Get your PADI scuba certification. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts.
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three phases:
- Knowledge Development (online, iPad, or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
- Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!
- Drysuit skills and dives.
Unlike most dive stores – we include drysuits, thermal undergarments and drysuit certification with our open water courses. We want you to have the best possible experience exploring BC waters!
To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be 10 years or older (PADI eLearning requires an extra registration step for students under 13 years due to international internet laws).
All courses are run by Pacific Pro Dive located in Courtenay, Vancouver Island, BC. You must be able to take the course with us locally to purchase. Once purchased our staff will contact you to set up a schedule.
