PADI Open Water Diver course details

The PADI Open Water Diver course is, by far, the world's most popular scuba certification course. Millions of people have started diving as certified PADI Open Water Divers. Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development (facts, principles, concepts) and dive skills (techniques, methods).

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, your PADI Instructor takes you through the basics of learning how to scuba dive up to 18m. You start in a pool or pool-like conditions and progress to the open water getting the background knowledge along the way.
