PADI Scuba Diver / PADI Open Water Diver

If you are looking to complete a diving course and have a certification that allows you to dive anywhere around the world, these are PADI’s most popular entry level courses. The Scuba Diver Course allows you to dive under direct instructor supervision, whereas the Open Water Diver Course allows you to dive independently with a buddy. Both courses consist of knowledge development to understand the basic principles of scuba diving, confined water dives to learn basic scuba skills and open water dives to review your skills and explore.

The Scuba Diver Course consists of five dives spread over three days, and the Open Water Diver Course entails nine dives and takes five days to complete.
