PADI Open Water Course in Bali… 

2 or 3 Days, Theory, Pool Session & 4 Dives.

Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course and dive Bali, the most popular scuba diving course in the world! This is your PADI diving ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure, the training association that sets the standards in the global scuba diving community.

You will earn the PADI Open Water Diver qualification that is recognised worldwide. You earn this diving license by completing online eLearning theory before arriving in Bali, skills sessions in the pool and by making 4 open water dives.

Throughout this PADI Open Water Diver certification course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of scuba diving, including equipment and techniques. Virtually anyone who’s in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn the Open Water Diver qualification. At some point during your course, your PADI Instructor will ask you to demonstrate the ability to swim 200 metres.

The PADI Open Water Diving certification is a permanent scuba qualification, and as a certified diver you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. However, if you do not dive for over 12 months and you are a relatively an inexperienced diver, then we recommend you complete a Refresher Session. This can take as little as 1 hour of your time in the dive pool and gives you the chance to refresh those skills you may have forgotten. That way, when you do dive again you can relax and enjoy your dives, and be sure that you won’t have any nasty surprises in store.

If you already tried a Introduction Dive (similar to Discover Scuba Diving or DSD) or you are certified as a  PADI Scuba Diver, you may get credit from the Scuba Diver courses to the Open Water programme. Your underwater adventure can begin as soon as today with the new PADI Open Water eLearning online theory work! You can view this at your own pace and then meet with one of our instructors for further assistance. 

PLEASE NOTE: eLearning is online learning from PADI, designed specifically for computer use.  If you want to do the online learning from a mobile device please let us know as this requires different software called PADI Touch.

So what are you waiting for? Your only regret is likely to be that you didn’t learn to dive even earlier!

We can even run the pool sessions at your hotel (with their permission) or villa (if it’s large enough) in Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Canggu, Sanur, Nusa Dua and may other locations in Bali.  Ask for details.

You can also complete the PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course at the same time as the Open Water course to increase your bottom time, reduce your surface intervals and your no fly time.

NOTE:  Divers must be 15 years old or older to participate in the Open Water Course. If aged 10 – 14 years old, they can do the Junior Open Water.  This automatically become the full certification when the diver turns 15 years old.

Students must be in good health to take the course and are required to complete a brief medical questionnaire.  Click here to view the medical form.  If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions on the first page, you will need to visit your doctor and obtain medical approval before registering for the course.

You need to allow 18 hours to pass before flying after diving! So if flying the following day, make sure it is after 7am.
