There is nothing quite like the experience of another world. Only a very few have left our planet but millions have experienced the other 71% of our world. If you feel the tug of the aquatic realm, you’ve come to the right place. Tens of thousands of underwater explorers started right here.
Scuba lessons unlock the door to new adventures and amazing animal encounters. By the end of your
scuba certification course, you’ll see our ocean planet through new eyes. We have long been affiliated with PADI (the Professional Association of Diving Instructors). It is the most recognized dive training organization in the world (28 million certifications and counting).
A scuba diving certification, also known as an Open Water Diver certification, allows you to dive anywhere in the world. Similar to driving a car, scuba diving requires specific knowledge, skills and training. A PADI Open Water Diver certification allows you to seek adventure anywhere where there’s water. During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you'll learn what you need to know to explore the underwater world using scuba. Most people find it a rewarding challenge.
The PADI Open Water Diver course includes three parts: Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water Dives. Knowledge Development covers the principles, concepts and terms you need to know for dive safety and enjoyment. During the Confined Water Dives, you learn and practice scuba skills in a pool or water with pool-like conditions. You'll enjoy making one or more minidives, which take you through the same steps you follow when you make open water dives. To complete training you practice, apply and demonstrate what you learn during four Open Water Dives at a local dive site.
Earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification shows that you met the course requirements. Dive centers and resorts require proof of certification before they will rent scuba equipment, fill scuba cylinders or book dive excursions. As a PADI Open Water Diver, you'll be trained to a maximum depth of 18 metres/60 feet, and are qualified to dive in conditions as good as, or better than, those in which you trained. It's just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures.
If you just want to try scuba diving, we also offer a short experience called Discover SCUBA Diving in a pool or pool-like environment, with an optional open water dive. It’s a quick and easy way to find out if you like scuba diving, but it’s not a certification course.
All of our SCUBA education activities are taught by a trained professional. Our PADI Instructors are well experienced divers before they even undergo the weeks of rigorous training for certification to ensure your scuba class is fun and safe. Choosing an instructor is an important step in taking those first steps to discovery. We invite you to join us. Let your adventure begin!
