Full description
Take part in a globally-recognized certification program that will be sure to kick start your newfound passion in scuba diving. Whether you're a local or visiting Lisbon on holiday, this is a fantastic outdoor adventure that is not only fun, but will leave you with the certification you need to take part in other scuba diving adventures in the future.  You will be diving within the protected area of the Marine Park with Professor Luiz Saldanha, part of Arrabida Natural Park. By the conclusion of your adventure, you will receive the SSI Open Water Diver certification (ISO 24801-2). This program provides you with the knowledge and training necessary to dive autonomously with an equally or more qualified buddy, in environments equivalent with their training and to depths shallower than 18 meters. It also allows you to continue your training further with specialty training courses.
