PADI Open Water Diver


The PADI Open Water Diver is our most popular certification level. This internationally recognized certification will allow you to dive with another certified diver, worldwide, to depths of up to 18m / 60 feet and is valid for life.

The PADI Open Water Diver Course consists of 3 phases of skill development; Knowledge Development, Confined Water Training and Open Water Training Dives. Upon successful completion of all 3 phases, you will earn the PADI Open Water Diver certification.

You will start by completing your Knowledge Development by watching the PADI Open Water video at the dive center. The video will get you started with everything you need to know to dive safely, the underwater environment, the equipment you will use and the skills you will learn to be a safe and confident diver. The afternoon will then be spent working through your PADI Open Water Diver Manual and completing the Knowledge Reviews.

You will then be ready to start with the in-water training which is completed over 3 days.
The first day in-water day is dedicated to Confined Water Training where you learn and master the skills you need to become a safe and confident diver. This is done in our dive pool, where you will progress step by step. Your Instructor will demonstrate the skills and work with you until you have mastered them and feel truly comfortable underwater.

Over the next 2 days, you will complete 4 Open Water Training Dives with your Instructor. During these dives, you put the skills you have learned into practice, demonstrating your abilities as a safe Open Water Diver and of course exploring the underwater world of the Caribbean Reefs.

Diving in some of the most crystal clear waters of the world, you can expect to see a wide variety of marine life and corals. Angel Fish, Butterfly Fish, Barracudas, Stingrays, Crabs, Turtles and much more are all usual visitors on our local reefs!
With a maximum of 4 students per Instructor in our groups, you can be certain you will receive personal attention and training, enjoying every moment of your journey to becoming a PADI Open Water Diver and joining the scuba family!

Scuba gives us the gift of connecting with the water element inside of us!
