What will you learn?

PADI Open Water course has 3 main phases:

  • Knowledge development: 3 options
    i) Online
    ii) Independent study (scuba monkey will provide you with a manual)
    iii) In Scuba Monkey’s classroom (3d Vision link to show monkey?)
    This will provide you with all the basic principles of scuba diving, you will complete all 5 sections of the Open Water Diver Course
  • Confined water dives
    We teach you over 20 scuba skills in your hotel pool or local sheltered bay (Green Bay) allowing you to practice and master each before moving into the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea
  • Open Water dives
    We take you diving in the sea for 4 open water dives, where we will have fun, check out the local marine life and evaluate you on the skills you have learnt in your confined water sessions.

How can you start learning now?

Online learning keeps more of your holiday days free for the fun stuff, perfect if you don’t want to spend time in the classroom. These options also include the video and is the premium version of the open water course for all you VIP’s out there. It’s better for the planet too – no paper!

  • PADI eLearning – do all the theory, quizzes and final exam from the 5 sections before you go on holiday, then do the practical application when you arrive (the fun stuff!)
  • Open Water Dive Touch – brand new for all you tech addicts. This interactive software also guides you through the 5 sections of the open water course with a fluid swipe of your finger across your tablet. Select the open water touch option from Scuba Monkey’s eLearning link

What scuba gear will you use?

You learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank
Additional materials needed: a log book (if you opted for the online or touch learning options)
