We invite you to the PADI – Open Water Diver diving course, where you will take your first steps in diving, start breathing underwater, hang in the water and finally get your first diving certificate in the most popular and widely recognized PADI diving organization in the world.

You must be at least 10 years old to enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course. You must have basic swimming skills, be in good physical condition and have an enthusiastic attitude. You can complete all required documents at home or in our Diving Center. We do not require prior diving experience. With us, at your own pace, you will acquire all the knowledge and skills you need
The course consists of 5 theoretical sessions, during which you will learn the basics of what laws govern the underwater world, how it affects the human body and what equipment is needed for a diver to spend some time underwater. We will introduce you to the principles of safe diving so that you feel comfortable during swimming classes and diving in open waters. You will have enough time for you to learn and practice everything at your own pace. If you do not have much time, you can learn the theory and pass it in the e-learning version, online on PADI websites.
During the course, you will learn how to use basic diving equipment. We will familiarize you with diving equipment so that you can use it yourself, adapt it to your own requirements and know its capabilities. During the course, we will equip you with complete diving equipment, we recommend that you have your own ABC (mask, snorkel and fins) after the first swimming class.
After the first theoretical classes, we will choose the equipment for you and start a cycle of five pool sessions, during which we will conduct exercises and practice the skills, techniques, procedures and principles that you will learn during theoretical classes. Comfort and safety are the most important things during these classes. You will have as much time to exercise as you need until you think you are ready to take the next step – diving in open waters.
During 4 dives in open waters you will use all the skills that you practiced in the pool. You will make the most of the knowledge you have acquired so far. To carry out this part of the course, we can choose a place convenient for you, such as “Excavators” in Jaworzno, Kamionka “Piast” in Opole or warm waters of the Red Sea or Croatia.
