Can non-swimmers go scuba diving?
YES! Non-swimmers who want to experience real-life powers like breathing underwater can enroll in a DSD program, where an experienced and qualified dive professional will accompany you

Becoming a certified Open Water Diver typically takes around 3 to 4 days, although the exact duration of the course depends on how quickly you develop your diving skills, comfort level, and confidence.
