Recreational Courses: Open Water Diver
Get Certified! Take the PADI open water diver course today! 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.
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.
Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned.
