Scuba Diving Courses


Nederlandse Onderwatersport Bond

The Seadragons is affiliated with the Dutch Underwater Sports Association (NOB) and provides students with NOB-certified scuba diving courses. For beginners to advanced divers and from
basic- to specific applied courses (for example, cave or drift dives), we will provide courses suited for everyone.

1* Open water diver

If you want to learn how to dive, this course is precisely what you need. During this 1* (first star) course, you will learn all about the most common diving materials and the basics of diving. Before you get your certificate, you’ll learn some diving theory. The first diving skills will be reached in a swimming pool to maintain a high safety standard. After learning the basics and you feel comfortable with the underwater techniques, you will go outside to dive for a minimum of 7 times with your instructor. After successfully completing the course, you receive the 1* dive certificate, with which you can dive up to 20 meters deep with a buddy worldwide.

(Currently given at W.S.D.A. The Seadragons, however, there is a waiting list)

2* Advanced open water

This 2* (second star) course is for those interested in learning more about diving in harder circumstances, such as tidal waters and after sunset. You’ll learn how to help your buddy when he or she is in danger and how to deal with unexpected events. In other words, this course is very useful if you want to dive more often. The 2* dive certificate is also valid all around the world.

3* Divemaster

This course is designed for divers who already have much experience in diving and are ready for the next step: coaching and teaching other people how to dive. Besides this, you’ll learn how to react in situations of emergency. One of the subjects that are mainly discussed is decompression diving. To achieve this certificate, you must also know how to resuscitate and administer oxygen. After learning all these skills, you will become a dive master.
