PADI Courses

So as to dive legally with Oceans Divers and our affiliates, you must get your PADI scuba certification. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, then this is your first step to seeing the phenomenal world beneath the waves.

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of individuals to the adventures of the underworld.

To enrol in the PADI Open Diver course you must be at least 10 years old. From the age of 8 a PADI ‘Bubble Maker’ course can be attained. To become a PADI Certified Junior Open Water Scuba Diver, it is required that you are at least 10 years old. This certification requires diving to be made with a certified parent, guardian or PADI Professional at no greater than a depth of 12 metres. Ten to 14 year olds must dive with a certified adult. Junior PADI Certification can be upgraded to a regular Open Water Diver Certification but only at the age of 15.

PADI offers a variety of study materials for the Open Water Diver course. While eLearning may seem a good option and the most convenient option, we advise that you also opt for hardcopy study materials (book and DVD package).

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 the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor. Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned. Learn the information you need before each dive at your own pace through friendly and interactive learning.

    This is a great post. I learnt somnething I didn’t know in the first instance! I didn’t know until now what Scuba’ stands for. Thanks very much for that! The video is great too. You look like you saw some really interesting things. Did you have a special underwater camera to make the film? I love playing with cameras but haven’t managed to make one like this yet.I’ve got a couple of other questions too .How much training did you have to do before you went out on a real, outside dive away from a swimming pool? And what was your favourite thing you discovered underwater?

    When I was on vacation in Aruba in January I took advantage of the week in the warm weather to complete three specialties. I was finally able to complete my wreck diver specialty after trying to do so for many years now. I also completed my underwater digital photography specialty and my Enriched Air Specialty.
