Open Water Diver
Now is the time to dive into the Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure in diving, with an agency that sets the standards in the global diving community.

Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You will also earn an Open Water Diver certification that is recognized worldwide. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.

As a certified Open Water Diver you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. If you already tried a Discover Scuba Diving experience or are Scuba Diver certified, check with your instructor to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water program. Your underwater adventure can begin as soon as today with the new Open Water Diver Crew Pack w/ DVD or eLearning (online)! You can view these materials at home, at your own pace and then meet with an instructor for further assistance. Open water learning options also include group or private instruction. This course offers tremendous flexibility and lets you work out individual needs with your instructor.

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a Open Water Diver certification. At some point in the course, your Instructor will ask you to demonstrate the ability to swim 200 metres/yards without swim aids or 300 metres/yards with mask, fins and snorkel and complete a bit of paperwork, to get you on your way. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a Junior Open Water Diver program available.
