The PADI Open Water Diver is designed so certified divers can dive safely and independently.
The PADI Open Water Diver Course is the most popular and important among all PADI courses. During this course you will receive the knowledge and learn the skills you will use and develop throughout your whole scuba diver life. Once certified as an Open Water Diver you will be a confident and independent diver able to dive safely to a maximum depth of 18m.
On the first day you will be given a 4 hours theory session with the assistance of your PADI instructor. After that on the same day you will learn all required scuba diving skills during a pool session which duration depends on the diver own pace, generally 4 hours. It is a step by step process that gives you time to adapt, when you have acquired a skill we go on to the next one, learning scuba skills is a lot of fun and you will never forget your first time! Between the theory and the pool sessions you will have time to rest and have a lunch, you will also be given the opportunity to have a break whenever needed during both sessions.
On the 2nd and on the 3rd day we’ll go open water for your first dives! 2 dives per day, 4 dives in total. The day will begin at the dive center, there your instructor will be waiting for you, we’ll transfer to the chosen dive destination. Before arriving on site your instructor will give you a briefing about the dives and the sites. The first part of each dives is dedicated to skills practice that you have already mastered during the pool session, after demonstrated a satisfactory level we will go for the second part of the dives, underwater exploration! Between each dives we will have a surface interval, and you’ll be given time to rest a little and share with others your fantastic underwater experience.
At the end of the second dive, we will make our way back to the dive center for a well deserved lunch and your instructor will hand you over your Open Water Diver certification!
