OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

Take the plunge, learn to dive!

Learning to dive with the PADI Open Water course is a 3-stage process:

    • THEORY - You begin your journey with PADI's eLearning which you complete at home. You will then review it together with your Instructor & classmates at the first session of your course.
    • POOL TRAINING - You begin learning the basic techniques of Scuba Diving in a swimming pool. Your Instructor will ensure you are comfortable before you move out into the ocean.
    • OPEN WATER TRAINING - Open Water training dives are where you put the skills you learned into practice in the "real world" and are able to discover the excitement and enjoyment of exploring the underwater world.
