If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.


To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older

Make sure you look at the medical questionaire on the right so as to make sure you have no conditions that might prohibit you from diving. If needed you may be asked to have the questionalre signed off by a doctor.

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by  a AQUANAUTICS DIVE Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD.  Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering the learning material in an eLearning environment via the internet, and the iPad/Touch program that allows you to have the ease to taking with you on your Tablet.

Contact AQUANAUTICS DIVE to choose the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.

For the course to go as scheduled we need to meet minimum enrollment requirments. If the class does not meet the minumums the students may transfer to another schedule or possilby opt for a Private or Semi- Private course.  We try to allow the course to go whenever it is economically viable but we don't expect our instructors to lose money to teach.
