PADI Open Water Diver course
The Open Water Diver certification is the 1st complete PADI certification you can earn. The Open Water Diver course is comprised of 5 academic modules, 5 confined water training sessions and 4 open water dives. This license is the beginning of your passport to adventure on our PADI Scuba Instructor internship.
This course can be conducted in 3 ½ to 4 ½ days and requires no previous diving experience. You’ll start your Open Water diver course by studying independently with the PADI Open Water diver manual. On Day 1, our experienced and fun Instructors will review your assignments and elaborate on any areas necessary. On Day 2, you’ll take your first breaths underwater and enter a new world - you’ll be amazed at why you never took this course earlier! So be warned: diving is addictive. On Day 3, you will complete all of the confined water training (which will have made you proficient with basic dive skills) and we’ll take you onboard one of our dive boats for your first dive in Open Water. If you thought confined water training was amazing, just wait till you see the beauty of our reef systems - it’s a tropical paradise! The final 4th day we'll finish your Open Water training with your last 2 dives on our reefs. Now you’re a PADI Open Water diver, and the adventure is just beginning!
You can complete the academics with PADI's e-Learning course now, though additional costs of $120 per course apply. For more information on how to sign up for this option, please let us know of your interest.
The next course after the Open Water is the 2 day PADI Advanced Open Water course.
