PADI Courses

Open Water Course

SCUBA diving is great fun and is a fantastic way to discover the diversity of the amazing underwater world. The PADI Open Water Dive Course enables you to enjoy the diving environment as a trained and safe diver.

Dive courses can be moulded to fit even the busiest of schedules: you could spread your course over a number of evenings, weekends or even consider taking the home-study option. On completion of your course you will graduate with an internationally recognised Open Water Dive qualification that will enable you to dive anywhere in the world.


Course overview:

The course is divided into 3 segments:
1. Classroom sessions
2. Pool sessions
3. Open Water

Learn to Dive in 2 weekends. You can complete your entire dive course over 2 consecutive weekends.

Otherwise we offer evening classes. The classroom and pool sessions are normally held twice a week on Monday or Tuesday and Wednesday or Thursday evenings from 7pm to 9:30pm. We also run day courses during the school holidays.


Why should I dive with Auckland Scuba?

  • We want you to enjoy your diving experience so you’ll come to love diving as we do.
  • Our instructors are passionate about diving and will ensure that your first underwater experience will be a fun and safe experience.
  • We have regular dive trips (up to 5 trips a week) throughout the year from our own boat (not charters). We believe that once you've learnt to dive, you'll want to carry on so why not learn with a centre that actually gets out diving?!
  • We have a best price guarantee. If you find a better price for the same equipment, we'll match it.
  • We offer our students extra sessions if required so that you are comfortable before going out into the ocean (addtional fees may apply).
  • We have a high standard of well maintained equipment in our school including computers.
