WHO: Those 10 years of age and above. Ages 10-14 will receive a Junior Scuba Diver certification which depending on age has a limited depth range.

WHAT: The Scuba Diver course is your first step into the underwater world. It is the most exhilarating experience you may ever have. Imagine being in outer space without gravity, but underwater. From the time you take your first breath underwater there is no turning back.

The course is divided into three sections:

  1. Register and Get Digital Online course code: You should register several weeks in advance to have enough time to read the required material and take the appropriate tests. Additionally, we will schedule you for your personal in-store appointment with one of our staff members.
  2. Confined Water Sessions: Next step is joining one of our confined pool sessions in which you will be learning the skills required to be comfortable in the water with your scuba equipment.
  3. Open Water Training: You will complete four open water dives over a two day period – typically over a weekend.

Once you complete all three sections of training, you will receive your Scuba Diver certification card or “C-card.” This certification card is recognized worldwide and is administered for your lifetime. You may also choose to complete your open water dives with Milinko's Scuba & Swim at one of our travel destinations or when you travel on your own. Don’t forget the Scuba Diver card is just the beginning of what you can experience when deciding to adventure into the underwater world.


  • Private Classes: Available upon request.
  • The weekend schedule concludes the entire process of certification in two weekends. The first consisting of all the confined water and pool requirements. The second consists of completing the four open water training dives.

Once you have completed the first weekend of classroom and pool training you can schedule the open water dives. Open water dives: Scheduled after completion of confined water.
