OPEN WATER - BEGINNER COURSE The world's most popular scuba diving course

The Open Water Diver course with AQUATIC ADVENTURES

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts.

The  Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.  

What You Learn

The Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Training (pool work) to learn basic scuba skills,

 

To enroll in the Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older 
  • Have adequate swimming skills 
  • Be in reasonably good health


The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver.

To finish the PADI Open Water Course you must complete Phase 3 the Open Water Dives, which consist of four dives at Gilboa Quarry or at a local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a buoyancy control device, tank, regulators, and gauges. The equipment you wear will be chosen by a AQUATIC ADVENTURES Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.

Personal Dive Gear You Will Need

You are required to have your own scuba quality mask, fins, boots, snorkel and exposure suit as these are personal fitting items. Aquatic Adventures staff is here to help you in selecting the proper fitting equipment for your diving needs.  Your comfort is one of our main priorities, if you find that your gear selection is inadequate for your diving needs, we will happily exchange it for something else in our scuba selection. In the unlikely event you don’t complete the course, we’ll buy them back. We are that sure that you’ll enjoy our course

Contact AQUATIC ADVENTURES to personalise the best study option for you!

Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool to practice these skills with your instructor.

Our Course

Your journey begins with reserving your place in a class. To minimize classroom time and focus on getting in the water, much of the academic material is covered through independent study with the Open Water Diver course materials which you receive when you sign up for the class.

At Aquatic Adventures of MI, we like to keep our class sizes small. At some dive shops twelve people in a class might be the average, however that's considered large at Aquatic Adventures of MI . We try to average six to eight students per class.  Smaller class sizes allows for a better Instructor to student ratio allowing for a greater understanding of the Open Water materials!
