PADI Online Open Water Diver

This is the most popular dive program in the world! And can be your chance to have a lifetime of intense adventures.

As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, you will have the freedom to dive with a buddy without having a Divemaster or Instructor pulling at your fins or banging their tank at you.

What the Course Entails

The Online PADI Open Water Course was recently launched by PADI and enables you to complete the theoretical training and knowledge development sessions online and then take the final exam and complete the confined and open water dives in resort.

This is an exclusive opportunity we run with Inmo Divers in Dahab. The cost of the online section is 120USD and can be completed within on the PADI E-Learning website .

From the beginning to end of the course, you will learn the fundamentals of scuba diving, including areas such as dive equipment and techniques that will give you the confidence and skill to become a responsible diver.

You attain this rating by completing five pool dives and a number of knowledge development sessions with a final exam (which is not rocket science it’s just diving) and by completing four open water dives.

We also offer this course with 2 days diving for £197.

Course Duration: 3 Days

Course Pre-requisites

Almost anyone who is in good health with a reasonable level of fitness and comfortable in the water can attain a PADI Open Water Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 there is the option for you to complete the PADI Junior Open Water Diver program.
