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 PADI Scuba Diver certified or Referral student
from other dive centers, check with your instructor to see how credit
from these courses may apply to the open water program.
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?
Throughout the course, youll learn
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.
How long does it take?
3 full days, PADI
programs are performance-based. You proceed as you demonstrate
