Full description

Start your scuba adventure in the sunny Mediterranean sea, with the SSI Open Water Diver program. Have some fun in the sun in Mononaftis beach, on the northern coast of Crete, and work towards a certification that lets you dive anywhere in the world.

Join an international class with a multilingual instructor, and enjoy 2-3 action-packed days of diving and making friends. Online training is combined with 4 in-water practice sessions to ensure you have the skills and experience to feel fully comfortable when geared-up in the water.

The SSI online training program lets you study at your own pace. You can complete the academics online when you sign up, and then attend review sessions at the Dive Center in Crete. In the water, you’ll experience everything you learned through the online sessions, hands-on and head-first.

After your open water dives and passing the final exam, you’ll be a certified diver. The SSI Open Water Diver certification is recognized worldwide, so your diving possibilities are limitless. Take some time to explore the rest of the island, or head off on your next adventure.
