Introduction to course
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular diving certificate worldwide. After completing this 3-4 day course you are certified to dive to 18m independently with a buddy. The course consists of five modules of learning. You study via self-study workbook and complete a knowledge review. This process is assisted by videos accompanying each chapter to reinforce what you have learned. The instructor reviews everything with you to ensure that everything are confidently understood. The practical learning consists of pool sessions and four open water dives. Dive one and two are conducted at a depth of max 12m and dive three and four are conducted at max 18m. The final stage of the PADI Open Water course is an exam, which is a multiple choice exam covering all that you have learnt. Remember that the course is performance based and not time based. The course generally takes 3 to 4 days, with the theoretical, the pool and the open water part successfully passed.
Itinerary - 6 days and 5 nights PADI Open Water Course + Deep Dive
The PADI Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 3 to 4 days depending on the students enrolled. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below:
Arrive with the ferry, walk down to the resort and check in. From there, you will be shown to your room and the dive center. Once you’ve settled, you’ll return to the dive center to fill in all the necessary paperwork, watch the first videos and discuss the course schedule for the coming days.

Depending on how confortable you are in the water after your Open Water Course, this is the day where you and your instructors will go diving in one of the channels. If you are not feeling ready, don't worry, you will just take this extra day of diving inside the atoll, wich will also be a good experience.
This is your day to "off gas". You need to allow 24 hrs between your last dive, and flying. If you are not flying within the next 24 hrs we highly recommend that you go and use your new certificate, with some fundiving!
Relax & check out. (Or extend your stay and go fun diving some more!)
Please allow a minimum of 24 hours, after your last dive, before flying.
(some countries will allow you to fly after 18 hours on land).
