The PADI Open Water Diver course can be completed over 2-3 days. PADI Open Water Diver certifies you to dive up to a maximum depth of 18 meters.

Course consists of:  Knowledge Development in an outdoor ‘classroom’ to understand the basic principles of scuba diving.

- 5 Confined Water Dives, either in the swimming pool or in pool-like conditions in the sea, to learn the necessary scuba skills needed to dive safely in open water.  You will learn everything from setting up your scuba gear to how to easily get water out of your scuba mask without surfacing. You’ll also practice emergency skills, eg sharing air or replacing your scuba mask.  

- 4 Open Water Dives with your Instructor to review and practice your skills and explore!  After your confined water dives, you continue learning during four open water dives with your PADI Scuba Diving Instructor at various local dive sites around Paphos.  You may make these dives at your own pace over a couple of days.  

Price includes eLearning, transfers, all dive gear, training, confined and open water dives & PADI certification card.

Amazing experience watching sea turtles
Wonderful experience for a couple of hours snorkelling in Cyprus. We were able to watch many sea turtles in the wild which we didn’t expect.
