The PADI Open Water Diver is the most recognized diver certification in the dive industry and will allow you to dive anywhere in the world, independent of professional supervision, to a maximum depth of 18m. Choosing the right place for your initial diving course is vital. The professionalism of the dive center and the instructor is just as important as the diving itself. Pair up incredible jungle on land with amazing diving in the ocean and a top class dive center in Quepos for your Open Water Course and you will have an experience for life.

The beauty of the reef here is not the corals growing in it, but the topography of the old lava flow. Big boulders, underwater mazes and dramatic walls are what you will be surrounded by. Take these incredible formations and add a healthy marine life to it such as most common reef fish, some funky octopus and a good variety of eels and crustaceans. For the larger pelagic, you might get lucky with anything from reef sharks, rays, sea turtles, dolphins and in season the majestic humpback whales and manta rays (Dec - April).

Surrounded by rainforest filled with monkeys and exotic birds, Puerto Quepos drapes itself across a tropical inlet surrounded by primary rainforest. The village center is a colorful six-block square of restaurants, bars, hotels, bakeries, and art galleries all fronted by the main beach and harbor. Even though Quepos is well visited and growing, it maintains many of its sleepy and humble beginnings.

Introduction to course
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular diving certificate worldwide. After completing this 3-4 day course you are certified to dive to 18 m independently with a buddy. The course consists of five modules of learning. Prior to arrival, you will receive a login to the PADI website from the dive center. Once you are logged in, a the step-by-step process will guide you through the theory module of your course. This process is assisted by videos and little quizzes to sum-up what you have learned. The final stage of the PADI e-learning, is an exam, which is a multiple choice exam covering all that you have learnt.

The PADI e-learning must be finished prior to arrival at the dive center.
The practical learning consists of pool sessions and four open water dives. Dive one and two are conducted at a depth of max 12 meters and dive three and four are conducted at max 18 meters. Remember that the course is performance based and not time based. The course generally takes 3 to 4 days, with the theoretical, the pool and the open water part successfully passed.


The PADI Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 3 to 4 days depending on the students enrolled. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below:
