You can find below the list of available PADI scuba diving courses for beginners:

  • Diving autonomously: OPEN WATER DIVER

Ages 10 and up: The Open Water Diver course is the most popular scuba diving course in the world! It is your true ‘passport to autonomy’. It offers 5 theory modules, 5 dives in the swimming pool (or confined water dives), and 4 dives in the lake or in the sea (or open water dives). You will learn how to manage the equipment, yourself, assist your diving buddy, and cope with the unexpected.

Upon completion of the course, you will obtain a Junior Open Water Diver certificate if you are of age between 10 and 14, and a certificate of Open Water Diver if you are 15 years old and older. The certificate allows you to autonomously dive anywhere in the world to a depth of 18 meters if you are 12 years old and older, or with a PADI professional to a depth of 12 meters if you are at least 11 years old.

Duration: 6 to 8 half-days depending on your progress and availability.
