Scuba Diving in Curacao

Dive Experience



During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you’ll gain a solid knowledge for the basic principles of scuba diving. You will learn basic scuba skills, how to use basic scuba gear, including a dive computer and other dive accessories, and how to dive with a dive buddy. Within 4 days you will be trained in theory and practical experience how to be a responsible open water diver.

During the course, you’ll make 8 dives at local dive sites with your dive instructor. You will start the first two days by watching videos and preparing by reading the PADI Open Water book prior to the first lessons on your own. Next, you will discuss what you’ve learned with your dive instructor, who will also go over special aspects and circumstances. Then you will do some practical diving exercises in the water. After each training session, you will make a real dive, so you can enjoy the beauty of the reef, the colorful fish and the nice feeling of floating around. In the afternoon there’s another theory lesson, followed by more practical exercises and the second dive of the day.

The final two days are all about diving. The theoretical part, and the theory exam, have been completed and it is now time to improve your skills and practice actual diving. On the last day, we’ll pack up the dive gear and head to one of our off-site dive spots for the final 2 dives. At the successful completion of the theory exam and these two dives, you will become a certified PADI Open Water Diver, which means that you can go diving without a dive instructor, but always with a buddy. The PADI Open Water Diver certification is recognized worldwide.
