The PADI Open Water Diver course is THE classic course for diving initiation. Here, our team will teach you all the basics, will assist you in confined and open water dives, and will show you some of Chania's most beautiful diving sites. Participating in and finishing this course means you'll be one step closer to being an autonomous diver, so pack your swimsuit and get ready for your first of many underwater adventures!
Goal of the course
The PADI Open Water Diver consists of theory lessons, 4 confined water dives and 4 open water dives. With the PADI Open Water certificate, you'll be able to dive up to 18m with another certified diver, meaning your partner doesn't even have to be an instructor: if you have friends or family who are certified divers, you can just go explore some sites with them - the waters of the entire world is your playground!
Meeting & Preparation
We meet at our diving centre, at the scheduled time. As we're integrated into the Christina hotel, you'll see our business sign at the front entrance but don't worry - we're easy to find. We also offer a pick-up service from various places around Chania (if you'd like to use this service, please contact us once your booking is completed).
Once at the centre, you'll be asked to fill out some paperwork for the upcoming activity. As this course is also focused on knowledge development, you'll have theory lessons in our classroom. If you've already dived before, you may skip some of the theory lessons and/or even confined water dives.
- Day 1: Theory lessons + 2 confined water dives
- Day 2: Theory lessons + 1 confined water dive + 1 open water dive
- Day 3: Theory lessons + 1 confined water dive + 1 open water dive
- Day 4: Theory lessons + 2 open water dives

Had an amazing time, great instructors who were full of knowledge. They really put safety first but also made sure it was fun and that you were enjoying the course.
Great instructor and super nice people. Need to go to 18m though.
