Welcome to A Diver's World

Open Water Diver

If you’ve always wondered what lies beneath the surface, now’s the time to find out. Start the journey of a lifetime with the PADI Open Water Diver course.  It will change you forever.  Come along, let's have some fun!

Certification happens in three easy steps:

In our PADI Open Water Diver course, your Instructor takes you through the basics of learning how to scuba dive. You start in a pool and progress to the open water, getting the background knowledge along the way.

In the classroom, you'll learn some basics about how the body works underwater - essentially you're taught the effects of pressure on the body. In the pool, you'll put that knowledge to practical applications, learning how to clear your mask, how to equalize pressure in your ears, how to ascend and descend safely, how to control your buoyancy. Next are your training dives, where your instructor will once again be right by your side making sure you are comfortable. Here you will demonstrate the same basic skills you've been practicing in the pool. And there you'll be, swimming and breathing like a fish, suspended in a dazzling new world. Prepare for amazement.  To get started, call or stop by our dive center any time. A Diver's World instructors are friendly, patient, highly qualified, experienced, and at your side throughout all your learning. You will enjoy the fun, safety, and expertise A Diver's World provides you throughout your SCUBA training.
