This is by far our most popular course. The PADI Open Water Diver Course is the first full certification course in the PADI diving education system. During this course you will learn all the skills needed to dive confidently, independently of a dive professional.

This course, is run by our highly qualified instructors and is divided into 3 areas:

  • Academic Training (classroom and independent study)
  • Confined Water Training (swimming pool sessions)
  • Open Water Training (lake or quarry sessions)

After purchasing this course, bring your receipt with you to our store to receive your 10% discount on the purchase of your fins, mask, snorkel, and boots (snorkeling gear).  Don't forget to pick up your course materials before class!  There are 5 chapter reviews to complete before class and we will also have you look over the PADI Medical form in case you need to get a doctor's approval before any in-water training.  Don't forget your swimsuit, towel, snorkeling gear and entire Open Water crewpack the first day of class.

Course Materials

You have two options for course materials.

The PADI Open Water Diver Crewpack is the standard materials package that provides your logbook, student record file, dive computer simulator, and the PADI Open Water Diver Manual that you will use to complete your knowledge reviews.  An optional video is available for rental.  You need to obtain this package from the store or have it mailed to you at least a week before the start date of your course.

The PADI Open Water Diver Touch Certification Pack is an iOS or Android application that can be downloaded to a device.  The app provides the same information as the paper manual and incorporates video and animation to provide a multimedia experience.  The app does not expire and updates are free for life.  If you choose the app you can start your SCUBA training as soon as we send you your digital authorization code.  You will also need a Digital Enhancement Crewpack.  This Crewpack includes the physical materials you will need for class including your student record file, logbook, etc.  You can pick this package up anytime prior to the start of your course.
