The PADI Open Water Certification Course guides you safely through the basics of learning how to scuba dive. The course is split in to three parts: the on-line theory, practical pool sessions and four open water dives. The theory is achieved through the PADI e-learning program which allows you to login in to your account on-line and complete all the theory in your own time - there is no need to spend valuable time in a classroom whilst on vacation!
Once on the island you will begin to learn the practical skills in the confined water of the swimming pool before progressing to the open water portion of the course. The confined water training takes place at the Holiday Inn Resort where there are beautiful pool side views of the North Sound. The first two "check- out" dives are taught as shallow shore dives on the Wreck of the Cali - a site in front of our dive shop in George Town. This wreck was a 220 foot four mast schooner that sank over 60 years ago and is now home to an abundance of marine life including colorful tropical reef fish and a resident school of huge silver Tarpon.
The following day you will head out on one of our three custom dive boats to complete the final two “check out” dives before being certified as an Open Water Diver. After certification you will be qualified and well prepared to experience even more of the Cayman’s wonderful and diverse underwater world.
This course is available to those students who are a minimum of 10 years old, medically fit to dive and be comfortable in the water.
We offer this course a number of times weekly at your convenience. Certified divers are encouraged to join family or friends enrolled in this course.

Please review the PADI Medical Questionnaire prior to enrolling in any PADI training course. If you answer "YES" to any of the medical issues it does not necessarily disqualify you from Scuba Diving - it just means your pre-existing condition could possibly affect your safety while diving and you must seek your Physician's approval to dive.
