The PADI Open Water Diver course is your starting point for a life-long exploration of the underwater world. With 70% of our world consisting of water, there is a lot to discover! This entry level course will teach you the basic scuba diving techniques in a safe and controlled environment.
To start your underwater adventures, all you have to do is learn about the basic rules and guidelines of scuba diving during your (online) theory session, jump into the pool and finish off with four dives in open water. Together with your instructor you will become familiar with the scuba gear and after completing the five pool session where you will learn to master the skills, you will be ready to make your way to the ocean.
Cape Town is an amazing place to start off your scuba diving experience, with a wide range of shore dives that will guide you through unique kelp forests, past mysterious wrecks and when lucky you get a visit from one of our Cape Fur Seals. After completing your four ocean dives you will have developed yourself in a confident, prudent diver ready to explore our majestic oceans.
Have you always wanted to experience how it is to breath underwater and emerge yourself in a new world filled with the most amazing marine life? Than this is your ticket to become a certified diver! The PADI Open Water Diver course will teach you the basic knowledge and skills of scuba diving after which you will be able to start your underwater adventures with confidence.
Knowledge development can be done online, by self-study or in a classroom-setting.

Toward the end of the course you will write a quiz and an exam to test your gained knowledge of scuba diving.
For skill development we will make our way to the pool. Together with your instructor you will get familiar with your scuba gear and take your first breaths underwater. During five session in the pool you will learn to master the basic skills of scuba diving after which you are ready for your first open water dives.
You are now prepared to take diving into the ocean. In total we will do four open water dives which will cover a variety of skills which you already learned in the pool.

What Diver’s Say
My boyfriend was a diver already and encouraged me to do my scuba course too. It was so much fun doing this with Monique as my instructor, she really took her time to make sure I was completely conformable in the ocean. Absolute love scuba now!
My wife and I did the Open Water course before our trip overseas and it was such a great experience. With Monique as my instructor I always felt safe and taken care of. Diving in Cape Town and Oman might not have the same water temperature, but the scuba diving is equally amazing!
