Ocean Diver course

Learning to scuba dive opens up an exhilarating world of underwater adventure and can be a life-changing experience.

If you’re keen to learn to dive, the BSAC’s Ocean Diver course is the place to start. This entry-level open water diver qualification will equip you with the core skills to dive to a maximum of 20 metres in open water, in the UK and abroad. Read on to hear what real divers say about the open water course.

The BSAC Ocean Diver course is open to anyone from the age of 12. 

You’ll just need to demonstrate that you can comfortably swim 200m, and the only kit you’ll need is a swimsuit and towel.

Your instructor will start by getting you comfortable breathing underwater in a pool or sheltered water and then develop your skills so that you are competent to dive safely in open water. After that you’ll head out for a series of at least four dives to develop your skills and confidence in open water.

On your open water diving course, you’ll:

  • Learn how to use basic dive gear, including your mask and snorkel. 
  • Control your buoyancy and underwater movements
  • Understand your basic scuba diving safety skills – you’ll find out the importance of time, depth and gas
  • Discover how to plan and manage your diving.

The ocean diver course includes six theory modules, at least five sessions in sheltered water, and at least four open-water dives.

Our ocean diver course is continually assessed. So, after your classroom and in-water training and a short theory exam,  you’ll have the grounding to continue your scuba diving journey as an open water diver.

In order to get more dives in the beautiful Pembrokeshire waters, feel free to join our dive club called BSAC Scavenger Dive Boat Club. Also, find us on Facebook here.

I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths. My real passion lies in combining mountains and water and as such you’ll often find me either in the mountains altitude diving, or in the mountains ice diving. Both exhilarating and peaceful – allowing me to regenerate the inner me, whilst pushing myself physically and mentally.
