About the Dive Sites We’ll Visit:
We choose these sites (Tulamben & Blue Lagoon) to conduct the Open Water Diver course not only because the diving is excellent, but the conditions are usually very calm so these are a perfect location for beginners. Using the combination of Blue Lagoon and Tulamben Bay will allow you to incorporate both shore and boat entries during your course.
Dive 1 is simply a fun dive. During dives 2, 3 and 4, you will practice skills that you learned in the pool and will gain experience enabling you to perfect your buoyancy skills and enjoy the amazing underwater scenery.
