Learn to dive in 3 days
On certifying as a PADI Open Water Diver you will be able to dive anywhere in the world to a depth of 18m or for junior divers aged 12 to 16 to a maximum depth of 12m.
Our open water course is fun and very rewarding. We keep our classes small so you will receive plenty of individual attention. When you book your course, we will provide you with a PADI eLearning Pass. This will allow you to learn and complete the dive theory online at your own pace before you start the practical pool and open water days.
Day 1 of the course will include an overview of the upcoming practical days and dive theory review. Then the excitement begins when we meet at the pool where you will learn your dive skills and enjoy the sensation of being and breathing underwater.
Day 2 & 3 are your open water days. You will do 4 ocean dives in total. During these you will revise some of the skills you learnt in the pool, learn some new ones and get to explore the Pilbara’s amazing underwater world. Your instructor will decide on the most suitable dive site on the day taking in to consideration factors such as weather and tides. We want you to have the best experience possible.
