PADI Open Water Diver

We are proud to offer one of the best scuba diving courses in Hong Kong; we have plenty of space and time in the pool to develop diving skills; a great open water experience on a traditional Chinese teak junk and our class sizes are small to ensure you get personal attention. All tuition is with an experienced English-speaking PADI Instructor, however our international instructor team can teach in many languages.


This is generally the first step in becoming a certified diver with the world's largest training agency. The PADI Open Water Diver Course is a fun interesting way to learn to how to scuba dive. Anyone from the age of 10 who is reasonably fit, in good health and is comfortable in the water can take this course.


The course consists of 5 confined water lessons (training in a swimming pool), 4 open water dives (in or around Sai Kung) and basic diving theory-which you will complete in your own home. The recommended course duration is approximately 30 hours in total, though as it is performance based will depend upon your progress. If you need an additional pool session or an additional day in the sea you get it at no additional cost to you. The course is flexible and can be tailored to your schedule and specific needs. The Open Water certification allows you to rent equipment and dive worldwide.

The PADI Open Water Diver course can be configured in a number of ways. We typically conduct our courses over two weekends, completing the theory and confined water lessons one weekend and the Open Water dives on the second.

On weekdays, it may even be possible to complete the in-water training in as little as two days if you have taken the eLearning course in advance. Either way the course is performance based so you will progress at a pace that is comfortable for you.


Whether you’re on the go or want to take it slow, you will complete the knowledge development portion of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course online with PADI eLearning. It’s a great match for your active schedule and you can complete this from the comfort of your own home or anywhere in the world while you are on the go.

The course fee is HK$5,400 and includes eLearning, all equipment rental and processing of your PADI certification card (no hidden extras!).
