Openwater Diver (PADI or SDI)
Course Code NDAC-PADI-OWD or NDAC-SDI-OWD

PADI Open Water Diver
The Openwater Diver course teaches you the foundational knowledge and skills you need to dive with a buddy, independent of supervision anywhere in the world, to a maximum of 18 meters (12 meters for Junior divers aged 10 – 14).

Earning your Openwater Diver certification is just the beginning. As a certified diver, fabulous dive destinations, exciting people, unparalleled adventure and uncommon tranquillity await you. Also, as you continue your adventure and gain experience through higher training levels, your opportunities expand.

New for 2017, we are providing this certification through either PADI or SDI (Scuba Divers International).

Our course list below reflects which agency will be used for certification purposes and so each course will be exclusive to the individual agency.

Both agency certifications are equally valid and recognised worldwide.

The Open Water Course is run over two weekends.

  • Weekend one Theory and Pool Dives.
  • Weekend Two Openwater Qualifying Dives.

The theory and qualifying dives are held at the National Diving & Activity Centre.

The pool dives are held at Thornbury Leisure Centre

If you wish, you can complete the knowledge development portion of the PADI Open Water Diver course online with PADI eLearning. However, you will be required to take a formal multi-choice review question paper at a formal classroom session.

Accommodation is available at the NDAC Wooden Wigwam Village >
