The Padi Ocean Safety Diver course is designed for new divers, particularly those that qualified in a lake or a quarry. Experienced divers who have very little ocean diving time will also benefit from this course.
Even if you qualified in the ocean, this course will take your safety awareness and comfort level to the next stage.
We are professional dive educators. Auston has been teaching for over 25 years and Terry, our lead Instructor, has over 2,000 registered students with Padi.
Study Manual - This will take around you 2 hours or so and we will email this to you. This builds on your previous diving safety studies covered in OW and/or AOW.
Open Water Dives - 2 boat dives in 1 day. We usually start around 8.15am and finish by 2pm. Dive time is limited by your normal air consumption and your NDL. You spend a small part of each dive practising some new skills.
Dive computer - We use a dive computer during this course.
Pony bottle - You will be introduced to the concept of secondary air supplies during this course.
Timing- The course moves at your pace. The purpose is to build upon the safety skills you bring from Open Water, improve both your knowledge and skills and introduce you to concepts that are not covered in an OW course.
Standards - This is an "experience" course. The intention is to make you a much more "safety conscious diver".
