The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three sections: Academics, Confined Water and Open Water Diving. Academics, before we get in the water, you will need to learn basics of scuba diving. There are two parts of academics, first you will receive an Elearning code to finish the online portion, then you will set down with an instructor to review everything you have learned. Confined Water training will take about 4 – 8 hours in the pool, our instructor will go over the dive gear and basic diving skills with you. Open Water (4 dives) This is where our instructor will take you on a boat or shore dive to guide you through all the required skills so you can become a certified diver.
