~The PADI Open Water Diver course with DEEP SOUTH DIVERS

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.

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.


To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older 

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breath underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives in open water under the direct supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use a variety of basic scuba gear and standard accessories. There is some required basic equipment that you must purchase but DEEP SOUTH DIVERS provide much of the equipment for the pool sessions and ensure fit and comfort throughout the course.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - Traditional training materials (book and DVD package) or PADI's enhanced Elearning that can be conducted at your leisure on your personal computing device.

Contact DEEP SOUTH DIVERS to personalise the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.
