Treat yourself with the most recognised scuba diving course in the world: the PADI / SSI Open Water Diver.
This certification has been established by the Scuba Schools International (SSI), as well as by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), the globally most recognised international structure for recreational diving.
The Open Water Diver is a complete qualifying course that will allow you to learn scuba diving with fun! This attractive program gives you the keys to comfort and ease in a subaquatic environment.
WHO IS THE PADI / SSI OPEN WATER FOR?
The OWD is for anybody willing to start scuba diving through a complete tailored academic but attractive course that will give them the opportunity to practice their new skills safely and at ease at depths down to 18m anywhere around the world!
PADI / SSI open water diver certification allows you to dive to depths down to 18m with a dive partner of equivalent or superior level and down to 20m with a dive leader or dive master.
The PADI / SSI open water diver teaches all the necessary keys to be mastered in order to quickly acquire long term scuba diving skills. You’ll learn to gear up, dive in twos, plan your dive and anticipate/solve potential problems. Under your instructor’s supervision, you learn how to check your dive partner’s gear in 5 steps, to observe and then practice the removal and repositioning of your regulator, empty your mask, and manage your buoyancy thanks to your buoyancy compensator. As you learn along, you will progressively dive down to 10, then 15m. By the end of your course, gearing up, back rolls and giant-strides or helping a teammate who’s run out of air will all have become natural behaviours.
In order to get adapted to your learning pace, we propose the PADI/SSI eLearning course. It will help you enhance the knowledge content of your certification course thanks to various digital products that you’ll go through in self-tuition. Each module contains a multiple choice test to help you validate your knowledge. Your instructor is always nearby and keen on answering all your questions.
No previous experience is required for the PADI/SSI open water diver or the junior open water diver, as long as you can swim. Just turn up at the DUNE Estérel centre with your swimsuit and a towel!
