What does the PADI Open Water Course Cover?
The PADI Open Water Course consists of knowledge development, dive skill development and open water dives.
The Knowledge development is covered through self study, with PADI Open Water eLearning.
Skill development We conduct all our scuba dive training in our private, sheltered cove here at Scubadive West.
This confined body of water is the ideal environment to learn skills and build confidence before moving out to deeper water for the four open water dives at our dive centre in the clear, sheltered waters of Little Killary Bay. This phase allows you to gain the experience necessary to dive independently in the open water environment.
