Minimum Open Water Dives : 2 over 1 day

Determine the average number of kick cycles AND average amount of time required to cover a distance of approximately 30 metres/100 feet while swimming underwater at a normal, relaxed pace.

Navigate (without surfacing) to a predetermined location and return to within 6 metres/20 feet of the starting point using a compass and estimated distance measurement (kick cycles or time).

Fix a specific underwater location to be relocated on a future dive, using two permanent sets of landmarks with an angle of at least 60° between them, or using a compass bearing.
