PADI Open Water Course – Learn to Dive


Become a certified diver in as little as 2 days!

Did you know that 70% of the earth is underwater? Learning to dive will introduce you to a whole new world! As a diver you’ll interact with marine life, make new friends, and open yourself up to new adventures.

This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure.

Why become a certified diver?

Diving in Perth Western Australia is easily accessible for all levels of divers. Our shore line has everything from easy beach entries to see lionfish and seahorses, to deeper shipwreck for the more experienced diver (link to diving in perth info page)

Once you’re a certified Open Water Diver you can dive to 18m deep anywhere in the world, with a diving buddy. You’ll become part of the Dolphin Scuba Dive Team and have an open invitation to all our diving events, including our Free Sunday Morning Shore Dive every week.

What will the course involve?

Learning to dive is easy! It’s made up of three parts:

  • Theory
    • You do most of this from the comfort of your own home, reading the manual and watching the DVD before your course days.
  • Pool Sessions
    • You will begin with diving in a heated pool, starting with the basics like how to set up your equipment and becoming comfortable breathing underwater.  We will work at your pace and build on your skills as we go.
  • Ocean Dives
    • For the Learn to Dive Course you will complete 4 ocean dives. This is your opportunity to practice the skills you learned in the pool, and start to do a bit of exploring on the ocean floor in depths of 12m-18m deep.
