PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course in Tamarin

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the basic certification required to experience the wonderful maritime life worldwide and without a diving instructor.

Padi Open Water Diver Course - Tamarin (West Coast)

During the course your instructor will teach you basic theoretical knowledge – you will have to take a test at the end of each chapter to ensure proper assimilation of scuba diving basics, along with a final theoretical exam on all the material covered. You can also choose the e-learning option and complete the theoretical part, prior to your dives. You will learn the practical skills of diving during 5 swimming pool sessions and 4 open water dives.

This program suits anyone with a keen interest to learn about scuba diving, as long as they have reasonably good swimming abilities, and are in good health. Spanning over three and a half days, the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course consists of a combination of 5 swimming pool practice sessions, theoretical sessions, 4 open sea dives and a final written exam.
