Deep Sea Diving and Marine and Aquaticlife
by Avantika Agarwal
I am a student in Paris and I would like to come to Costa Brava, Spain during the first weekend of October 2013.
I would like to go deep sea scuba diving. Being a student I cannot stay there for long, so is it possible to get scuba diving training and go into the deep within 3 days?
I assume that you are looking to do the open water dive course? And that by “deep” you mean 30 metres or more (which is what is considered deep in scuba diving).
You will not be able to dive to 30 metres with an open water qualification (this will only allow you to dive to a maximum of 12-18 metres). To dive to 30 metres you will need to do the advanced open water course.
An open water course can be done in 3-5 days (you can do the theory online before you come) and costs around €400.
An advanced open water course can be done in 2 days and costs around €300.
All the best
