Open Water Diver

Interested in learning to scuba dive? You’ve come to the right place. During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you'll learn the skills to use SCUBA (Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus). Scuba lessons unlock the door to new adventures and amazing animal encounters. By the end of your scuba certification course, you’ll see our ocean planet through new eyes.

After successful completion of the course you will receive a PADI Open Water Diver certification card. This card can be presented at dive centers and resorts worldwide to rent scuba equipment, fill scuba tanks or book dive charters. As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, you can dive to a maximum depth of 60 feet or 18 metres. It's just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures.
