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.
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:
- PADI eLearning: learn online at your own convenience and pace (must be completed within 12 months of starting)
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
- Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!
The online learning is called PADI e-Learning and allows you to learn and complete the knowledge development part of the course at your own convenience. After you have completed this section you will arrive in picturesque Tobermory, Ontario ready to meet your instructor and complete the in-water portion of your course. The course in Tobermory will take approximately 3 days.
The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe under water for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. You will have the option to visit some of the famous shipwrecks of the Tobermory area. Upon completion of the course you will be certified to scuba dive independently to a depth of 60' or 20m (with a buddy, of course).
