovery of this new world so that you become a confident diver. For this reason we do not believe that this course is achievable in three or four days.

The core and fundamental skills for the open water diver are imperative to your diving education and will require time, repetition and patience!

At this end of this course you will be a confident and self-sufficient diver. The course has a maximum of three students. The low student-to-instructor ratio allows more personal, thorough instruction and to provide the best possible service.

During this course you will also learn how to use a drysuit as we dive in cold water.
