The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives in Aquatic World's on site pool and four open water dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your Aquatic World PADI Instructor.


Get College Credits

You may be able to earn college credit for the PADI Open Water Diver course!

 

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories (usage of required scuba equipment is all included in the Aquatic World Open Water program standard fee, with no additinoal hidden costs).


The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD-ROM.

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in to Aquatic World's on-site heated pool  to practice these skills with your Aquatic World instructor.

Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned. Aquatic World will assist you in making the right decisions on the scuba equipment you'll need to continue your adventures with competitive pricing options, on site service and support and a wealth of diving expertise to help you on your journey. We will also help you find an Aquatic World International Dive Travel destination, or an Aquatic World Domestic Trip or Local Diving excursion to help you to begin your diving adventure experiencing new things, new places, new people and making new friends.

Come get certified with Aquatic World and let your underwater adventure begin!
