What do I need to start the PADI Open Water Course?

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification and enroll in our PADI Open Water Diver course. You must be older than the age of 15 (Divers under 15 and would like to participate in the PADI Open Water Diver course, then the PADI Jr Open Water Diver course is available to you).  Divers will also want to take this opportunity to start building a personal gear setup by providing their own Mask and Snorkel, we provide all other rentals.

Once certified you can dive to 60′ /18m anywhere in the world, and this is a lifetime certification!

Note: Divers will need to fill up the medical questionnaire. (The PADI Medical form will need to be signed by a physician if participants have any “YES” answers in the medical questionnaire.)
