PADI Open Water Diver
If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts.
The PADI open water course is made up of 4 sections
Online eLearning – We will issue you with an eLearning key. This will allow you to complete the theory portion of the course online in your own time. – Please ensure the eLearning is completed (and uploaded to PADI) before you attend the pool session
Confined water (pool) sessions – We will spend 2 days in a indoor heated pool learning the skills you need to become an Open water diver.
Open Water 1 & 2 (Shore) session – Our first two open water dives will be done at the stunning Matauri Bay, this site has been chosen for its suitability as a training site that is able to be used in almost all weather conditions.
Open Water 3 & 4 (boat) session – Our last two open water dives will be from our Boat Riku Maru (weather dependant – we have the option to finish off the training at Matauri Bay if we are unable to get out on the boat)
For your practical sessions (Pool, Shore, Boat) we provide all the diving equipment you require. Please ensure you bring the following with you:
Tog’s and Towel
Warm clothes for after diving
Lunch (especially on boat days as there are no shops close by these sites)
Something to drink
Please answer the medical questions honestly for your safety and ours. If all answers are No you are fit to dive, if you answer Yes to any of the questions, you will need sign off by a Doctor.
