Recreational Diver 1 is the first course to take you beneath the surface while developing your independence as a new diver. From shallow reefs to historic wrecks, you get to decide where you want to play.
Whether you are new to the diving world, you’ve taken a course outside of GUE before, or you’re looking to improve your skills after a few years of not diving, the GUE Recreational Diver 1 course is a great starting point. This course will build the foundations for your diving skills no matter what attracted you to diving.
