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 Dive Source has certified thousands of people as PADI Scuba Divers over the last 20+ years
Learning to Scuba Dive with us is as easy as 1-2-3.
- Sign up for a course here at Dive Source - Then complete the dive theory portion online, at your own pace, using interactive PADI eLearning. (using a code we send you)
- Arrive for your Course - Which runs 4-5 sessions in a combination of classroom and pool...
- 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! We do ours in nearby Marmora, Ontario (no overnight accommodation needed).
Congratulations... At this point, you will be certified as a PADI OPEN WATER DIVER and your certification is good anywhere in the world for the rest of your life!
COURSE PRICE INCLUDES: Padi eLearning + Classroom/Pool training & pool scuba gear rental + PADI eLearning crewpack. Open Water certification dives take place in the spring over a single weekend in the spring.
To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be 12 years or older, in good overall health and a desire to have fun.
The Scuba Gear You Use
Dive Source provides top quality scuba equipment for you to use during the course and the only thing we recommend you own of your own is some good snorkelling gear and we offer 20% off to our students. If you are on a budget, purchase your own mask and snorkel and we can provide rental fins.
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.
For more information about this or other PADI courses have a chat with one of the DIVE SOURCE Team members.
We hope this gives you a good overview of what is involved and that you will want to jump into one of our programs. Our courses do fill quickly, so please call or come into the store to reserve your space.
