If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the the amazing variety of life beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

Columbia Scuba's PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (classroom, home study or online ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.
