The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

 

What You Learn

 

The course consists of three main phases:

. Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore! (In the sea).

Prerequisites

 

To enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be 10 years or older and be capable of swimming at least 100 metres.

 

The Fun Part

 

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. During the course, run over 3 consecutive weekends, you'll make five pool dives and four dives at a local dive site under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

 

Fees

 

The course fee of SR 1500 includes:

. All course study materials.

. All dive equipment required for the 9 dives you will complete, (with the exception of a wetsuit), including tanks and air.

We do ask that you provide the minimum equipment of a wetsuit at least 3mm thick, which can be bought locally for around SR300. The reason for this being the prohibitive cost of providing infinte sizes. If you need any assistance in the purchase of these please let us know.
