- Why PADI Open Water?
As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional.
If you already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, contact Andy on firstname.lastname@example.org to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water program.
- What do I need to start?
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. You must be older than the age of 14 to begin the PADI Open Water Diver program. For those of you who are not above the age of 14 and would like to participate in the PADI Open Water Diver Program, then the PADI Junior Open Water Diver program is available to you. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.
A PADI Junior Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 11 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
- What will I do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.
- How do I book?

- How long will it take?
There are 3 scheduling options. As PADI programs are performance based, you proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
The standard schedule offers the cheapest option. This requires you to fit in to our regularly monthly schedule - Click here to see a specimen Schedule for this Open Water Course and Referral option.
Alternatively, for a small surcharge, you can choose to transfer between schedules as often as you wish to create a highly flexible training schedule.
Finally, if you want a totally bespoke, intensive or one-to-one course, we can structure this for you although the costs will be higher, depending on the additional pool and open water sessions that are required.
