During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

    The Scuba Gear You Use In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear varies somewhat, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropicaltemperate or cold water The price of the course includes the cost of BCD, Regulator, Wetsuit, and Tank rental. The following items need to be purchased before the Confined Water Dives: mask, snorkel, fins, booties, and weights. (Participants will receive 10% off these items.)


    The Learning Materials You Need

    PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course. For all of the above course program options that require materials, you'll need the PADI Open Water Diver Crew-Pak with a logbook, and a DVD must also be viewed.

    PADI’s 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 (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor. Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned.
