PADI Open Water Diver

open water diverDescription

This course is PADI’s primary diving accreditation, which enables divers to dive anywhere in the World to a depth of 18 meters or less (12 meters if under 12) with a buddy of similar or greater qualification and experience, hire and buy equipment and join PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Speciality courses.

Our course consists of four main phases:

  • Knowledge development either in the classroom or through independent study, with five knowledge reviews to complete
  • Confined Water Dives in a local pool to learn basic scuba skills
  • Open Water Dives from a nearby shore

The course takes four days during which dives are mixed with knowledge development to give a varied and exciting experience for all ages.

All equipment and course materials are provided.

Those under 15 years old will be accredited as PADI Junior Open Water Divers and will automatically be upgraded to PADI Open Water Dive when they reach 15 (certification cards are not automatically upgraded).

It’s that time of the year where some of you are not diving due to the cold and conditions - though the hardy few are continuing!
Either way, now is the time to get your kit checked and serviced, either because your not diving at present or because the water is colder and you are putting more strain on your kit.
We can inspect and service most manufacturers equipment - just let us know what you need done and we can give you an idea of cost.
Remember you would not drive your car if not MOTed or faulty so why dive without serviced or checked kit? Your life depends on it.
