Ready for Adventure?
Now is the time to dive into the
PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive programme in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with Ocean Turtle Diving, Hampshire's leading diver training organisation.
Why PADI Open Water?
As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognised and respected initial diving qualification, you have the freedom to dive anywhere in the world with a buddy who is similarly, or better, qualified.
Ocean Turtle Diving offers two options - Open Water Diver certification or a Referral course where you complete the final four qualifying dives at a later stage, typically while you are on holiday.
What do I need to start?
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water (able to swim 200 metres non-stop and tread water for 10 minutes) can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification.
You must be 15 years or older to begin the PADI Open Water Diver programme but for those between 10 and 15 years of age, the PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification is available. It provides the same thorough training but with some minor diving restrictions.
What will I need?
We supply all required learning materials as part of the course. These will include:
Access to the PADI e-learning system
An on-line version of the Open Water Diver Manual
Your own training record.
All major items of equipment for your confined and open water dives.
Student divers are expected to own basic equipment (mask & snorkel) for hygiene reasons.
All student divers will be provided with a dive computer for their Open Water dives - after all, it is how experienced divers have been managing their diving for years.
Once you have completed your Open Water certification you can then look at the PADI Advanced Open Water course; or why not try a PADI Specialty Diver programe?
