Pool Diving ScubaNow is the time to dive into the NASE Worldwide or Padi Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with NASE Worldwide & Padi, the dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.

Why NASE Worldwide & Padi Open Water?

As a certified NASE Worldwide or 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 NASE Worldwide & Padi Discover Scuba Diving experience or are NASE Worldwide & Padi Scuba Diver certified, check with your instructor 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, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a NASE Worldwide & Padi Open Water Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a NASE Worldwide & Padi Junior Open Water Diver program available. You are required to swim 200 yards, and tread water for 10 mins to become certified. There are no exceptions.

  • A NASE Worldwide or Padi Jr Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 12 years may only dive with a NASE Worldwide & Padi Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.

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 pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives. How long will it take? NASE Worldwide & Padi programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.  You are required to swim 200 yards, 10 min tread water.  You must need to know how to swim
