During your open water dives, you will repeat skills from your confined water dives that must be completed to receive your certification. Your instructor will be guiding and assisting you where necessary.
- You will be asked to apply what you have learned and repeat some of the skills already practiced in confined water, in the open water environment.
- On one of the dives, your instructor will demonstrate one new skill that will help with your direction and keep you oriented while underwater. Compass navigation will cover the very basic points which you then can build on.
- Your instructor will also tell you about the dive site, environmental orientation, emergency procedures, etc., and will introduce the dive evaluation check.
