Activity description

This Discover Scuba Diving activity is your chance to get wet and experience what scuba diving is all about. Signing up for it is a great way to decide whether getting a scuba diving certification is right for you... Although there is no doubt that you will love it!

This is a try Scuba session, not a course. At the end of this session you will receive a SSI diploma certifying that you have tried scuba diving, but that does not qualify you to dive by yourself or rent equipment. This session will, however, count as a training dive if you decide to further enrol in the Open Water Diver Certification course.

Your instructor will be by your side at all times, both in the water and outside. Open Water has a very personal and individual approach to Discover Scuba Diving, meaning that you will never be part of large groups of participants. There are only small groups to ensure your maximum comfort and safety.
No prior experience needed nor expected to participate in this activity.

The diving site
The Split Open Water Diving Center is located in the Radisson Blu Resort. So if you are staying there, you have no excuses to not participate in this training. Actually you will dive in the Home Reef site in front of the Diving Center. A shallow bay with no currents, no waves, but with clear water and an abundant sea life. You will enjoy diving in the Adriatic Sea, among schools of fish, octopus, cuttle fish and others. The sea bed is sandy with small reefs from place to place.

Open Water uses high quality MARES equipment. The diving centre owns a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) of 7 metres.

In case of bad weather Open Water has other interesting things to do, from indoor pool to panoramic drives to national parks or visiting some traditional konoba for a good croatian lunch!

Offer Description

Upon meeting at the dive center, you will discuss about the beautiful experience you are about to have with the entire Open Water team. You will watch demo videos and discuss the basic rules of scuba diving, the do’s and don’ts of this activity. You will put on your diving equipment and your instructor will explain how to use it. Once you are ready you will submerge and explore the clear bay and hope to meet loads of fish. After the dive, you will also have a briefing and you will proudly receive your diploma and pictures.

It is possible to have your pictures taken as well as videos of the experience.

Premier plongée pour mes amis et moi même! Instructeurs au top (un jeu parlant français donc hyper pratique). Une plongée que l’on a tous adoré. Des photos en souvenir pour ne pas oublier ce moment ☺️

Nettes Diving Team, nur leider gab es keine Urkunde am Ende wie beschrieben, obwohl nochmal per Mail angefragt!

Superbe !

La plongée est incroyable, fatigante mais ça vaut vraiment le coup. On vous équipe, on vous donne les instructions et puis vous plongez pour nager avec les poissons.

Perfect for first-time divers

It was exactly what we expected. We tried scuba diving for the first time, the introduction was short and neat and gave us all the information we needed beforehand. And then dive away.
