Mermaids and Unicorns : Childhood Dreams

Me Open Water Dives? What what? ... sure why not add that to this years bucket list!

So my brother says, best is to start diving courses here in the city, then end that with a stress free dive 
trip to an island , his beloved island Perhentian Kecil. He tells me After successfully completing the theory and and pool work, he will take me on to my open water dives. Typically he says i would have to do these dives over the course of 2 days. Scuba diving certification usually requires 4 or 5 successful open water dives. YOWSERS! 

Mermaid Me

Breathing under water, swimming with mermaids riding unicorns of course they were my childhood dreams , i should start planning for this adventure immediately. Surely i am not alone in this. You've wanted to have a go ever since you  were a kid too, well its possible, it is. I was told that you never forget your first open water dives, and breathing under water.. Well the experience may take a minute or two to get use to, pass that and you are literally in a different world. I cant wait.

Will you follow me on my diving adventure? Comment to let me know. After numerous coaching sessions and extensive personal research, Here is what i found on how and where to start with. Lets first identify the types of Dives available. Read my quick 3 steps..

3 Steps 3 Minutes - Dive Dive Dive

1. PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience

Who: You want to try diving to see if you like it.

Why: You need a little convincing before you sign up for certification.

What: You’ll see and feel what it’s like to wear scuba equipment. At your pace, you’ll take your first breath underwater, in a pool-like environment, all while under the guidance of a PADI Professional. #fred00scuba thinks that once you try it, you’re going to love it.

Next steps: If you decide you want to learn to dive, check out the options below.

2. PADI Scuba Diver Course

Who: You want to learn to dive, but you don’t have time for the whole Open Water course.

Why: This is the “Study Guide” version of the Open Water Diver course. It comes with the caveat that you can only dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Pro, to a max depth of 12 meters/40 feet.

What: Comprised of some knowledge development, some time in the pool and two Open Water dives, it’s the fast track to learning to scuba dive. The skills you master in this course can count toward the requirements for the Open Water Diver Course.

Next steps: When you have more time, you can enroll in the RAID or PADI Open Water Diver Course and complete your certification.

3. PADI Open Water Diver Course

Who: You’re sold. You want to be a certified diver.

Why: This is where you earn a scuba certification, a certification that proves you’re a diver who can dive on your own, without the supervision of a PADI Professional. You’ll need this to buy or rent gear and to get air fills.

What: This course consists of Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water dives.

Next Steps: Go diving!  Like most things the more you apply, the more experience you have, and in this case the better diver you’ll become. Once you’re certified, you can check out other diving courses that interest you. More on that later on.

Depending on the level of certainty and your schedule, you now know three different ways to get started scuba diving! If you would like to meet up and explore the possibilities fill in the form here and will start
