To enroll in a 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. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.
What will you learn?
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge Development (independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
- Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!
What scuba gear will you use?
In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. The equipment you use will be provided by us.
How long will it take?
When you sign up you will be able to start immediately! You will be able to self study and revise what you’ve learned with our Instructor in our own comfortable classroom for up to 2 class sessions which averages 4 hours each. You can arrange the best time with our Instructor to accommodate the schedule.
We will conduct up to 2 Confined Water sessions for basic skill learning in a pool or shallow water. This typically takes 4 hours each. If you require more training sessions, the Instructor will accommodate and schedule them for you at minimal additional cost.
