PADI Open Water Classes

PADI Open Water Classes

The Open Water Scuba Diving Course is a full certification course allowing you to scuba dive independently of an instructor or divemaster. As a certified diver you will experience amazing dive destinations, marine life, new friends, new adventures, and lots of fun. There are three parts to the certification process, Knowledge Development, Confined Water and Open Water.

Knowledge Development: You learn the theory required to be confident in the water. The PADI Scuba Diver Education System contains everything you need to complete the Open Water Scuba Diver Course.

Confined Water Dives: You develop the basic skills that all divers need in a low stress environment. It reinforces the Knowledge Development training by having student divers practice and apply what they learn from reading the manual. There are 2 or 3 sessions in a pool. Each session is about 3 to 4 hours

Open Water Dives: This completes your certification. You put your new skills into practice and experience the underwater world. The skills that you learned in confined water are repeated giving you the experience needed to dive safely. These dives are held at Dutch Springs. There will be 4 dives completed over 2 days, 4 to 6 hours each day. During this time you will take an exam demonstrating your understanding of scuba diving concepts.
