PADI Open Water Diver Course

Want to become a certified PADI diver?  The PADI Open Water Diver Course  will teach you the fundamentals of scuba diving and allows you to explore the underwater world.

What is the Open Water Diver Course?

The PADI Open Water Diver certification enables you to dive with your buddy, independently, to a maximum depth of eighteen meters.  At any point in the future, you can upgrade your certification to the PADI Advanced Open Water level.


What will I do?

This course is student centered, meaning that we will ensure that you have mastered all skills before advancing to the next level.  If you need extra time to practice skills, no problem!  We’re happy to work with you until you get it right.

The PADI Open Water Diver Course normally consists of four days of training.  The first two days consists of the knowledge development and confined water training dives in our ocean view infinity pool.  The last two days include four open water training dives, first day up to 12m depth and second day up to 18m depth.  After successful completion of this course, you will receive your PADI Open Water Diver Certification — your license to dive anywhere in the world, for life!



Don’t want to spend any of your Bali time studying?  You can complete the academic work in your home, at your own pace. All that you need is a computer and internet connection and you can plan your own lessons schedule. If in doubt about theory feel free to contact us and our Instructors will Skype you back and assist your progress. Once in Bali you will finish confined and the four open water training dives. This leaves you much more time to explore the other great dive sites around Bali. Start your diving adventure now!


Where will I go?

Zen Dive strongly believes in providing quality dives for the open water training dive part of the course.  For this reason we will always choose top quality dives sites such as Tulamben, Padang Bay, Menjangan Island, Puri Jati, or Pemuteran, depending of course if you are at North or East Bali.


What`s next?

Once you have completed the PADI Open Water Diver Course, you’re eligible to become an Advanced PADI Diver. You can also hop all the way to PADI Rescue Course and participate in Knowledge Development and Rescue Exercises in confined water, even before getting certified as an Advance Open Water Diver! Also if you wish to add some fun dives to your holidays, we offer 10% discount to all our students!
