Open Water Diver

The PADI Open Water Diver program is an entry-level scuba diving certification course designed to provide individuals with the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience to safely and confidently dive in the open water. The program consists of three main components:


  1. Knowledge Development (Theory)

  2. Fundamentals (Buoyancy, Divers Weighting, Breathing techniques)

  3. Confined Water Dives (Practical skill training)

  4. Open Water Dives (Application of skills and exploration in the ocean)


This course is suitable for individuals who are new to scuba diving and want to learn how to dive safely and comfortably, as well as those who have tried diving before and want to become certified. Becoming a certified diver opens up a world of diving possibilities allowing you to dive at a large variety of locations, sharing your passion for underwater exploration with millions of others. 


Upon completion, you will be ready to safely dive up to 18 meters deep anywhere on the planet.

Why is this course unique ?

Throughout this program - beyond learning the fundamentals and meeting the standard performance requirements - we focus on helping students to master essential areas such as buoyancy control, dive planning, navigation, and awareness. This approach helps to develop the right mindset for diving as a team and improve problem-solving abilities underwater.


We provide extensive training to make sure our students are not only becoming certified but also safe and confident divers. We take a longer and more thorough approach to the training process so that our students have the necessary knowledge and skills to dive safely and independently. 

We pay special attention to all details as we are committed to preparing our divers to handle any situation that may arise while diving, which is why we believe that our longer and more extensive training is worth the effort.


Furthermore, we provide our students with speciality dive gear inspired by technical diving, which will enhance safety, comfort, and performance. This gear is not typically available to entry-level divers, so it gives our students an edge over others and prepares them for the more advanced levels of scuba diving. Our exclusive training program is helping our students to achieve their full potential as divers and providing them with the foundation for their diving progression in the future.

Why train with us ?

We are highly skilled and experienced professionals with a background in cave and technical diving. We've used our expertise to develop an exceptional course beyond the traditional boundaries of entry-level training. We prefer an adaptive teaching approach, which prioritizes student-centered learning and adjusts instruction to meet each student's unique needs and abilities. With this strategy, we can identify and address any difficulties or areas of confusion you may experience and provide the support and guidance you need to be successful.


We believe that every individual should receive proper attention during their training; therefore, our courses have a low student-teacher ratio of 2:1 maximum, ensuring that you receive personalized instruction throughout the program.


At FlowState Divers, our mission is to provide the highest quality training experience to our students. We understand that learning to scuba dive can be complex and challenging; therefore, we conduct our training over a minimum of 6 days to ensure you receive the best service possible.
