Day 4

Exam Day

A great start with the all familiar breakfast – Fresh, Honest, and Local – to begin another day of open sea and a delicious opportunity to be enchanted by this experience. Prepare yourself for the exciting day and the final award after all the hard work as a certified Category 1 underwater diver on successfully implementing of your theory and practice.

On the Forth and final day, you will meet at  Zanjice  Herceg Novi beach to complete your final two open water dives in the Blue Grotto.The exam in English is followed by a practice exam which involves supervised scuba diving to a sunken boat 10 - 15 meters underwater. You get to dive on one of the shipwrecks that lies below in the crystal clear waters. Upon returning (and passing) you will be issued a temporary certification card so you can start diving right away.   Your permanent license will arrive in as little as 7 days and it can be sent anywhere in the world.  You will now also be qualified to take the PADI Advanced class as well as numerous specialty classes like Wreck Diver and Underwater Photographer

The Blue Grotto-With crystal-clear waters that are transparent down to the cave’s 13meters deep seafloor, the pale-blue waters that strangely enough are several degrees warmer than the water outside the cave…When entering this blue cave, at first, seems like a daunting experience – the rock above the entrance is low and as your eyes adjust, everything seems to be cast in extreme darkness. However, after realizing that the cavern is large enough to accommodate several boats, you pass a small bend and realize why this natural wonder is called the Blue Cave.

Everyone who has visited has come back excited and full of stories. Some who have a heightened sense of the artistic describe swimming in the cave as “descent into the blue” because of the amazing combination of blue sea and the various shade of blue on the walls of the cave caused by the refraction of light.
