PADI Open Water Diver
A PADI Open Water Certificate is your invitation to the most exhilarating spectacles Mother Nature has to offer
Whether you are interested in the explosive kaleidoscope of colours within a beautiful coral reef or the rusting metal of a wrecked military cruiser, the PADI Open Water Diver Course is the world’s favourite way to get there.
Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be weightless? Do you want to find out what your mates have been banging on about all this time?
Our Professional and friendly Instructors and Divemasters will make sure that your journey to becoming a qualified diver is the fun and stress free adventure that it should be.
You will start with your Home Study, by reading all of your tablet based training material at home at your own pace, you will learn about many different aspects of diving theory, equipment, safety, skills, and what to expect during your course.
You will then come to us armed with most of the background knowledge you need to complete the rest of your course.
We run monthly courses, each course taking place over 2 consecutive weekends. The first weekend is spent with us at our dive centre in Lancing, we split each day to be a mix of classroom and pool training, there will be a water stamina test on the first day comprising of a 200m swim and 10 minute float/water-tread.
The second weekend is when you will be completing your qualifying Open Water dives at a suitable open water dive site.
Because we have our own pool on site we have the capability to also run courses at other times, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss this option with us. We can offer this course on a one-to-one basis, please enquire for course pricing.
Please note that you will need your own mask and snorkel for the course, we believe having your own comfortable mask is very important throughout your training, we can advise and help with this with the large range we have in our shop, however if you already have Diving Quality equipment, you can use that, note that diving quality means tempered glass lenses, not plastic lens snorkelling masks.
