PADI Open Water Course

Is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver.


You will be required to read the Open Water manual and complete the knowledge reviews at the end of each of the five chapters. Each diver will also watch a supplementary DVD that will preview skills taught by your instructor in addition to aiding visual learners. Once completed, your instructor will review any mistakes that you made or answer any questions about the course or diving in general.
There is a multiple choice exam at the end of the
program which tests your knowledge of the dive theory learned through out.


Confined Water or Pool Dives
Each course begins with confined water pool sessions where you will learn about the equipment you will be using and your introduction to the skills needed to become a certified diver. This is also where you will gain experience in controlling your buoyancy and practice safety procedures needed to become safe and responsible divers.

Open Water Dives
On the Open Water course you will complete four open water dives in the ocean. The first two dives are to a maximum of 12 metres while the final two are to 18 metres, your depth rating upon course completion.
