Open water PADI courses consist of three main components. The first being knowledge based development to understand basic diving principles, then it's off to the purpose built training pool for some hands on lessons. After this, it's off for some proper ocean dives to perfect all that you've learnt.
This 3 day PADI Open Water course includes in house theory lessons, 2 or 3 pool sessions and 4 shore ocean dives off beautiful Magnetic Island. All courses have limited numbers to allow maximum attention from your instructor.
Day 1 is spent meeting your fellow students, going through the paperwork and theory in your classroom. You'll get familiar with your scuba gear during your first pool session. Day 2 will see you jump in the purpose built pool, learn all the skills and increase your confidence before going to Alma Bay for your first two ocean dives. Day 3 you will be feeling excited to complete your remaining 2 ocean dives and finish off with the final exam followed by getting certified as an Open Water diver.
