During the 3 remaining dives you will apply the skills you have already mastered in the swimming pool to open water conditions, combined with a guided tour to explore Key Largo’s reefs. In addition to that you will learn about compass handling both at the surface and underwater. All of our open water dives are conducted on the dive boat.
