FULL OPEN WATER DIVER CERTIFICATION

Aquarius Scuba Training Calendar
Whether you're seeking an adventure found in exploring a sunken ship, the feeling of almost like being on the moon, taking beautiful pictures of coral reefs, exploring a water wonderland, or just another new weekend activity, then scuba diving is for you! 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. It is the gateway to new adventures underwater and a life changing experience.


The fun part about this course is... well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible! You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During this course, you’ll complete the theory and pool training of basic scuba principles. You will then have up to a year to complete 4 checkout dives out in the open water under the direct supervision of your PADI Instructor. Once that's done, you're issued your Open Water Diver certification and you are a certified diver for life! Over 70% of the earth is covered with water. It's a diver's world out there. This is an adventure you will never forget!


Course Overview

1. Knowledge Development (eLearning, Open Water Diver Touch, or in a classroom) to understand the basic principles of scuba diving.

2. Confined Water Training to learn basic scuba skills underwater.

3. Four Open Water Checkout Dives (lake, river, ocean, etc.) to review your skills and explore!

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be 10 years or older. (PADI eLearning requires an extra registration step for students under 13 years due to international internet laws)


Complete your PADI Open Water Diver certification in Toronto in just two weekends!
