                                                                                                     Diver certification begins here.

Your first diving certification is going to be a PADI Open water. As an Open Water Diver, you will be able to dive anywhere you want, with anyone who is a certified diver to a maximum depth of 18 mtr. And become part of a dive community in your area. We offer a wide range of PADI scuba diving lessons and specialty courses for the novice, intermediate or advanced diver all the way to dive Instructor!

What You Learn:
The PADI Open Water course consists of 3 main phases:
  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving.
  • Confined Water Dives (pool training) to learn basic scuba skills.
  • Open Water Dives (something other than a swimming pool) to review your skills and explore!
If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.
