What's Included?

  • 3 day PADI Open Water Diver Certification course

The thrill of breathing underwater on your first scuba diving adventure is something you'll always remember! With the help of the diving instructors, you can learn to dive safely in a fun and relaxed environment. This 3 day course will bring you all of the excitement, knowledge and experience you need to become a PADI open water diver which will teach you to dive safely from the shore, off structures and off boats.

After studying the eLearning theory in your own time, your course begins with a short introduction followed by 5 modular swimming pool skill circuits to train you to use your equipment, signals and skills safely. This confined water session is conducted by a highly qualified PADI dive instructor. The next day, you will be scuba diving and 2 shore based dives will see you refining your skills and exploring the underwater world for the very first time. The feeling of being amongst the aquatic world is exhilarating!

On the final day, you will be taken to Rottnest Island on board a dive vessel for two awesome dives at the Island playground. During these dives, you’ll swim around some of the most amazing limestone and coral structures in the Southern Hemisphere. See crayfish, stingrays, cuttlefish and hundreds of different species of fish as you glide through your dive in the safe hands of your instructor. During the surface interval between dives you will have a BBQ lunch (supplied) and you will have ample time to relax and sunbathe on the upper deck of the vessel or head out for a snorkel in the pristine waters of one of Rottnest Island’s sheltered bays.

After the final dive you'll return to the dive centre to celebrate as you're welcomed to the world of diving as a qualified PADI Open Water Diver. A truly memorable day is rounded off by the presentation of your PADI Open Water Dive Course Certificate.
