PADI Open Water Diver Course
Learn to Dive on Exotic Malapascua Island in the Philippines!

As a beginner you have several options:

PADI Open Water Diver Course (Full certification)

NemoDuring PADI’s entry level Open Water Diver Course you will gain the necessary knowledge to dive with a buddy, independent of supervision. After you are certified you will be able to go to any scuba shop around the world and rent equipment, get air fills, and dive within the limits of your training. You will learn to plan, conduct, and log open water dives.

Recreational scuba diving is an activity that can be enjoyed by almost everyone. To dive safely, divers need to have basic knowledge and skills. These skills are not difficult, but proper guidance is important. We will be with you through every step of your learning process and before you know it, you will be a certified scuba diver!!!

There are three parts to the Open Water Diver Course:

Knowledge Development

This involves self-study and some classroom work. You will work through the PADI book and video and then we will revise what you have learnt during classroom sessions. Find out how you can do this in advance with PADI's e-learning program.

Learn to diveConfined Water Dives

We will take you to the pool or very shallow water for your first time breathing off scuba! You will learn some basic skills in a safe and comfortable environment.

Open Water Dives

Find out what diving is really about! You will complete four open water dives over two or more days. If available, our underwater videographers will film you on your last dive, so you can keep your memories with you forever!

PADI Scuba Diver (Partial Certification)

Short on time? The PADI Scuba Diver certification is a great choice for you. This is approximately two thirds of the full Open Water course and can be completed in 2-3 days. This is a lifetime certification that enables you to dive to 12 meters under instructor supervision. You can upgrade and complete the Open Water course whenever you like at any PADI dive center around the world. Another option is to complete any part of the course and get a "Referral" to complete all other parts at a later date.

PADI DSDDiscover Scuba Diving / Resort Dive / Intro Dive

If you have a spare two hours and just want to give it a try, why not take PADI’s Discover Scuba Diving experience? After a short theory session we will go over a few basic skills, and our experienced instructors will take you on your first dive! We will be right by your side the whole time to ensure your safety and enjoyment.

This is also the first part of the PADI Open Water Course. So if you enjoy it (and we are sure you will!), you can apply the experience and the cost towards your Open Water certification with us.

Combo Open Water Courses

PADI has recently introduced several options for combining your PADI Open Water course with other PADI courses. Possible options include Digital Underwater Photography, Buoyancy, and Nitrox. Contact us for more information and current special offers.
