Open Water Diver

Open Water Diver Course in Dahab

First, we need to check that you have no pre-existing medical conditions which may an issue while scuba diving. All being, well and assuming you can complete a basic swim test, you can get started!

During the course you will complete five theory modules to give a good grounding in dive theory and safety. Mixed in, will be five shallow water training sessions in our beautiful bay (also referred to as ‘confined’ water sessions) where you will learn the safety skills to become a confident and competent diver.

Once we have established your basic safety skills, the fun steps up a gear with the four open water dives!

Open Water Dives

The first two dives will be down to a maximum of 12 meters. Now, you will really start to appreciate the idea of buoyancy control, while discovering some fantastic marine life.
Open water dives three and four will take you down to a maximum 18 meters and, whenever possible, we like to venture out of the bay so that you can see some of Dahab’s other great dive sites.

PADI Certification

Once certified, your PADI Open Water Diver card will open up many of the world’s diving destinations for you to discover!

Open Water Diver Referral

If you want to maximise the time actually diving on your holiday, you have two options of completing some of the Open Water Diver course before heading out to Dahab.

One option is to complete the PADI online eLearning program. This lets you complete all the theory modules and even sit the exam in the comfort of your own home. Once you arrive at Sea Dancer, we do a theory review and then you can get straight into the water for the fun stuff! While this option doesn’t make the course significantly shorter, it does mean you have more time to relax on your holiday.

The other option is to sign up with a local PADI dive center and complete the theory and five confined water sessions near to where you live. When you come out to Dahab all we need to do is complete a quick knowledge review and some in-water safety skills before we head out into the sea for the four open water dives.
