LEARN TO SCUBA The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver course with DIVING ENTERPRISES

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. PADI certifies more Scuba Divers than all other agencies combined.  PADI really is "The Way The World Learns To Dive"

There are three parts to getting certified:

  1. Register for the pool (what you are doing now)
  2. Complete the online eLearning (at home, when you are ready to start)
  3. Do your training dives (locally or anywhere in the world)

 

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online or home study) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in 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.


Prerequisites

To enroll in our PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be at least 12 years old, in reasonable health, and willing to have fun.


The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.  You can do more than one pool dive and more than one Open Water dive each day.  Typically it only takes two weekends to finish the course.  They don'e even have to be consecutive.  With Diving Enterprises you can pick your Open Water Training Dives from any of our scheduled sessions.  Find the date and location that serves you best.


The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear. Use of the dedicated Scuba equipment you need is included in your course fees.  What you wear will be chosen by one of our staff to ensure your comfort throughout the course.


The Learning Materials You Need For Knowledge Development

PADI offers a variety of home study materials for the Open Water Diver course.  Online eLearning, tablet-based learning, and traditional book learning.  Your choice and no extra charge! 

Contact DIVING ENTERPRISES to personalize the best study option for you.

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.

With the PADI online eLearning you'll have access to all your training materials for the rest of your life, from anywhere in the world.  No book to carry with you and keep dry.  Just log-in and review.

The Training Dives

Once done with the Knowledge Development and Pool Sessions you will complete your certification with four Open Water training dives.  Up to three dives can be done in one day so it can be completed in one weekend.  You can also split the training dives over different weekends.  For our students there is no additional instructional charge for these dives.  Just click HERE to see when dives are available.  If you don't see a good time for you, just check back as we add dives often.
