Open water Dive Course

Last Frontier Dive reputation of providing professionally conducted courses is unmatched. Our personal pledge is to assure you of the best equipment there is, best boats there are in our area, highly knowledgable, professional, motivated and fun loving instructors and other supporting staff.

Now is the time to dive into the Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, the dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.

One reason for our success is that we keep our classes really small and give our outmost attention to every single student. The Open Water provides you with the knowledge and skills you’ll need to safely visit the underwater world. Upon successful completion of this course you will be awarded the PADI Open Water Diver certification card.

Your Confined Water Training will be held next to the beautiful reef in front of Last Frontier Dive, after each of your confined water sessions and  Open Water Dives (4 Dives) you will be able to discover the underwater world right away.

Our principle in scuba teaching is: learning by doing. We have to do some classroom work, but we want to spend as much time in the water as possible.

Whenever environmental conditions allow it, we start the practical side of the course right away at our house reef instead of a swimming pool. We start this in shallow water, just chest deep, to get acquainted to the underwater world, and then do some practical skills which are required to become an Open Water diver.

After skill development we usually have some time left, and air in our tanks, so we dive right away over to the coral garden teeming with fish at the drop off of our steep coral wall.

We make sure you leave us as a confident scuba diver. The course fee includes everything to complete the course, no hidden charges or registration fees.

However, if you like to buy material you can purchase books, dive tables, dive computer as well as other scuba diving equipment in our dive shop.

Bring a medical statement from your doctor that you’re fit for diving if you take any medications. You need 3 days to complete the Open Water Diver course.

And if you have to abort the course for any reasons, you don’t have to pay the full price of the course, only the parts which you have done.

What do I need to start?
Anyone who is in good health condition, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can learn a Open Water Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14years old, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.
* A PADI Jr Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 12 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet.
