PADI Open Water Course - Taking the plunge
The PADI Open Water certification gives you a qualification that is recognised worldwide. It allows you to dive (with a buddy) to a depth of 18 meters and experience the underwater world anywhere your travels may take you.
Sign up for the Open Water Course and receive a free TUSA mask and snorkel valued at $89.00!!!
There are three stages to your training completed over four days.
You start off with some dive theory in our large, air conditioned classroom. This gives you an insight into what to expect while diving including dive equipment and dive safety.
It's time to get wet! We jump in the swimming pool to get our first taste of breathing underwater. We spend a good part of the day developing the skills we need in a safe and controlled environment before we get in the ocean
Day three and four
What it's all about. Both days start with two dives in the Solitary Islands Marine Park. We practice the skills we learnt in the swimming pool and then it's off to explore this new underwater world. On day four you will be presented with your PADI Open Water Certification..........let the celebrations begin!
We pride ourselves in making sure you have the best experience possible by giving you a personal service to become a competent diver.
Courses start Mondays and Thursdays and can be completed full or part time
