OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver course with JUSTIN'S SCUBA TIME

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.


What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to demonstrate your skills and explore!


Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older (PADI eLearning requires a minimum age of 13 years due to international internet laws).
  • Be in good physical health

 

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. Four open water dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

 

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. The equipment you wear will be chosen by a JUSTIN'S SCUBA TIME Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.

*** Please note that we provide all equipment other than your own personal mask, snorkle, wetsuit boots, and fins.

 

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI's Open Water Diver manual covers 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 to practice these skills with your instructor.

 

How Much Will It Cost?

This is often one of the most frequently asked questions and the problem with this question is that there is unfortunately no answer that will be 100% accurate. The best that we can do is provide you with a breakdown of the costs that we know and provide you with a realistic estimate of the total cost.

The tuition for the course will cost $255. The PADI certification card will cost $45. The learning materials for the course will cost $99. And the equipment rental for the course will cost $85. Students will be required to have their own mask, snorkel and fins. For this reason, a general estimation of the cost for the course is approximately $800 per student.
