PADI Open Water Certification Course - Get your lifetime certification!

Ocean-Legends-PADI-Open-Water.jpg

The PADI Open Water Diver course is one of our most popular courses and it's not hard to understand why!  In as little as three days*, you will have earned a lifetime PADI certification that enables you to dive worldwide.  And what better place to learn than by diving in Hawaii? Tell us the dates you prefer for your class, and we'll do everything we can to accommodate your needs.  

Before your class starts, you must have completed Knowledge Reviews 1-5 in your textbook or online through PADI eLearning.

The PADI eLearning program allows you to start the PADI Open Water Diver course immediately with a user friendly on-line course that covers the knowledge development portion. Participating in this on-line component allows more flexibility when trying to fit scuba certification into a busy schedule and provides another option for those who prefer web based learning.

Classes are scheduled from approximately 8:00AM - 3:30PM each day, although times are dependent on the students' own progression and dive site location.  We do require all Open Water students to have their own mask, fins and snorkel or purchase them with the help of their instructor on the first day of class.  Personal gear is essential for safety, comfort, and ability as a diver.  All students receive a special gear discount and lifetime membership in our Dive Club! *Dependent on student progression and weather conditions

Upon successful course completion, you'll be able to plan and dive independently with a buddy to a maximum depth of 60 feet.
