Open Water Diver
The PADI Open Water course is the perfect course to take if you’ve always wanted to see the world beneath the waves. It is the most popular and widely recognized scuba course, and here at Buddies, we would love to help you fulfill your dream! In just four days you will be qualified to dive with a buddy to 18 metres independently.
The PADI Open Water Diver course has three main parts:
Knowledge Development (online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!
All hire of basic equipment, instructor, land transport to dive sites and certification card is included in the price. You will need learning materials for the course, which can either be a hard copy or online e-learning, which we can organize for you (this is an additional cost).
To enrol in a PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.
