Open Water Diver
Learn from the best
Open Water Diver is the first scuba certification level. A highly-trained PADI Instructor will teach you how to scuba dive in a relaxed, supportive learning environment on beautiful Bonaire.
Start your course in our own training pool which we use until you are comfortable enough for the ocean. We take our time conducting the course and take you to beautiful sites all along the island of Bonaire. The course is taught in small groups with a maximum of 4 people by professional instructors who care for the safety and fun of their student divers. We offer more personal attention, more fun, and a real quality dive experience and education.
Explore the world
The course consists of three parts: knowledge development, 5 confined water sessions, and 4 open water dives. Ultimately, the entire course takes 3 full days of diving when you complete the e-learning in advance of the course.
A scuba diving certification or ‘Open Water Diver certification’ allows you to dive anywhere in the world. Similar to driving a car, scuba diving requires specific knowledge, skills and training. A PADI Open Water Diver certification is your passport to underwater adventure. When you become a PADI diver, you join the largest community in the world. With over 29 million certified divers to date, there is no better time to start exploring the underwater world. There’s nothing better than the thrill of learning a skill that opens your eyes to a whole new world of adventure.
VIP Diving accepts PADI Open Water referrals. If you’re interested in finishing your course in the beautiful Bonaire waters, contact us to make arrangements. Referrals are often completed in two days, but it depends on how much you have previously completed in the course.Book Course
