More important information about the PADI Open Water Course

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases, they are as follows:

  • Knowledge Development ( independent study using your digital manual accessible via your browser or with the use of the PADI Library App on Android or IOS) to understand basic principles of scuba diving;
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills; and
  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!

This course is designed to be completed in 2 in-water training days. It is important that you complete your independent study prior to the start of your training with us.

Download the Medical Questionnaire here and go through each of the questions. If you answer YES to any of the questions, it is important that you secure a written and signed medical clearance from your doctor prior to the start of your training. Please note that we cannot enter the water unless you either have ALL YES answers, or with a written and signed medical clearance from your medical doctor.

Unless otherwise arranged or specified, all course training will be conducted at the house reef of Kontiki Marina, Mactan, Cebu.

Ruby Rocks / Oxygen bar, a restaurant inside the resort is an ideal place to stay and hang around at in between in-water training sessions. They serve meals at a reasonable price.
