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

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

COVID UPDATE: We are open for business and our courses are running. We are following all government and PADI Scuba training guidelines in regards to social distancing and disinfection of scuba equipment.

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 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 (Not sure when you want to do the course? - Sign up for eLearning Now right here and we will deduct it from your course price later)

  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!

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!
