Open Water Diving Course
Your first step into the world of recreational diving!
Whether you want to dive with us in the beautiful Bay of Islands, or in any of the world's other amazing dive locations, your PADI Open Water certification is the ticket you need.
Our scuba diving course will run over 3 or 4 days. We are very flexible and can normally tailor a course to fit your time constraints.All the confined water sessions are done in a heated swimming pool, and our open water dives can be anywhere in the bay (weather depending). Upon certification you will be qualified to dive with a buddy to 18 metres/60 feet.
We offer two different options to complete the theory. You work on the theory component with an instructor, or you can complete it online. To start your Open Water theory with us online please use this link: www.padi.com/elearning-scuba-registration/default.aspx?irra=745&CourseType=ow
