Open Water Scuba Diving

As PADI’s entry level course for new scuba divers, the Open Water scuba diving course is one of our most popular. It involves comprehensive dive theory sessions, skills sessions in the pool, and four dives in open water. Upon completion, new divers will be certified to dive to a maximum of 18 metres and be able to dive at all PADI certified dive centres around the world. If you do not have a PADI qualification, none of these companies will allow you to dive. This qualification serves as your passport to the underwater world!

Price: R4999.00

Scuba For Recreation!

The PADI Open Water course is available for anyone over the age of 10, giving families the opportunity to experience the underwater world together. The course includes several theory sessions, compounded by swimming pool sessions in which you’ll learn all the skills you need to become a safe and confident diver. When you’ve mastered those skills, you’ll demonstrate them in open water on four exciting ocean dives. To qualify, all divers also have to complete a final exam. Typically, the course lasts approximately four days.
