PADI Open Water Diver
Diver certification begins here. Start with PADI’s knowledge reviews at home. Move to our on-site heated pool and practice your new skills. Then experience four open water in Stoney Cove.
During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you’ll learn what you need to know to explore the underwater world using scuba. Most people find it a rewarding challenge.
The PADI Open Water Diver course includes three parts: Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water Dives. Knowledge Development covers the principles, concepts and terms you need to know for dive safety and enjoyment. During the Confined Water Dives, you learn and practise scuba skills in our on-site pool. You’ll enjoy making one or more mini dives, which take you through the same steps you follow when you make open water dives. To complete training you practice, apply and demonstrate what you learn during four Open Water Dives in Stoney Cove.
Earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification shows that you met the course requirements. Dive centres and resorts require proof of certification before they will rent scuba equipment, fill scuba cylinders or book dive excursions. As a PADI Open Water Diver, you’ll be trained to a maximum depth of 18 metres/60 feet, and are qualified to dive in conditions as good as, or better than, those in which you trained. It’s just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures.
