PADI - Open Water Diver Course


This course is to finish the Open Water Diver Course:

  • On two days you will do 4 Open Water Dives from the boat to review your skills and explore our underwater world with your PADI dive instructor!
  • It takes only 2 days to complete.


For the PADI – Open Water Diver Referral Course (or Junior PADI – Open Water Diver Referral Course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need a referral paper filled out by a diving instructor, which confirms that you did both the theory part and the pool part with a diving instructor. The referral must not be older than 12 months.  A medical questionnaire has to be completed and might indicate a contraindication to check with your doctor.


All of our PADI – Open Water Diver Courses are private or semi private. We can start every day you want us to. Stop by at our dive shop to enroll in the course. Your PADI Instructor will schedule time with you to check your progress and make sure you understand important scuba diving information.


In the PADI – Open Water Diver Course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD) and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperate or cold water.
