PADI Open Water

If you haven’t dived before, then this is the place to start! The course takes three to four days and teaches you all the skills and theory you need to get diving. By the end of the course you will have an internationally recognised qualification, allowing you to dive anywhere around the world.

Our Open Water course gives you four dives, with nearly three hours of dive time. We keep our class sizes small with a maximum of six people per instructor – to ensure we maximise your safety and comfort whilst you learn. Aqua Africa’s location means we always have a sheltered area for practicing your skills.
