CONFINED WATER LESSONS The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Confined Water with BLUE OCTOPUS SCUBA

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous 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.


What You Learn

The complete PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore! 

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.

PADI e-Learning

You can start your adventure today at home or on-the-go with PADI e-Learning on your computer, tablet, or phone.

Blue Octopus Scuba offers three choices for completing the PADI Open Water course

  • Complete Confined Water Dives with us first weekend and complete Open Water Dives a second weekend
  • Referral course.  Don't spend your vacation time or dollars sitting in a classroom or at the bottom of a pool!  Complete Confined Water Dives with us and ask for referral to any PADI resort or retailer worldwide.  There is no additional charge for this referral
  • 3-day Combined course.  Save time and combine Confined Water and Open Water in a 3-day weekend at the lake.

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:


The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

PADI Open Water Diver students must own or purchase a scuba-grade mask, snorkel, fins, and botties.  Come into the store and we'll help you obtain a personalized fit.  All the above items will also work great for snorkeling.  Course tuition includes rental of all other required scuba equipment including bouyancy compensator device (BCD), weights, tanks, and computer.  In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by a BLUE OCTOPUS SCUBA Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.


The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD. Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering the learning material in an Elearning environment via the internet.

Contact BLUE OCTOPUS SCUBA to personalise the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.
