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

SMALLER CLASSES MEANS BETTER LEARNING OUTCOMES

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. 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. Our classes include boat diving and rental gear for no extra cost as well as small classes to maximise your learning time. If you are comparing courses, make sure you check what is offered.

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of the following:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills, in a 3m deep dive pool
  • 2 Shore Dives to build on your skills
  • 2 Boat Dives to complete your learning

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 12 years or older 
  • Able to Swim 200meters confidently
  • Able to tread water for 10mins
  • Able to pass a dive medical


The Fun Part

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.

Our class sizes are kept to 4 maximum so that you get more time with your instructor. During the course, you'll learn all the skills that are needed, our confined water sessions are conducted in a 3 meter deep dive pool, we shore dive at local dive sites, and then finish the course on the boat to build on your skills under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, your rental gear is included in the price. You will learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. If however you want to purchase your own gear, you can buy anything you need with a course discount of 15% (excludes package items).

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD. Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering the learning material in an Elearning environment via the internet.
