Your Open Water Diver Course in Safaga: Individual & Professional
Individual support is our standard! We give diving courses only in very small groups and take our time. This way we are able to teach diving to the more “cautious” students, unlike large diving schools.
Your beginner diving course, the Open Water Diver, runs over 4 days. Your diving course is divided into theory and practice. For the theory we use our modern training room and diving literature.
The practice of your Open Water Diver course in Safaga takes place in the fascinating Red Sea. Enjoy the warm water and the sunshine! Let the fishes swarm around you. Where else in the world do you have the opportunity to learn to dive in such beautiful conditions?
We have the claim that you can dive anywhere in the world after completing a diving course with us.
Duration: 4 days (without previous knowledge possible, under 10 years only accompanied by parents)
Price: 340,- EUR per person
