For most people, the PADI Open Water course is the best first step toward becoming a scuba diver. Your instructor will begin with shore lessons, lead you in confined water skills practice, and then let you put your skills to the test on a series of dives in our beautiful local reef as you take your PADI Open Water Course here in Bohol. Open Water certification prepares you with the knowledge and skills you need to dive independently in a variety of conditions, and is recognized everywhere in the world.
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the sport of diving.
