What is the padi open water course?

The PADI open water course is the first step in learning to scuba dive and will allow you to scuba dive down to 18m with a buddy anywhere in the world in condition equal to or better then you learn in. The course itself is made up of 3 parts, the dive theory, the confined water, and the open water dives.
The dive theory is completed online under the guidance of one of our instructors who you will be able to contact anytime with any questions. This gives you the freedom to download and complete anywhere and at times to suit you, so no more stuck in boring classrooms.
The confined water sessions take place at any of your pools where you learn the skills you need to dive safely and how to control yourself underwater with the scuba equipment. Unlike most other schools, we offer unlimited pool time so you can learn at your own pace and can even take a break during the training should work or other needs arise so there is no pressure on you to complete in just a set number of hours.
The open water dives are where you get the chance to scuba dive for real, either in a specialist scuba diving lake or on one of our dive trips, while under the supervision of our PADI dive team.
