PADI Open Water Diver Course

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most recognized and trusted diver certification in the world. This means wherever you travel to, your diver certification will be recognized. 

Learning to dive is a combination of learning the basics during theory sessions (either online or with an instructor), practicing skills in confined water and then completing four dives in the sea to a maximum depth of 60ft/18m.

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver certification course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.
