the team there.They will go through the various components of the Open water course with you and then you will begin the course after this.
The PADI Open Water course consists of confined water training followed by 4 open water dives. The confined water training in Dahab is actually done in the sea in the shallow water in the Lighthouse area. it has a sloping sandy bottom making it perfect for training dives.
You continue today with the confined water training dives where you will learn to master a number of tasks which include mask clearing, out of air situations and controlled emergency ascents. There is also some theory to be completed in order to qualify as a PADI Open water scuba diver and this will be done in between dives with your instructor and also in the evenings after your days diving.
You continue the course today with the open water dives which is where you now are able to go out and enjoy some of the other dive sites of Dahab. Some tasks will need to be done again whilst on the dives and your instructor will let you know before each dive which task he will ask you to complete.

be allowed after your last day before you fly.You will now do your remaining 2 open water dives required in order to complete the course. You will also be required to do a final exam which you will need to pass in order to become a PADI Open Water Diver.
