PADI Open Water Diver

The Open Water Diver course is a full entry-level certification that allows you to plan and conduct your own dives independent of an Instructor or Divemaster. The course can be completed in as little as 3 to 4 days allowing time for pleasure diving, pursuing other interests or simply enjoying the rest of your holiday. The course consists of self study, academic sessions with your Instructor, confined water pool sessions and 4 open water sea dives where you’ll put into practice the skills you’ve learnt whilst exploring the underwater world of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition you have to complete a multiple-choice final exam and a 200-metre swim or 300-metre snorkel swim with mask & fins. On successful completion of the course you’ll be awarded the Open Water Diver certification card which is recognised worldwide.
