What the SSI Basic Diver experience consists of


Your instructor will show you a video, which explains the basic theory and skills necessary to take your first steps in the water. After that, your instructor will show you how to properly use your equipment and answer any questions you might have.

Confined Open Water Skills

Confined water dives are training dives in shallow water. Here in Malta this will be done in the shallow part of the open sea. During your confined session, you will learn basic scuba skills such as how to clear and recover your regulator and how to clear your mask. Your instructor will guide you through these skills until you feel comfortable in the water.

Open Water Dive

After the confined skills, your instructor will take you on a guided dive to a maximum depth of 12 m.
