 PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular way to learn to dive  in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with Ocean Turtle Diving, Hampshire's leading diver training organisation.

Why PADI Open Water?

As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognised and respected initial diving qualification, you have the freedom to dive anywhere in the world with a buddy who is similarly, or better, qualified.


Ocean Turtle Diving offers two options - PADI Open Water Diver certification or a Referral course where you complete the final four qualifying dives at a later stage, typically while you are on holiday.

What do I need to start?

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water (able to swim 200 metres non-stop and tread water for 10 minutes) can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification.
You must be 15 years or older to begin the PADI Open Water Diver programme but for those between 10 and 15 years of age, the PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification is available. It provides the same thorough training but with some minor diving restrictions.

What will I need?

We supply all required learning materials as part of the course! These will include:


  • (for elearning students) Access to the PADI e-learning system and on-line version of the Open Water Diver Manual and your own personal log book and training record.
  • (for classroom students) The Open Water Diver Manual and your own personal log book and training record.

We supply all major items of equipment for your confined and open water dives but student divers are expected to own basic equipment of mask, fins, snorkel and boots (if required).


All student divers will be provided with a dive computer for their Open Water dives - after all, it is how experienced divers have been managing their diving for years.

What Next?

Once you have completed your Open Water certification you can then look at the PADI Advanced Open Water course; or why not try a PADI Specialty Diver programe?.

It's a gift for someone and I don't know which date to book?

No problem, book the course on-line for the dummy course on the 25th December and we will know that you will want to move to your chosen date at a later stage. There is no extra cost for this option.
