The Open Water Diver PADI course consists of three areas:

  • Theory or knowledge development. This is the least exciting part, but equally necessary. To make it more bearable and adjust it to your needs for time, travel, etc. We can facilitate the theory before you arrive to read it on your own (book or digital format on your mobile, tablet or computer) before reviewing and explaining with your instructor.
    • We offer PADI eLearning (online courses) at the same price as those that include on-site theory class.
  • Practice in the swimming pool, to practice all the exercises in a controlled environment to aboid any unforeseen. You will learn to feel safe underwater and comfortable with the equipment.
    • We have 4 swimming pools with sea views, perfect for training. They are saltwater to mimic the buoyancy conditions of the ocean.
  • Sea practice and dives. Once you feel comfortable in the water (that’s why previous practice in the pool and not going to the sea directly is so necessary) we will review the exercises in the ocean, in addition to starting with the fun dives (a normal dive as a certified diver). Be careful you can fall in love with the underwater world!

The PADI Open Water Diver course lasts between two and four days, depending on your availability and your choice about doing the knowledge development in person or online.

If you have little time, you can take the PADI Scuba Diver Course, from 1 day and a half, you will be certified to go down to 12 meters accompanied by a professional.

If you have special needs, do not worry, you can continue doing the Open Water diving course in Playa Blanca. Contact us and we will inform you.
