  •  Considerations for the diving equipment that suit you and your diving environment
  •  How plan and perform a dive

The great thing about this course. . oh well, basically everything, because learning to dive is just incredibly fun. You first learn to breath underwater (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to get certified as a diver.

During the course you will experience at least five dives in a pool like environment and four dives at dive sites nearby under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

What you will 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!
    If you've already tried diving in the Discover Scuba Diving experience, you can get recognition for the skills you learned (part of the full PADI Open Water Diver certification).
