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. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.
Our Open Water Diver Semi- Private class is offered over 2 days on the weekend, instead of during a week like the Group Lesson. It also is a smaller class size, so you will have more time to complete everything in a shorter period of time and have more one-on-one time with the staff.
What You Learn
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:
Confined Water Dives in a pool to learn basic scuba skills, Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!
- Knowledge Development
- Students will complete the PADI eLearning dive theory online at home, at your own pace, prior to the class start date.
- Classroom sessions will cover what you learned in the online eLearning, along with going over additional scuba diving information.
- Please note, We bill these open water dives separately as you have the option of doing your open water dives elsewhere... Like on a holiday down south, within one year of your course. However, if you do these dives with us, it is only $125 for a weekend of diving fun!
To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:
- 12 years or older (PADI eLearning requires a minimum age of 13 years due to international internet laws).
The Scuba Gear You Use
In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by a DIVE SOURCE Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.
Students are also encouraged to purchase their own personalized snorkelling gear, to ensure it fits you perfectly and is of high quality and can stand the pressure of scuba diving. We offer 20% off our regular prices for our students. If you are on a budget, we advise you still purchase your own mask and snorkel and we can provide rental fins.
The Learning Materials You Need
Students will receive a crewpack with worksheets, dive tables, and other dive planning tools to help them with their course, and even future dives. Students will also be sent a code to redeem and activate their online eLearning to do at home.
Your Next Adventure
After completing the Open Water Diver Course, you should take the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, as it is an extension of what you learn as an Open Water Diver, and can dive deeper and begin to learn other specialties.
