Why PADI Open Water?
As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world; you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional.
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.
A PADI Jr Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 12 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 metres.
What will I do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.
How long will it take?
PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
The course structure is as follows:
Here you will experience your first breath underwater in a pool, and combined with your class room sessions learn the fundamentals of safe diving. You will practice skills that you will need when diving in open water. You need NO GEAR for the Pool Dives! We supply all!
This will be your qualifying weekend where you will put your skills, learned on the 1st weekend, into practice when diving in the ocean or a lake. You will also write your final exam after your final qualifying dive.
