OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver course with AQUASUB SCUBA DIVING CENTRE

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.


The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of 3 steps:

  1. PADI eLearning: learn online at your own convenience and pace (must be completed within 12 months of starting)
  2. Pool dives: join AquaSub instructors and other divers-in-training for hands-on learning in the class and in the pool (2 days)
  3. Open Water Dives – complete 4 check-out dives to earn your PADI Open Water Diver certification (2 days)

Once you complete all 3 steps you will earn the PADI Open Water Diver certification which is internationally recognized and will certify you to dive with a buddy to a maximum depth of 60'/18m.


How it all works:

PADI eLearning
  • You will do this on your own time on a laptop or desktop computer. It will take about 10 hrs to complete. 
  • As you go through the material you will watch videos and complete quizzes.
  • From the time you begin you have up to 12 months to complete the eLearning. After 12 months it will expire and it is 100% non-refundable.
  • You will need to complete the eLearning and print off your eRecord of completion prior to your scheduled pool dives.
Pool dives
  • Completed over 2 days - offered year round every second weekend.
    September - June = Friday 6pm-9:30pm & Saturday 3pm-8pm
    July & August = Saturday & Sunday 2pm-7:30pm
  • Your instructor will familiarize you with your equipment and take you into the pool to learn and master all the foundational skills of scuba.
Open Water Dives
  • You will need to complete 4 open water dives with a PADI instructor within 12 months of completing your pool dives.
  • These 4 dives can be completed over 2 days.
  • You can do these locally with us between June and September or on one of our group scuba vacations or we can provide you with a referral to complete them on your next vacation.

  • Medical statement - Fill out this form answering "yes" or "no" to each of the questions. If any of these conditions apply to you the second page must be filled out by your doctor.
  • Age requirement: 10 years or older (10-14 yrs will receive a Jr Open Water Diver certification)
  • A reasonable comfort level in the water and basic swimming ability is required.
  • The eLearning is 100% non refundable once you begin and expires after 12 months.
  • The course is performance based. So if you require additional time with an instructor in the pool to make up for sessions missed or to master the necessary skills there will be additional fees.
