What is PADI Open Water?
As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most
widely recognized and respected rating in the world, you have the
freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. If you
already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI
Scuba Diver certified, check with your instructor to see how credit
from these courses may apply to the open water program.
Virtually anyone who is in good health,
reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open
Water Diver certification. You must be older than the age of 14 to
begin the PADI Open Water Diver program. For those of you who are not
above the age of 14 and would like to participate in the PADI Open
Water Diver Program, then the PADI Jr Open Water Diver program is
available to you. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child
between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.
A PADI Jr Open Water Diver between the ages of 10
and 11 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified
parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet.
What can I do?

fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and
techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and
knowledge development sessions and by making four open water dives.
