If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. A Referral course starts you out with the classroom and pool work of your certification. Then, while on your trip down south you can complete yor ocean dives in tropical waters.

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by your TORPEDO RAYS Instructor to ensure your comfort throughout the course.
