Who should take Open Water Diver (OWD)Courses ?

If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course (OWD), the world’s most popular and widely recognized scuba course. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive and gone on to discover the wonders of the aquatic world through this course.

A completed course gives the trainee a license to dive up to 18m. To begin, students are given their manual (ideal beach reading), then get to watch the training DVDs in our air-conditioned classroom. After briefing and fitting of equipment (rental included in course price) it’s over to the shallow home reef for the 5 confined water training sessions, where you are taught underwater skills such as mask clearing, ascent and descent techniques and equipment manoeuvres. Once you are comfortable with these skills we move on to the open water dives. Accompanied by an instructor you will do 4 open water dives, repeating the basic skills and learning essential emergency procedures. Here we have many shallow water wrecks which you may get a chance to dive in your last two dives. This course takes 3-4 days to complete.
