PADI Open Water Diver Course


From €450

PADI Open Water Diver CourseLearning to dive could not be easier with the PADI Open Water Diver course. This is the foundation diving course that has been developed over decades, and allows practically anybody to become a safe, knowledgeable and confident diver. The instructional format of this course allows a seamless transition from complete novice to qualified diver, and with the help, guidance and knowledge of your Active Andalus Instructor, you’ll finish your course knowing you’ve been trained to a very high standard.

So how does the course work? The PADI Open Water Course is split into three components; knowledge development, skills training and practice, and finally application of the knowledge and skills in the open sea, which can be carried out over four days.

PADI Open Water Diver Course

Gaining the Knowledge.

Included in the course is a comprehensive and very informative manual (available in both print or digitally), that introduces you to the all of the important concepts of diving, along with the equipment you’ll be using, a description of the skills, dive planning and much, much more. You work your way through this, completing the small quizzes and knowledge reviews, and then complete a final exam.

Gaining the skills.

PADI Open Water Diver CourseDiving is made easy by having the skills and knowing when to use them. We’re going to show you all of the key skills, giving you a description of each skill, followed then by a demonstration of each skill by your instructor (above and below the water), and then finally you’ll have chance to practice the skill and show that you have mastered it. The skills development session is more than the sum of its parts as you’ll start to develop a routine of safe and efficient equipment assembly, safety checks, dive planning and adherence to the ‘Buddy System’. This training is carried out in a swimming pool where the focus is on learning the skill in a safe and benign environment.

Gaining the experience.

PADI Open Water Diver CoursePutting the previously acquired skills and knowledge into practice you’ll conduct four dives in the open sea. Each dive allows you time to explore our local environment, and to further demonstrate proficiency of your diving skills. Of importance now is the ability to think  about your dive plan, work as a ‘Buddy Team’, show good control of your buoyancy and that you can demonstrate your competency underwater. With each dive your confidence grows and by the fourth and final dive you would have earned your PADI Open Water Diver certificate!

Active Andalus offers a comprehensive course that includes everything you’ll need including –

• Full equipment for diving including wetsuit, BCD, regulator set, air/EANx dive computer, cylinders, hood, gloves, boots, fins, mask and weight system
• Choice of learning options that include printed manual or digital media (guide here)
• PADI Divers Logbook
• Certification upon successful completion of the course

And to maximise your enjoyment and safety you’ll never find more than two students per instructor!

How can you start? You’ll need to be at least 14 years of age, have a medical form signed by your doctor, make sure you’re happy with our terms & conditions , and then you can check out the costs and booking procedures here.

You can book just the course for €450 or alternatively enjoy a fully inclusive diving holiday from just €799
