The PADI Open Water Course commences in the classroom where students learn about diving equipment, planning for safe diving, communication underwater, helping their buddy, etc. These informal lessons are aided by audio-visual presentations. Students then practise their skills with shallow confined dives. Fortunately, Malta’s sheltered bays allow our students to enjoy their initial diving experience in the sea itself. Students then graduate to the open sea around Malta and her sister islands.

Please note that a medical declaration form must be completed for all scuba diving activities. If you have a medical condition and require an examination by a doctor in Malta then there is an additional charge for this which must be paid locally to the dive centre before you start diving.
