PADI Open Water Dive

PADI Open Water Diver is the first scuba certification level. A highly-trained PADI Instructor will teach you how to scuba dive in a relaxed, supportive learning environment.

This certification takes place over the course of 3-days with a maximum of 4-students to 1 instructor ratio. The first day consists of practice using scuba gear in a pool (or pool-like environment) until you’re comfortable. PADI training includes practice “mini dives” to help you build confidence in your new abilities before making four dives in open water over the next two days
