The PADI Open Water Diver is the most popular and recognized diver course in the world!
You’ll learn about scuba diving fundamentals, equipment and techniques. We start our classes with learning skills in the pool/confined open water and then you will dive on 4 open water dives (two beach dives and 2 boat dives out at the Channel Islands)
Your certification will allow you to dive anywhere in the world and it is good for life!
You may start your course in our classroom or you can start online and complete the knowledge work at your own pace. The course is structured so that you may progress according to your own individual ability.
The course can be taken in as little as 4 days, however boat and pool availability can extend the amount of days.
Our course cost includes: eLearning packet, Pool fees, the boat trip, certification card upon completion, and free rental gear for the course.*
Click here to download the medical questionaire to ensure that you are medically fit to dive. If you answer yes to any questions, it does not nessesarily disqualify you from diving. We would just need you physician to review the forms and sign you off before your class could start.
Our standard Open Water course will usually take place on two consecutive weekends. However, if you are going on a trip and need it faster, we have private courses available.
Once you complete any course, we offer you 20% off of all of our Truth Aquatics dive trips to the Channel Islands and 10% off of gear from our shop for 1 year.
* Free rental gear is included when you buy your own fins, mask, snorkel, boots, and gloves from SEA Landing Dive Center.
