What is PADI Scuba Diver?

PADI Scuba Diver is the first half of the PADI Open Water course. It qualifies you to dive to 12m with a professional guide, and can be upgraded at any time to the full PADI Open Water certification (by taking the 2 day upgrade course).

Why do PADI Scuba Diver?

Most people jump in to scuba diving with the full PADI Open Water course, but not everyone:

  • If you’re short on time, or want to learn at a slower pace, it’s great to be able to do your course in 2 steps
  • Junior Divers (10-14 yrs) also love Scuba Diver because it splits the theory in half!

Whenever you’re ready, you can do the 2nd half of the course and upgrade to the full PADI Open Water qualification – at any time, with any PADI Dive Center worldwide.


  • PADI Junior Scuba Diver: 10-14 years
  • PADI Scuba Diver: from 15 years
  • Good fitness and comfortable in the water

Get started now with PADI eLearning

If you’re short on time, consider PADI eLearning. It costs a bit more, but it gets all the ‘homework’ out of the way before your holiday 🙂

PADI eLearning is also excellent for junior divers, as it integrates reading with video and interactive quizzes, and makes dive theory a lot more visual and fun!



PADI Scuba Diver is 2-3 days. Content is the same, the 3 day course just takes place at a slower rate (for example, less evening homework or more time explaining theory for junior divers). Here's the 2 day version:

Day 1
  • Check-in, meet your instructor and complete necessary paperwork. Any diver under 18 years will need a parent or guardian with them (or we can email paperwork in advance)
  • Theory
  • Fitting equipment
  • Lunch
  • Dive briefing
  • Confined water skills
  • Dive de-briefing
  • Theory - with some evening homework
Day 2
  • Theory
  • Dive briefing
  • Confined water skills / Open Water dive
  • Dive de-briefing
  • Lunch
  • Dive briefing
  • Open Water dive
  • De-briefing
  • Celebrate your PADI Scuba Diver certification!
