BSAC Ocean Diver Course

The only BSAC Diving School on Gran Canaria in the Canaries
Description If you want to learn to dive, so that you can explore the coasts around the British Isles, this is the course for you. It is possible to start the week with no previous experience of scuba diving and end the week ready to go diving anywhere in the world, with your world-recognised BSAC Ocean Diver certification. But this is not just any BSAC Ocean Diver course, as unlike other schools, all the sea dives take place in the beautiful waters of Gran Canaria's only marine reserve. So you get not only a week of fun taking the course, but you also get five dives in one of Spain and Europe's best places to dive.
You start in the pool and learn essential basic skills including breathing underwater, clearing your regulator and mask, buoyancy control, finning techniques and techniques for safe diving. You then build on these basic skills and practice them both in the pool, and then in the sea, all the time under the supervision of one of our qualified and experienced BSAC Instructors. All the teaching and support materials are used to ensure that you understand the simple physics behind diving and to give you the confidence and enthusiasm to continue diving after your course. In addition to the prescribed skills we aim to develop your confidence in the water, so that you leave us as a safe, competent and qualified diver. You practise your skills in a pool
