Diving is an adventure. Every time again. The globally recognized IDD Junior Open Water Diver course teaches you everything you need to know to explore the wonderful world underwater together with your adult buddy. Experience what it's like to float completely weightless. At IDD it's all about fun and safety. You will learn in a natural way step by step everything that is needed. To get to know all the basics, you start with theory and in the pool or confined water. This way you'll be well prepared for the open water.

What are we going to do?

We can offer tailor-made solutions to the student, because we work with a modular learning system.

NOTES. When you turn 12 years old, your junior open water certification can be converted to Open Water Diver.
