What Qualifications Do I Need to Start?
- A PADI Jr Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 11 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
What Will I Do?
Throughout the PADI open water course, you will learn the basic fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment, dive theory and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and one knowledge development session and by making four open water (ocean or bay) dives. The ocean dives can be done at the beach or bay here locally in San Diego.
All students are expected to arrive to class on time with homework completed. Prior to starting the course, all students must answer all knowledge reviews in the PADI Open Water Manual and watch the PADI Open Water DVD. Any student whom does not complete homework assignment prior to class start time will not be able to start class and rescheduling fees may apply.
Cancellation Policy: When less than two weeks notice is given or where the cancellation/change of dates results in a course falling below numbers of students required, rescheduling fees will be applied.Group Class Schedule: For Class Calendar see Calendar page.
