PADI Open Water SCUBA Diver Course

Price: $499.00


scuba studentsWELCOME to SCUBA DIVING!

Dive Source is located in Oshawa and is Durhams's only PADI 5 Star IDC Facility.

Our Open Water Diver scuba course is as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Sign up for your course here at Dive Source. You then go home and complete the dive theory portion online, at your own pace, using interactive PADI eLearning.

  2. Arrive for the Course (Which runs over 5 sessions in our Winter/Spring Courses):  Monday evening classroom, Wednesday evening pool, Saturday full day (classroom and pool), Sunday afternoon pool.  (Note: see below for summer course - format)

    Following Wednesday we get together for a final review, some congratulations and write a final quiz... At this point you are ready for open water certification dives

  3. 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! We do these in nearby Marmora, Ontario in the spring (no overnight accomodation needed). We have three weekends available - May 27/28, June 3/4 or June 10/11 

    Note: You may also do these open water dives elsewhere... Like on your holiday down south, within one year of your course. This is called taking a Referral.

 Congratulations.. At this point you will be certified for life as a PADI OPEN WATER DIVER and your certification is good anywhere in the world.
