With the PADI Open Water Diver course you get the basic training for recreational scuba diving. This PADI course takes 3 days to finish and starts every day either in the morning or afternoon. We keep the groups small with normally no more than 4 students to 1 instructor.
The training in the water is in general in the mornings. in the afternoons you have time to complete the required theory through e-learning. The schedule for the PADI Open Water Diver course looks like this (but is subject to change due to availabilty of instructors and weather conditions; this means your dives can be mornings or afternoons)
If you are short in time, please get in touch with us and we will arrange a private course with different schedule for you!
