I was afraid of sharks when I boarded but after my Discover Scuba course, I conquered my fear and now I plan to get fully certified!

Open Water Checkouts (OWCO)

If you have completed the academic and confined water training for the open water certification and have a referral letter from your instructor, you may complete your open water checkouts on your dive trip with one of our instructors.

After completing and passing the 4 checkout dives, your certification will be complete and you will be certified for life! Completing the OWCO dives on a liveaboard allows you to log multiple dives during your trip so you can practice your newly learned skills and be a more competent diver quickly.
