The Open Water Diver Course is the most popular PADI scuba lesson offered at Aqua-Nuts Diving.
This course is your ticket to the exciting adventure of the underwater world. The course covers simple academic principles and emphasizes actual diving experiences starting in the shallows of a local lake, and then progressing to the deeper more challenging parts of the lake.
This course can be accomplished in 2 or 3 days depending on where you choose to complete your Open Water Testing.
Summer Pick a lake and camp for the 3 days. Or take it one day at a time. A fun-filled Alberta summer experience!

Upon completion of The Open Water course a diver will be able to dive with the following limitations:
Confined Water Training will cover the skills you need to pass your Open Water Testing. During this training, you will learn how the equipment works, how to use it and maintain scuba equipment. You will be shown skills that will help you to stay comfortable, be safe, and have fun. This class will also teach you how to avoid emergencies and what to do if presented with one.
All this will strengthen your confidence in your newfound skills!
Open Water Testing will start with a nice, fun dive! Just to help you get your “sea legs/lake legs” and to demonstrate what you learned in the confined water portion. For the remaining 3 dives you will get to "show off” what you learned in confined water! No big deal, just a lot of fun!
Then, Congratulations, you are a Scuba Diver!
