Super stoked! Got Open Water Certified with Tiago who was a great instructor with tons of knowledge about scuba diving. He made it super easy to feel comfortable under water. Looking forward to doing an Advanced Course sometime in the near future!

You should not fly for 12 hours after a single dive and for 18 hours after multiple dives. Flying before you dive has no negative impacts.
