Get Certified! You have already successfully completed the eLearning part of PADI. Take your Scuba Lesson with the PADI Open Water Diver Course. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. The full Open Water Certification will allow you to dive any where in the world to a maximum depth of 60ft/18m without the assistance of a PADI professional.
This course teaches student divers the fundamental knowledge and skills they need to dive with a buddy, independent of supervision.
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge Development (PADI eLearning ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
- 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 and a half days to complete.
For the PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. A medical questionnaire has to be completed and might indicate a contraindication to check with your doctor. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.
All of our Open Water 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, get your materials and start reading the book and watching the video. 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.
