During the PADI Open Water Dive course you will gain in-depth knowledge of the basics of diving. You will learn the basic diving skills, how to use the basic diving equipment including a dive computer and other diving accessories and how to dive with a dive buddy. In 3 days you will be trained in theory and practical experience to be a responsible open water diver.
You start the course with dive theory. You can go through this completely before the start of the practice because the interactive PADI e-learning is used. When you start with the practice at the diving school, you only have to dive. In three days you do 5 skill sessions in which you learn to recognize and solve problems. You do this in the bay of Jan Thiel in front of the diving school. This way you get used to the movement of the sea and the salt water. After the skill sessions you are well equipped to enjoy the underwater world in a relaxed way. During the four open water dives you apply the skills you have learned in the open sea. The first two open water dives are on the house reef in front of the diving school and go to a depth of max. 12 meters. The last two open water dives are at two other beautiful dive spots on the island.
After completing the theory, skill sessions and four open water dives, you are a certified PADI Open Water Diver, which means you can dive without an instructor, but always with a buddy. The PADI Open Water Diver certification is recognized worldwide.
When booking, choose the date when you want to start the practice at the diving school. After reservation you will receive access to the e-learning environment from the diving school to learn the theory in advance. Make sure you make time for this during your vacation!
The diving school will contact you after booking to definitively plan the diving course
The e-learning theory course for € 100 cannot be cancelled. You will not receive these costs back if you decide not to take the booked course for whatever reason.
You need to fill out a medical questionnaire. Only if you can answer all questions with no you can participate.
