PADI Open Water Course Schedule

The schedule for your course is quite flexible, and will depend on your comfort level and progress. It will involve mixing up three aspects of your learning – theory, pool sessions and Open Water Dives. We want you to have fun when you learn to scuba dive with us!

  • Theory

    This consists of watching the PADI Open Water Diver video’s, completing some knowledge reviews, taking some quizzes and passing a final exam.

  • Pool sessions

    There are 5 pool sessions that will ease you into the fundamentals of diving, from your first breaths under water until planning and diving your own mini dive. You will learn essential scuba skills that will prepare you adequately for your open water dives.

  • open water dives

    There are 4 Open Water Dives, at the beginning of each one you will redo some of the scuba skills that you learnt in the pool. After the skills its just fun-diving on the dive site to practice your diving skills and enjoy the beauty of the dive site.

    We try and make the schedule very flexible with your first 3 days being spent with a mixture of Theory, Pool Sessions and  2 Open Water Dives. This ensures that the course progresses according to your ability & comfort level, and we are happy to redo pool sessions if needed.

    We try and leave the last day of the course for your last 2 Open Water Dives, this means that after your dives you will be certified and qualified to scuba dive all over the world!
