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

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.
You don’t have to wait to get going. With PADI eLearning and the PADI Open Water Diver Course Online, you can start right now! The PADI Open Water Diver Course Online lets you learn the background information you need before each dive at your own pace through friendly, interactive learning.
Before booking please review the PADI medical questionnaire at the bottom of this page. Answer the medical questions honestly for your safety and ours. If all answers are No you are fit to dive, if you answer Yes to any of the questions, you will need sign off by a Doctor.
Book and pay online and receive your Padi elearning key emailed to you.
