OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver Course....with..... DIVE SOURCE

COVID UPDATE: We are open for business and our courses are taking place regularily including during the winter months in the pool. We are following all government and PADI Scuba training guidelines in regards to social distancing and disinfection of scuba equipment and we are incorporating more zoom type classroom sessions rather than in person sessions for now.

THIS IS THE COURSE TO START WITH & BECOME A CERTIFIED DIVER!

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts... With Dive Source and the PADI Open Water Diver course,  which is the world's most popular scuba course and allows you to dive anywhere in the world the rest of your life!

Learning to Scuba Dive with us is as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Sign up for a course at Dive Source -  You then complete the dive theory portion online, at your own pace, using interactive PADI eLearning. This takes 10-12 hours to complete and must be done before the course start date. (Not sure about online eLearning? - Sign up for a Free Preview of the Online course right here and try it out.)

  2. Arrive for your Course  - Which is a combination of classroom and pool... 

  3. Go diving on your Open Water Certification Dives*... To finish your PADI Open Water Diver Certification you need to complete four certification dives in open water (Lake, River Ocean...), which are more of a reward than a test, as you are actually going scuba diving!

    (*Note: During our winter courses these open water dives take place in the Spring on a single weekend of your choice which is either May 29/30 or June 5/6 )

 *For those of you who might have heard of other training agencies like NAUI, TDI, SDI, SSI, ACUC, NASDS, PDIC, BSAC, GUE etc. We are very familiar with them as well and several of our instructors are also certified with them as well. However, we primarily offer PADI courses to our clients as they have the best and most recognized training system in the world and you will never have a problem with your PADI certification being recognized.
