If you are curious about the aquatic world and want to see for yourself how it feels to breathe and move with total freedom underwater - you've come to the right place.
The Open Water Diver certification is your passport that will literally open up a whole new world of possibilities for travel, discovery, and adventure, as well as being a great way to make new friends from all over the globe. Scuba IQ is both a PADI and SDI dive school, which means that you can choose the organisation you prefer to train under. These training agencies offer equivalent levels of quality, and their certifications are internationally recognised. At the end of the day rather than trying to choose which agency is best, the most important decision is to select the best dive instructor and dive school for you. This is where our vast experience as divers and dive instructors makes us stand out from the rest, and a great choice for your introduction to scuba diving.

Being qualified to dive in open water to 18m/60 feet
Gain access to exciting dive sites all over the world
Have fun while meeting new people, and sharing experiences
Be an ambassador for the aquatic world
Become part of the global scuba diving community!
