About the Course

The Open Water Course is designed to make you a capable and confident diver, so you can focus on the journey you are on. Let us take you into the water and you will never be the same! We not only show you what gear you need and how to safely use it, but we also take you to see incredible things with like-minded people. You will be able to go to remote islands, causal weekend dives, or any other amazing adventures. Let us take you into the water we promise you will never want to get out!

Steps to get Licensed

Get started with Elearning and familiarize yourself with the theory behind diving. Once you have built an understanding of what it means to be a Diver, when we will get ready to get you in the water. You can go through the learning at your pace from anywhere with an internet connection. If of course you have any questions during the theory, reach out and we will be happy to answer.

Scuba Diver

Let us organize a day trip to a pool on the outskirts of Tokyo to conduct in-water skill-development training. In the pool, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the gear that makes breathing underwater possible. Our instructors will work to incrementally increase your skill level so that you feel comfortable for the open ocean.

Finally you're in the Ocean 🐟 Over the weekend, we will repeat the primary skills done in the pool so that you can get comfortable in less controlled conditions. At the same time, it is our priority to both find you fish but also to have an enjoyable weekend with good people. You might make a new friend, be it human or fish.
