Open Water Diver

Chrissy

Learning to scuba dive gives you the opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of exploring Hawaii’s underwater world. Upon successful completion of this course, students become PADI Open Water Divers and can sign-up for our Two Tank Day Trip or the Kona Manta Ray Night Dive.

The PADI eLearning programs allows you to start the PADI Open Water Diver course immediately with either an on-line eLearning course, or the Touch version that allows you to use a tablet or iPad to do most of your studying offline.  In addition to the eLearning program, students also participate in pool training and four ocean dives at Jack’s Diving Locker in Kona, Hawaii.
