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).

Been a busy few days at Viewpoint, with dive against debris dives, project aware course, and a digital photograph level 1 to 2 upgrade course, well done to Blaise for doing them all, keep collecting the rubbish from the sea.
At viewpoint diving we are a 100% project aware centre and have adopted Portmellon as our dive against debris main site, so are always collecting the odd bit of rubbish on every dive, and donate £10 to project aware for every certification we put through to Padi.
We have noticed due to divers collecting the rubbish from the sea and 3 bays and Sas beach cleans along with more people recycling and using the rubbish bins, Portmellon is a lot cleaner than it was under the water keep up all the good work everybody.

Another great club dive today with 12 divers in the water, one team off to the left the Panda group (club members will understand) and one to the right, visibility still low between 2-4 meters but water nice and warm.
See you all next week.

Open water course running Tuesday to Friday inclusive, still some spaces available, and spaces on the following weeks open water course too.

If you want a DSD (Discover Scuba Diving day ) pool and sea these are on Mondays throughout August.

Nice little 54 min dive on southern reef at Portmellon, visibility well down due to SE winds and bit choppy getting in, but all in all a great dive.
Club dive tomorrow visibility should be better and sea flatter due to wind changing to Sw. See you all tomorrow.
