In the PADI OPEN WATER DIVER course you will acquire the necessary knowledge to become an autonomous diver. This diving certification allows you to dive to a depth of up to 18 metres anywhere in the world – welcome to the world of scuba diving!

It consists of two parts: one theoretical and one practical. You can do it in just 3 days, although we will adapt to your availability.

The theoretical part consists of a very simple and easy to study content that will provide you with the basic knowledge to be able to do the practical part of the course in complete safety. The theory can be done both online and presential.

The practical part consists of 5 dives:

  • The first dives take place in the pool (or in the sea if conditions permit). These are the first practices of the course where we will learn the different basic exercises that are necessary to ensure our total safety before going out to sea
  • 4 dives in the sea: dives 1 and 2 are done at a depth of between 6 and 12 metres in order to adapt to the environment and enjoy the surroundings. Dives 3 and 4 take place at a depth of between 12 and 18 metres where we will test the skills and abilities we have learnt during the course
