Open Water

As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. If you already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, check with our instructors to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water program.

What do I need to start?

Virtually anyone who is in good health (form in english or chinese) , reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. You must be older than the age of 14 to begin the PADI Open Water Diver program. For those of you who are not above the age of 14 and would like to participate in the PADI Open Water Diver Program, then the PADI Junior Open Water Diver program is available to you.

How long will it take?

PADI Open Water usually takes 3 days to complete, if you need a bit of extra time then don't worry, additional days can be arranged at RM425 per day.

What will I do?

Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five confined open water dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four to five open water dives


If you are short on time or would like to maximize your time in the water then it is possible to complete the PADI Open Water Diver Theory class online before you arrive and take the practical part of the course here. You will need to pay a fee to PADI which is currently AUD210 and can then complete the 2 day practical part of the course here with us.
