If 12 meters depth is not enough for your scuba diver soul, the PADI Open Water Diver course in Lagos for beginners is the right one for you. On the magnificent and famous Algarve coast, you will learn the theory and practice of scuba diving in up to 18 meters depth. The crystal clear water that shines in all different shades of blue and the earthy steep cliffs that build underwater caves invite you to explore the Atlantic Ocean from an underwater perspective. A variety of colourful fish, as well as lobsters and octopuses, are waiting for you under the surface.

The PADI Open Water Diver is designed for beginners who want to get fascinated by the underwater world. The termination of this course enables you to engage in a lot of guided (boat) dives around the world together with a certified scuba diving instructor. The theory sessions will get finished at home via e-Learning. So on your holiday, you can focus on the most fun part of the course - scuba diving itself! What are you waiting for?

- Dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters/60 feet with a certified diving instructor

Recommendations for PADI Open Water Diver Course in Lagos for Beginners

It was an impeccable experience doing the PADI Open Water course with Lagos Divers! Everyone in the team- Nuno, Fernanda, Fabio and Melanie - was super attentive and went the extra mile accommodating my personal requests. They made sure the experience wasn't just about achieving the goal of certification but also having fun! In particular, my instructor Fabio was AWESOME, he had the super power of making you cheerfully (and safely of course!) take on seemingly scary exercises and perform to a standard you didn't even know you could. I definitely wouldn't have gotten my certificate without him! Kudos to everyone and looking forward to diving with them again!
