PADI Open Water Diver course

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Online knowledge development ( E learning) to understand basic principles of scuba diving. This is done in your own time prior to starting your confined water dives. Allow 8-10 hours  to complete this. 
  • Confined water dives to learn basic scuba skills, this is done over 2 days in our indoor heated pool.
  • Open water dives to review your skills and explore!

What is included

  • Try before you buy! If you are a little nervous or just not sure if diving is for you, book in for a try dive and if following this you book on our Open Water course we will take the cost of the Try Dive of your course fees. 
  • 50% discount on your first boat trip with us after certification
  • All scuba gear is provided during the course, this includes 7ml wetsuit, hood and gloves if necessary
  • All of this comes with a money back guarantee! If after the first day of your pool sessions you decide diving is not for you we will refund your course costs minus the elearning fee of $200


Students as young as 10 years old can participate in this programme, however our experience shows that a more suitable age is 12 years old. 
All participants must be able to swim 200 metres non-stop & tread water for 10 minutes unassisted.

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. During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.
