PADI Open Water Diver Course

PADI scuba Puerto GaleraThe Open Water Diver course is the most popular of all diving courses and is recognized all over the world. This is your admission ticket to intense and unforgettable scuba diving experiences for the rest of your life!

The scuba course concentrates on the fundamental aspects of diving, such as diving equipment and diving technique. During the  course you will dive four times in open water and complete five parts of theoretical instruction. The course lasts from three to four days. When you have passed the scuba course you are a “Certified Open Water Diver“. This allows you to dive together with a friend. He or she must also have passed the scuba dive course, but you do not need to be accompanied by a professional diver. We do however recommend that you have at least 30-50 logged dives under your belt before you consider diving without a certified dive master. And then only in areas you are intimately familiar with.

Almost anyone who is more than 10 years of age, is in good health and physical shape and feel comfortable in the water, can pass the Open Water Course.
