The PADI Open Water Diver Course is an entry-level certification course that teaches you how to scuba dive. This is the most important course you will take as it is the foundation to your diving skills and we want to make sure that you get the best start possible. We teach our students to be capable and confident divers who are able to conduct safe scuba dives independently within their level of certification. Once you are certified as an Open Water Diver, you are able to rent scuba equipment, obtain air and have underwater adventures and as well as visit many of the amazing dives sites on the island of Bonaire.
During your scuba diving course, our instructors will give you time and coaching to become comfortable with each stage of learning as well as each new underwater skill. We teach in small groups to ensure personalized attention. Our professional and experienced instructors will give you a safe, fun and personal experience every step of the way.
The PADI Open Water course consists of 3 main parts:
Knowledge Development – This consists of independent study online or a review of theory in our dedicated air conditioned classroom with your instructor. You will learn and understand the principles and theory of scuba diving as well as the underwater skills required for this course.
Confined Water Dives – These 5 underwater training sessions teach you all the basic skills needed to scuba dive. We have a perfect ocean training site on our doorstep, which enables you to learn to dive in the environment we are intended for: the ocean! It’s a safe and shallow dive site that is perfect to learn in and we have found that the more time students spend in the ocean, the better divers they become at certification.
Open Water Dives – These 4 Open Water dives allow you to demonstrate your understanding and competence of the skills you have learned in your Confined Water Sessions as well as plan and make dives out on the reef.
PRIVATE Training-If you feel you need more time, a different schedule or would like 1 on 1 attention we can easily arrange Private Instruction for you. We believe if you get the best instruction when learning to dive, your diving skills will take you to more amazing and exciting adventures safely and confidently.
PADI ONLINE THEORY– Why not do the theory aspect of the course online before you come on holiday? Get started right away with our PADI E-Learning option. It allows you to study at your own pace through an interactive computer-based program. Then when you arrive at our dive center we can jump straight into the ocean!
Requirements – To enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course, you must be at least 10 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.
