PADI Open Water Diver Course

Now is the time

Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI. PADI is a dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.


Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You will also earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification that is recognized worldwide. Also, you earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions. Also you may make four open water (ocean or lake) dives.

Finally, you can learn too!

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. At some point in the course, your PADI Instructor will ask you to demonstrate the ability to swim 200 metres/yards. This will be without swim aids or 300 metres/yards with mask, fins and snorkel and complete a bit of paperwork, to get you on your way. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, fear not. There is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.
