9 hours of pool time to ensure all information and skill set goals are achieved prior to open water certification

Total Diving offers their students a total of 9 hours of pool time even on intensive week end sessions which is in most cases double that of our competition. In order to obtain the optimal benefits in terms of apprenticeship, it is crucial to train in a confined water-no stress area enabling the student to learn at his/her own pace without feeling pressured due to time constraints therefore possibly missing out on complete mastery of the necessary skills.

 Diving with Aqualung Tech drysuit 

Total diving is happy to offer the incredible possibility of completing their open water training in a dry suit. You have the availability and opportunity to dive in a famed Aqualung Fusion tek dry suit. This particular model is unbelievably flexible. In order to have fun you must first of all be comfortable. A dry suit allows a person to remain in the water longer since it keeps you warm. 

Certification with an Aqualung i300 dive computer for every one of our open water student divers

Diving needs to be a fun, safe and stress free activity. That is the reason Total Diving is very “avant-garde” where Every diver dives with a dive computer! Apprenticeship must apply to real life situations, and students must be completely ready to dive autonomously without supervision. Why stress one’s self with mathematical calculations which must be remembered under water, when the simple solution is to have a dive computer that warns about things like depth, remaining bottom time, and tissue saturation, not to mention air supply and safety stops. Simply put, It is peace of mind and personal safety at your fingertips!

Training in small groups

For increased flexibility and to therefore make it more fun to learn we ensure the groups are kept small so that our instructors and dive masters can take the necessary time to fully explain and demonstrate the required skill sets for each individual making it easier to realize your objectives. Our goal is to form confident, competent, independent divers who will enjoy their experience with us and continue to dive in the future after their certification.

Private preparation session with one of our in-store staff members

From the moment you sign up you will have the opportunity of a prep meeting with one of our experts who will take the time to listen to your concerns and guide you to make it easier for you to understand what goes on during the course. Our objective here is to offer you more than a standard course, we want it to be a memorable experience which will transform your life and your perception and appreciation of sub aquatic life.
