Become a certified Scuba Diver
The PADI Open Water Diver program is the first step for a scuba diver. Learning the basics of scuba diving, you will feel that the aquatic world is close and fun. With this license, you can dive all over the world. Would you like to enjoy underwater time with us?
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of 3 parts – “knowledge development” – study at your home and class room, “confined water dives” – train at the beach and “open water dives” – dive from boat. It is normally a 2.5 day program. However, you cannot take your flight on the day you dive. We recommend that you manage your schedule with time to spare.
After training, you are certified as a PADI Open Water Diver and get the Certification Card. With this certification card, you stay in water shallower than about 18 meters and are able to enjoy diving anywhere - all over the world. Since the certification will not expire, you will be a diver for the rest of your life.
You must be 10 years or older and medically fit. (If you are younger than 20 years old, your parent or guardian’s signature is required).
All divers should check the PADI Medical Statement (participant record). If you have answered “yes” to any questions in the medical questionnaire section, you must provide a report from a doctor indicating that you are fit to dive, including any recommended restrictions or limitations. If you do not have a doctor’s report, you will not be permitted to take dive or take the courses. If you have any questions, please contact in advance by email.
After booking the PADI Open Water Diver course and paying in advance, you get the course manual and DVD. There are knowledge reviews to complete, quick quizzes and the exam. Please fill up them before arriving to our diving shop.。
At first, check through your manual and review your unclear points. The end of the class, you will take the exam.
We will take you to the beach. Here you will complete some surface skills and get used to diving in an open water environment.
Take the diving boat from the morning and dive in the ocean. You will dive three times during the day in the beautiful ocean and lots of fish around Ishigaki Island.
If all goes well, the training course will be done during the first dive of the day. Congratulations!! You are now a diver and can start diving the same as the other divers.
