Learn to Scuba Dive with one of our PADI Open Water Courses. It’s your first step into the exciting underwater world! This course will educate you in all you need to know in order to enjoy recreational diving all over the world. Its emphasis is in allowing you to understand the basic concepts behind scuba diving and for you to be comfortable and feel confident using scuba equipment. In the program you will be trained in the safe and correct donning of equipment, as well as water entry and exits using a Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) as well as the affect on you in the underwater environment and vice-versa. We will also help you to appreciate the underwater world, which allows us to be its guest.


What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!


Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • Minimum Age: 10 Years Old (there will be an additional fee of $100 for 10-11 year olds due to the restrictions on class size)
  • Must be in good physical health (Physician's approval may be needed)
  • Able to swim 200 yards unassisted and tread water for 10 minutes


The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least two pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.


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 Blue Water Divers Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course. Students are required to purchase their own snorkeling gear which includes a Mask, Fins, Snorkel, and Booties. 


The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course.  With Blue Water Divers, the learning materials are included in the course fee and you can do one of these 3 options: book package & DVD, touch tablet (we supply the code to download) & DVD, or Elearning (we supply the code) which completes all your academics prior to class online via the internet. 

Contact Blue Water Divers to personalise the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.
