So now you're in. And you want to stay in, not to hold any instructor hand, keep going by yourself...discovering the underwater world...


As a PADI Open Water Diver, you'll be able to dive as deep as 18 meters in any ocean of this world, just by showing your certification card

Once certified, you won't be the best diver in the world, but you'll know all the keys you need to become a very good diver.

You 'll be able to dive in most of this world dive sites.


It's a 4 to 5 days session. Everybody can become a Open Water Diver, just have to be 12 years old at least.

Three steps :

1- First skills in confined water : 5 sequences in the lagoon (depth between 3 and 5 meters) practicing skills you need as a diver.

2- Knowledge development : it will give you all the keys to understand scuba diving and dive safely. You'll study five sections, by yourself, with the help of a "GO DIVE" manual and the Open Water Diver Video.

The acquisition of the knowledge is validated by a quick quizz and a knowledge review.

3- Open water dives : You'll make 4 open water dives and discover marvels of our big coral reef. These dives last 35 to 45 mn. The first two won't go under 12 meters. The next two will take you to 18 meters. During the open water dives, we'll take 15 mn practicing skills.
