PADI Open Water - course description

All done via e-learning on the PADI app, the theory for the course will take you trough all 5 chapters, each with a quiz, you can watch the PADI training videos and then have access to the final exam.  All the theory can be completed at home ahead of time, so that you are ready to jump into the water when you arrive.

The first session takes place in our stunning infinity pool:  Your instructor will guide you through the equipment set up, teach you both the underwater and surface skills of the course and have you practice swimming around the pool in your equipment.

Best of all, the following 2 days, you will do 4 dives in the ocean under the direct supervision of your instructor. You will get used to swimming underwater with all the fish, mastering the skills as you go! You might just ‘bump into’ a turtle or a manta...Nusa Penida offers many stunning dives sites!

At Purple Dive, we are very aware that people are different and learn at different rates, so with us, your PADI Open Water course always has room for flexibility; just let your instructor know if you are having difficulties or think you might need additional help.

With your PADI Open Water certification

Enjoy diving all over the world!

After successfully completing the PADI Open Water course, you will be qualified to dive independently with a buddy, rent diving equipment and join guided dive tours all over the world!  You will be certified to dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters.  Although the Open Water Certification qualifies you to dive unguided with another similarly certified diver, we recommend getting some diving experience under you belt in the company of a PADI instructor or divemaster first, especially in conditions and at dive sites that are new to you.  (If you are under 15 and taken the PADI Junior Open Water Course, there are stricter depth and autonomy limitations.)

What do I need for my PADI Open Water course? 

Age: You are required to be 10 years or older (10-15 years will be certified as Junior Open Water Diver and will have shallower depth limitations)


Fitness: You should be in good physical health, able to swim 200 meters and float on the surface unassisted for 10 minutes.  No previous diving experience is required, although it does help if you have done some snorkelling.


Medical: For all PADI courses you are required to complete the PADI medical form; download it here. You may be required to get clearance from a doctor before the start of any in-water activity, so please review the form first. If you have any questions or if you think you will answer "yes" to any questions on page 2 of the form, please get in touch with us.


Theory: On payment of the deposit, we will issue you with the PADI e-learning materials.  Simply download the PADI app, complete the knowledge reviews, quizzes and watch the videos before attempting the final exam. All this can be done at home before you arrive, leaving you more time to enjoy your holiday! We suggest allowing 6 to 10 hours to complete everything. 



Doing the PADI Open Water course in Nusa Penida can be life changing and may make you feel like you've achieved a significant life goal; it could lead to a brand-new addiction! We will not be held responsible if you start traveling for diving or come back to see us for some more! Or you might want to jump straight away into your PADI Advanced course :)
