The PADI Open Water Diver Course requires a minimum of four open water dives where you will explore underwater environments, practice advanced skills and marvel at marine life.

Guided by your PADI-certified instructor, you’ll navigate, ascend, descend and interact with the aquatic ecosystem. The open water dives provide the exhilarating experience of being a certified scuba diver and the chance to apply your skills in authentic conditions.
