It doesn't matter if you have never dived before, you can get your first certificate with Mykonos Diving Centre and be a certified diver, able to dive all around the world. With PADI your diving passion comes true with a few easy steps.
The Open Water Certificate
The Open Water program is an entry level certification course in scuba diving. This exciting programme includes some academic study in the areas of diving physics, physiology, medicine, environment and dive safety. You can complete the theoretical part online via the PADI platform.
Additionally, in the classroom which is conveniently located in front of the beach, you will have a minimum of 12 training hours in shallow water and 5 open water dives are required with emphasis placed on physical fitness, diving hazards, personal limitations and how to behave underwater to stay safe as a diver.
This can be accomplished over a period of 4 days, in an intensive, private program which includes 2 theory lessons and 2 dives daily. Open Water graduates will be competent in basic open water diving activities and will receive a certification card.
All the Instructors of Diving Mykonos are fully certified by the world's largest certification agencies. Most importantly they are very friendly and will make you feel at ease underwater. Diving Mykonos is notorious in Mykonos for being the best diving centre, providing top-quality courses.
Who Should take The Open Water Scuba Diver Program?

The open water certification is the heart and soul of every diving program and your key to the diving world wherever you go for holiday to depths of 18 metres.

The Advanced Open Water Certificate
The Advanced Open Water Course by PADI is an introduction, in more detail than Open Water Training, to the new dimensions of diving.
