The Dive Shack’s Genuine PADI Open Water Course
Our courses are run over 3 days. There is an introductory session in our on site custom built classroom on a Friday night before the course, this is where any questions you have can be nutted out, answered and the instructor can enhance your understanding of the diving basics. The following day is your confined water training conducted in a pool where you practice your diving skills until competent.
The second weekend is all your open water dives. The Dive Shack is one of the only stores in Adelaide that includes 5 open water dives, in our course which leaves you more competent and cable to dive upon the completion of your course. We also include 2 boat dives which abide by the Australian standards for the Open Water dive course where at least 1 of the dives needs to reach a depth greater than 14m, which in our waters is only achievable by boat.
