Explore the spectacular ecology of our oceans with the PADI Open Water dive course. A team of professional instructors and assisting dive masters will take you from cyber classroom to seabed (plunging to 18 metres!), leaving you with PADI's internationally-recognised diving licence. Expect a transforming experience-and discover what your life has been missing on-board the Seaborne Vessel off the coast of Batam, Indonesia over 3D / 2N 

The PADI Open Water Dive Course is an entry-level certification course designed to give you the necessary skills to safely enjoy open water dives. Among the skills you've learn are: buoyancy, proper weighting, marine environment and conservation, equipment assembly, dive planning and equipment maintenance.

The course has three components: 1) Knowledge Development Sessions completed on line before the next component 2) Confined Water Dives where you'll learn the fundamentals of scuba diving (mask clearing etc), and 3) Open Water Evaluation, the most important and exciting part of the course where your new skills will be evaluated in the ocean.

This course is the key to a lifetime of marine explorations. Dive destinations around the globe, as well as those in your backyard, will then be yours for the taking.

Detailed Course Structure

Knowledge Development Session: Upon registration you'll receive the login and password for the online self-study component of this course.

Confined Water Session: The confined water session will take place at Nongsa Point & Resorts, Batam. During the sessions, fundamental skills of scuba diving that are required to keep a diver safe will be taught. Divers will also be introduced to all diving equipment needed during the course.

Even though the fees include all gear needed for the duration of the course, it is advisable that divers invest in their own mask, fins, snorkel and wetsuit prior to the confined water session. This is because students adapt faster using their own gear, as they feel more comfortable and relaxed during the training. Moreover, subsequent dives will require little or no adjustment to the equipment because they are already accustomed to their gear.

Open Water Evaluation Session: This is the most important and exciting part of the course. The open water training allows instructors to assess whether dive students are able to care for themselves and a diving buddy after they've completed the course. You will take part in 6 sessions in open water.

What's included in the program?

All you will need to bring is your swimming attire and your instructor will provide the rest!

We bought this for our son for his 10th birthday and I think it is the most amazing present we have ever given him. He loved the course, he worked hard on the theory component, and was incredibly proud when he completed the course. He finished the course in March and has now done 10 dives! He absolutely loves it. We wanted to give him something memorable for his 10th birthday and I think this experience was perfect. He will never forget his 10th birthday present.
