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 the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.
In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba hard gear (BC, regulator and a tank). The equipment you wear will be chosen by a SCUBAVERSITY Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.
PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD. Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering the learning material in an Elearning environment via the internet or via the Samsung Tablets which can download the Open Water Touch (digital theory of the course).
