Open Water Certificate
The Open Water Certificate is the first certificate of your diving experience. You do not need to have dived before, you just need to be able to swim.
Armed with your PADI Open Water Diver card, this certification is recognised at dive centres worldwide and you will learn to dive safely to a depth of 18m with a buddy (12m for 10 & 11 year olds).
Throughout the course, you'll learn the theory of scuba diving, extend your knowledge of dive equipment and improve your diving skills. The course is made up of 5 theory sessions, 5 dive skill sessions in confined water to practice skills and 4 open water dives in the Lefkada Sea from the boat or shore depending on which dive site you visit. You will also be asked to complete water skills including a 10-minute float and a 200m swim.
Upon completion of the course you'll be a certified PADI Open Water Diver, recognised worldwide. After the Open Water course, you can move on to the Advanced Open Water course.
