OPEN WATER COURSE

LEARN TO DIVE, TO DIVE THE WORLD. Seriously, your PADI Open Water diver licence is your ticket to explore the seas and oceans of the entire world. If you've always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course – the world's most popular and widely recognised scuba certification.

To enrol in a PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience of scuba diving is required.

The course itself is actually split into just THREE basic phases:
  • Knowledge Development (Theory) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!

Dive theory options

Option 1 - Standard
Includes a manual which must be read before the course starts. Exams completed with us.


Option 2 - E-Learning & Touch
Complete your exams online and save holiday time for the fun part.

Confined water

Day 1 of your course is spent at our pool learning all the basic principles of scuba diving. Your instructor will take you through the equipment and how to set it up. We teach you how to communicate underwater and then help you take your first breaths - only this time in confined water. You will build up confidence and ability as we develop your skills through exercise practice at your own pace.

Open Water

Over 2 more days you will take to the Mediterranean Sea to further develop your skills in Open Water. During the course you will always enter via the shore, gradually progressing deeper in a very controlled manner. There will be some more skills practice in Open Water but you can look forward to your last dive which has no instruction...just diving...like a qualified diver!

And if you don't have time...

Dive Academy also offers the chance to complete the PADI 'Scuba Diver' course which is pretty much half the Open Water course. You complete only 3 chapters of theory with no final exam. This includes half a day of confined water practice and 2 open water dives. The licence allows you to dive to a maximum of 12 metres but you must ALWAYS dive with a professional. It is however, an international licence the same as the Open Water course.
