Welcome to the PADI Open Water Course. The first step into recreational diving and your license to the underwater world.


What is the PADI open water course?


It is the course that enables you to start your journey into the underwater world. The course will take you to the most incredible places, and fill you with the most incredible experiences – if you let it. The idea behind the course is to teach you about the underwater environment and give you the knowledge / training that goes with it, to make you a competent diver. With a wide range of scenarios starting from out of air situation to the use of dive computers.


Why do your open water in Cape Town?


in Cape Town, False Bay, we have a wide range of environmental factors that will prepare you for diving anywhere in the world. Learning in our colder temperatures will help you understand the importance of proper weighting and Buoyancy as we use thicker wetsuits than you would normally in warmer climates. You will also have access to great instructors as we have also been put through the test of our sometimes-harsh weather conditions, giving you the highest level of training that you deserve.


Why do your PADI Open Water Course at Cape Town Dive Centre?


Here at our little dive centre we have an amazing team starting at PADI Divemaster going all the way to PADI IDC Staff instructors. It is a great environment to be involved we are more like a family and we are always looking for more people to join the family of Cape Town Dive Centre. We also have a full gear room, with all the gear in great condition, which is checked regularly. An on-site pool and an ocean with many dive sites to choose from on our doorstep, in Cape Town False bay.

But in the end of the day there is no better time to start diving than now, so if your ever in the neighbourhood, and if you have any questions come by for a coffee and a chat. We’d love to see you, and look forward to diving with you.
