What does the PADI Openwater Course Cover?
The PADI Openwater Course consists of knowledge development, dive skill development and open water dives.
The knowledge development is covered through self study, audio visual presentations and quizzes.
Skill development takes place in a pool or confined body of water and the final phase of your course is completed over 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.
