The PADI Open Water Diver certification is the most widely recognized scuba diving qualification worldwide. As a PADI Open Water Diver you will be certified to dive with a buddy to a maximum depth of 18m/60ft anywhere in the world.

The PADI Open Water Course is the entry level course designed for beginners and is open to anyone from 10 years old and who are able to swim at least 200 meters and float for 10 minutes.

During this course your instructor will help you master the two different areas of the PADI Open Water Diver certification: theory and scuba diving practice sessions in water.

The theory is a knowledge development done with PADI eLearning, online at your pace and from your home before you come to El Nido so you can save more time to have fun on your holidays. Anyway, we will be pleased to offer you our assistance during your self-study (if needed).
