What to Expect During the Waves, Tides & Currents Course?

Your SSI Waves, Tides & Currents course begins when you enroll and gain access to the digital learning materials, which you are required to complete prior to arriving at our Bali diving school. When you arrive at our dive centre for your course, we will finalize any administrative details and then the excitement of your in-water training begins!

  • Demonstrate an entry appropriate for waves
  • Control buoyancy and movement in a current
  • Descend using a reel line
  • Demonstrate a free descent

After the dives, you will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before returning to our dive centre with a newfound confidence and skill set!
