Open Water Courses

Become a Certified Diver

Already decided you love diving? Then it’s time to get certified! Open Water courses require a minimum of three days’ work both in the classroom and in the water. Our instructors teach you dive skills and theory using PADI materials, and then you can practice what you’ve learned in Half Moon Bay during your confined water skills training. After that, it’s time to get out into deeper waters for your four open water training dives. This course will open your eyes to a whole new world underwater and provide you with the skills you need to be a safe, smart, and prepared scuba diver anywhere in the world.
