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 snorkeling gear! Snorkeling gear consists of a mask, snorkel, boots, fins, and surface marker buoy (SMB). Don't forget to check your email for your PADI eLearning access! The eLearning must be finished before class and typically takes 6 to 8 hours to complete. The PADI Medical form must be reviewed beforehand in case you need to obtain a doctor's approval, and can be found in our Training Forms section. Don't forget your swimsuit, towel, snorkeling gear, and eLearning completion report for the first day of class.
