The PADI Open Water Diver Course is a five-week class that consist of both academic and practical skills. Once a week you will be required to attend a four-hour course that will be split up between classroom work and confined water exercises. You will meet us at our dive shop for approximately 2 hours of classroom work and then follow us to a local pool for two hours of practical training in the water.

Once you have completed your training, you will attend one of our Dutch Springs certification weekends where over the course of two days you will be tested on the skills that you learned in the classroom and in the pool. Once you have completed these “check out dives” you will officially be a PADI Open Water SCUBA Diver. After you complete this entry-level course, you are welcome to return and take advanced courses that will allow you further discovery and adventure in the underwater world.
