PADI Open Water Diver Certification


Scuba diving is a thrilling and rewarding activity that allows you to explore the underwater world. Congratulations, you've made an exciting and bold move. Welcome to our scuba school. 

While learning and earning your PADI Open Water Diver lessons with Eco Dive Center, you'll cover essential skills such as equipment use, underwater communication, safety procedures, and buoyancy control.

The courses are designed to progress from beginner to more advanced levels, allowing you to gain confidence and experience as you go.

You'll learn how to navigate your way through a whole new environment (underwater!), and how to do so safely with excitement. You will master the basic fundamentals then build upon them gradually so you don't feel rushed. 

Instead, you'll feel confident and comfortable with your new knowledge of dive etiquette and skills. 

Be prepared to laugh and smile a lot. Don't be surprised if you come away absolutely thrilled -- scuba diving does that to people.

Our Promise & Guarantee:  We guarantee to give you the most adventurous and educational scuba experience possible. When you complete your training with us, you will be a confident and well-trained diver ready to explore the underwater world. We're dedicated to educating divers and protecting the aquatic environment--so besides the basics, you will also be taught buoyancy skills and fish identification to aid you in becoming a more knowledgeable and steward of the ocean.
