OPEN WATER DIVER The world's most popular scuba diving course

The PADI Open Water Diver course with DIVE KAWARTHA

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

 

The Fun Part  

Open Water Divers On Boat

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

 

The Dive Kawartha Difference

Your crew on both land and water makes the difference between great dive experiences and all the other ones.   We are located in the heart of the beautiful Kawartha Lakes, and with our cottage country personal DK Differencetouch, we strive to give each and every customer the highest level of attention and service possible from the minute they arrive at the dive center, until they head back home.

Why?   It's simple, because we want you to be excited about diving as we are.  We want you to be excited to come back and dive with us, and we want you to be excited about recommending us to your friends!

We care alot about our local lakes environment, and we want you to care too.   With that in mind, we don’t only teach you to dive, but also how to protect our lakes, and the oceans and reefs.   As a value add to this course you also get a Project AWARE specialty diver certification free with every new diver.  The Project Aware course focuses on aquatic conservation and prepares you to join millions of divers around the world on conservation and research initiatives and start your journey towards becoming a true "Ambassadiver" and also counts towards your Master Scuba Diver rating!
