The PADI Open Water Certificate
Internationally recognised, PADI Open Water is the first certificate for beginners who want to dive anywhere in the world to depths of 18m. maximum. To obtain your PADI certificate you will need to complete online a theoretical course (prior the courses). Once you are done with the theory it's time to practice! You will start the course in shallow water in a pool, where your instructor will teach you how to use the scuba gear. After the shallow water dive you will have 4 Open Water dives, two from shore and two from a boat in the ocean! 

Carel and his team from Dive Inn can't wait to share with you their passion of scuba diving, and take you out in the ocean to explore this fantastic world! It's a safe and fun way to learn a new sport that will make you seek for underwater adventures for the rest of your life!
