During Confined Water sessions you and your instructor will practice and apply the skills you saw in the video and studied in theory. In the Open Water sessions you will demonstrate that you are able to perform these basic dive skills in an open water environment and you can finally experience the thrill of discovering an incredible new world underwater.
