Child price: Same price as adults
Please be aware of: The course contains 12 hours intense theory classes. We therefore ask parents to evaluate if the child is able to complete this. As an alternative, there is a Scuba Diver Certification, which is exactly half of the Open Water course. Many dive centres recommends this for young children, because it is always possible for the student to add on the last 2 days, and receive the full Open Water Certification at a later point in time.
