Open Water Scuba Diving Certificate BaliTravel | Rex | July 14, 2011 at 12:11
It’s official!!! I just finished my Open Water Scuba course and passed! (not that it was that hard).
The dive today was pretty amazing. Went to Tulamben (the same place I went snorkeling the other day), but got to see way more of the wreck since I was under the water. The wreck site is the USAT Liberty. The 2nd dive was at Coral Garden – both at Tulamben, both 35 minutes, 18m dives with a water temperature of 27 degrees Celsius.
I’m thinking about doing the advanced open water course. I need to get my log book signed tomorrow, as I forgot to bring it today. But when I head over to the dive shop, I’ll ask about pricing and see if its feasible within my budget. Pretty sure its a good deal
though; you get 5 dives over 2 days and includes a range of things depending on what you want to do.
Main reason I want to
get advanced certfication is you are then allowed to go to 30m instead of the 18m I’m currently limited too. Talking to other divers, a lot of sights around the world operate at around 25 meters, so it would be good to have that extra distance. Besides that, you get to pick some specializations on your advanced stuff such as night dives, wreck dives, photography etc. Mainly need to sort out what they have available at the shop, but definitely sounds like it would be a good idea considering the extra possibilities it opens up.
