PADI Open Water Course


If you have always wanted to learn to scuba dive this is where you begin! Completing this course earns you the PADI Open Water Diver certification which enables you to buy or rent scuba equipment and dive to 60 feet without direct instructor supervision.

This course requires you to provide a mask, snorkel, fins and boots. You may purchase them from Splash Water Sports at a discount if you are enrolled in one of our courses.

This course consists of the following sessions:

  • 3 knowledge development sessions
  • 3 skills development sessions in a pool or pool-like conditions
  • 4 scuba dives in open water

You’ll need to stop in pay for the course you desire, pick up your text book or CD-ROM and get started reading the material. The course is designed to be a home study program to eliminate the need for lengthy lectures and spend more time reviewing and enjoying practical application in the pool.

We have three different options from which to choose to help accommodate fitting the open water course into your busy schedule:
