Scuba diving is a thrilling adventure that allows you to explore the aquatic world and discover its wonders. To get started with scuba diving, you need to get certified with the PADI Open Water Diver course – the world's most popular and widely recognized scuba course. This course offers an excellent opportunity for anyone, regardless of prior experience, to learn scuba diving and experience the magic of the underwater world.

Theory Part of the Course

The PADI Open Water Diver course is divided into three main phases: Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water Dives. The Knowledge Development phase allows you to learn the basic principles of scuba diving at your own pace, either through independent study or in a classroom. PADI offers online eLearning courses, which means you can complete this phase at home, saving you time and allowing you to study at your convenience.

Practical Part of the Course

The Confined Water Dives phase is where you will learn basic scuba skills in a controlled environment, such as a swimming pool or shallow water. You'll practice skills like breathing underwater, clearing water from your mask, and recovering your regulator. Once you're comfortable with these skills, you'll move on to the Open Water Dives phase.

The Open Water Dives phase is the most exciting part of the course, as it's where you get to explore the underwater world with your new skills. You'll go on four open water dives with your instructor, where you'll apply the skills you learned in the Confined Water Dives phase and discover the beauty of the underwater environment.
