The Fun Part:
The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You first breath underwater for the first time is something you will never forget and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver
The Open Water Diver course is comprised of 5 academic modules, 5 confined water training sessions and 4 open water dives. This certification is the beginning of your passport to adventure on our PADI Divemaster internship.
This course can be conducted in 2 to 4 days and requires no previous diving experience and you’ll start your Open Water diver course by studying independently with the PADI Open Water diver manual, on day 1 our experienced and fun Instructors will review your assignments and elaborate on any areas necessary, on day 2 you’ll take your fist breathes underwater and enter a new world and you’ll be amazed at why you never took this course earlier but be warned diving is addictive. On day 3 you will complete all of your confined water training that will have made you proficient with basic dive skills and we’ll take you onboard one of our dive boats for your first dive in Open Water, if you thought confined water training was amazing, just wait till you see the beauties of our reef systems, it’s a tropical paradise.
