PADI Open Water Diver Course Online:

The most popular option is the PADI Open Water Diver Course with E-learning! As a new diver you can do the E-learning at home before you come to Sicily so you are already prepared and know the basics of diving in theory. The E-learning part of PADI will include all theory, quizzes and exam. Once you are in Sicily we will review the theory and there will be time to ask questions, talk about the different aspects of diving with the instructor and have the chance to interact with the other students to share your first experiences under water! When you will be certified, you are allowed to dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters together with a buddy or a PADI Dive Professional. This certification will be valid for a life time!

Our first time under water will be in the swimming pool so you can get used to breathing underwater and your buoyancy, in a nice and comfortable environment. You will practice different skills in order to get used to the equipment, the breathing and the weightlessness we call buoyancy. This will take a half a day.

After the swimming pool we will be practicing everything you learned…. in the Open Water! Here it all really starts! The sea will reveal it’s mysteries to you when you put on your mask, breathe from your regulator and descend together with your Instructor and your buddies. The first 2 dives will be to a maximum depth of 12 meters and the last 2 dives will be at a maximum depth of 18 meters. A totally new experience! You will do 2 dives a day, during our daily diving program.

For 10 and 11 year olds, it is possible to do the Junior Open Water Diver Course. The schedule and the content of the course are exactly the same. The only difference is that the maximum depth of the course and the certification will be 12 meters. After certification the Junior Open Water Diver must dive with a parent/guardian or PADI Professional. Also the parent/guardian must sign all the administrative forms.

For 12, 13 and 14 years olds, we also offer the Junior Open Water Diver Course. The course is exactly the same as the normal Open Water Diver Course. The Junior Open Water Diver must dive with an adult certified diver and a parent/guardian has to sign all the administrative forms.

Our professional team of PADI Professionals will be more than happy to teach you diving and we will be waiting for you here in Sicily to develop you into a confident and competent PADI diver!
