DESCRIPTION

INCLUDING ALL GEAR HIRE, LEARNING MATERIALS AND PADI FEES


Who should take this course?

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you ̶ particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.
PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet.

  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.

  • Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.

To enroll in a PADI Scuba Diver course (or Junior Scuba Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required, but you can try it first through the Discover Scuba® Diving program.


What will you learn?

The PADI Scuba Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (eLearning, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving – just the first three of five sections of the Open Water Diver course.

  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills – just the first three of five dives of the Open Water Diver course

  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore – just two of four dives of the Open Water Diver course.

How can you start learning now?

Get started by registering for Open Water Diver eLearning online. Phone us or stop by our local PADI dive shop to arrange your confined water and open water dives.

What equipment will you use?

You learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperate or cold water. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment you need and may suggest personal equipment to suit your needs.

What course options are available?

  • Standard course includes all course materials, registration fees, in-water sessions and gear rental to complete the course
  • Gold Course includes the same as the Standard course plus your own Mask, Snorkel, Fins and Wet-suit to keep.
  • Platinum course the same as the Gold course plus your own Computer, Regulator Set, BCD and Mesh Bag to keep.
