PADI Open Water Course


Looking for entry level scuba dive courses? Come to Cebu! We got you covered, we have flexible packages that suits your preference.

Scuba diving is an activity that is reserved for certified divers. This means that one has to have a valid, recognized certification from a training agency such as PADI. Should you wish to try scuba diving without the certification course, read more about the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program that we offer.

The Open Water diver certification is the entry level rating which allows you to participate in scuba diving activities, trips or fun dives without having the need for an instructor to directly supervise your dives. Our courses come with an eLearning module that enables you to complete the theory portion of the course at your home or workplace, at your own pace and time. You only come to use to participate in your 2 day dive training conducted by verifiable, qualified and experienced PADI instructors and instructor trainers. When you are looking to take your open water course in Cebu, there is no better place to do it than with Dive Funatics.
