Available In

This course is suitable for students

  • Who are at any level of English
  • Who are interested in getting their PADI certification
  • Students staying in Malta for 2 week. Students staying in Malta for only 1 week cannot take part in the Open Water Diving course. This is because the course needs at least 6 Half Days of Diving-Lessons and also needs a break between the last Diving-lesson and the flight of at least 12 hours (ideally 14-16 hours). It is dangerous for anyone to take a flight after their diving course without this break.This is not a problem for the PADI Advanced course to be delivered within a week

PADI Open Water Diving Course

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible.

The PADI Open Water Course introduces you to breathing underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. This is an entry level certification in the PADI dive education ladder. Students who successfully complete this course will receive an internationally recognised licence to dive with an instructor or dive master to a maximum depth of up to 18m.

The course is designed to get students in the water as quickly as possible so during the first two days the students usually spend time in class learning theory and practicing skills in the pool/confined water. Classes are held at the Dive Centre which is based at the Westin Hotel (down the road from the School). Once the student masters all the basic skills the instructor will take them out to do 4 dives in the local area. To optimise students’ classroom time with their instructor we encourage students read the books in their own time and classroom time is used for questions and developing concepts. Once certified the dive centre offers the students a free excursion (2 dives). In this way students can also experience different dive sites as well as meet other experienced divers.
