Summary: For anyone who is 10 years of age or older
This course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you.
PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet. Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.
The PADI Scuba Diver course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge Development to understand basic principles of scuba diving.
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills – just the first three of five dives of the Open Water Diver course
- Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore – just two of four dives of the Open Water Diver course.
