Full description
Get the perfect introduction to diving with the SSI Basic Diver program which has been designed to offer you a taste of scuba diving. Discover the underwater world within the protected area of the Professor Luiz Saldanha Marine Park, enjoying the most extensive biodiversity in Europe, before starting your official certification program. The program is internationally recognised by SSI (Scuba Schools International) and Wild Sea Europe.

Start your program with a theoretical session, including a security briefing and environmental awareness session. Then, enjoy 2 scuba diving sessions: 1 adaptation dive in confined waters, with some exercises to improve your water comfort level, and 1 exploration dive within the protected area of the Professor Luis Saldanha Marine Park in order to truly experience scuba diving.

After your program, receive a free e-course on Marine Ecology, in addition to your SSI Basic Diver certification. This certification allows you to dive under the direct supervision of an SSI Open Water Instructor to depths shallower than 12 meters, for a period of 6 months after the certification is obtained. In the same period, you may upgrade this certification to a SSI Open Water Diver (certified diver).
