If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating may be the right choice for you. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification if that’s your ultimate goal. You will do some theory, and spend some time practicing scuba skills in confined water, and 2 open water dives. This is the first half of the Open Water Course. Once you have completed the course you will be able to dive with a dive professional to a maximum depth of 12m/40 ft. The best part is that since this is the first half of the Open Water Course whenever you are ready and have the time you can do the rest of the course and upgrade to full Open Water Diver.
