Course Content

You’re breathing under water the first time. Something you will never forget! You learn what it means to be a certified diver. During this course you get used to breathing underwater, in shallow water, and you will absolve four dives at local spots under the supervision of a PADI Dive Instructor.

What you learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!


The Open Water Diver course can be completed in a minimum of 3 days. If you should be short of time we recommend you to participate the PADI OWD eLearning programme previously. Thereby you can reduce the course length by about one day. With this you acquire the theory with PADI learning texts and videos on your Computer or Tablet and can start to dive right away when you arrive. Please plan for four to five days for your Open Water Diver course in any case. We recommend an online reservation with a discount via the booking form on our website.
