Open Water Diver

PADI Open Water Scuba Diver is your entry-level course into the amazing underwater world. Two thirds of our world is covered in water – start exploring the rarely explored! From Shipwrecks to abundant Marine Life, there is a lot to be enjoyed under the waves.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be qualified to dive to 18 meters and have the opportunity to further your qualifications to allow you to explore more of the underwater world.

The course is run over three Thursday evenings at the Bundoora campus, followed by a full weekend on the Mornington Peninsula.

For further information on the Open Water Diver course, please download the Open Water Diver Course Information Sheet.

A full dive medical will be required prior to undertaking the Open Water Diver Course. Please see SPUMS for a full list of dive medical doctors in your area. Please note, different doctors charge different rates for dive medicals, so it is worth ringing around.
