OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver Course....with..... DIVE SOURCE

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts... With Dive Source and the PADI Open Water Diver course,  which is the world's most popular scuba course!

Learning to Scuba Dive with us is as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Sign up for a course here at Dive Source -  You then complete the dive theory portion online, at your own pace, using interactive PADI eLearning. (This takes 10-12 hours to complete and must be done before the course start date)

  2. Arrive for your Course  - Which runs 4-5 sessions in a combination of classroom and pool... 

  3. Go diving on your Open Water Certification Dives... To finish your PADI Open Water Diver Certification you need to complete four certification dives in open water (Lake, River Ocean...), which are more of a reward than a test, as you are actually going scuba diving!

    We do not charge you for the open water dives, during our winter courses as they are done in the spring at a date you pick or you may also do them while away on holiday (called taking a referral.)

Congratulations... At this point, you will be certified as a PADI OPEN WATER DIVER and your certification is good anywhere in the world for the rest of your life!

 

GROUP LESSON COURSE PRICE of $499 INCLUDES:  Padi eLearning ($200) + Classroom & Pool training with scuba gear rental ($199) + PADI eLearning crewpack ($100) - (Semi private courses are $99 more)

  • Not included in price is the Open water fee: Open water for our students is only $125 and includes all rental gear, airfills, Certification Card and instruction/supervision while doing your four certification dives, which take place over a single " Open water weekend". (2020 dates for these are May 23/24 or May 30/31 or June  6/7)

 

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course, you must be 12 years or older, in good overall health, able to swim comfortably and a desire to have fun. 

The Scuba Gear You Use

Dive Source provides top quality scuba equipment for you to use during the course and the only thing we recommend you have of your own, is some good snorkelling gear and we offer 20% off to our students. If you are on a budget, purchase your own mask and snorkel and we will provide rental fins at no charge. ( Be aware that big box store basic snorkeling sets are usually not suitable for diving)

Your Next Adventure

After completing the Open Water Diver Course, you can come diving with our Dive club called the Dive Zone as you get a free membership and can meet new dive friends and join us on local dives as well as trips!

You can also expand your knowledge by taking additional training like the next level of certification called the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, which expands on what you learned as an Open Water Diver, and it allows you to dive deeper and begin to learn other specialties. 

For more information about this or other PADI courses have a chat with one of the DIVE SOURCE Team members.

We hope this gives you a good overview of what is involved in our program. Our courses do fill quickly, so please come into the store to book your space or  you may also enroll by purchasing the course here online. However you must still come in to the store within 2 days to complete paperwork etc.)

 *For those of you who might have heard of other training agencies like NAUI, TDI, SDI, SSI, ACUC, NASDS, PDIC, BSAC, GUE etc. We are very familiar with them as well and several of our instructors are also certified with them as well. However, we primarily offer PADI courses to our clients as they have the best and most recognized training system in the world.
