Our Sydney-based Openwater scuba diving program combines online theory with practical pool and ocean dives. The course aims to train you for scuba diving up to 20 meters deep, leading to the globally recognized Openwater Scuba Diver certification.

Before the course begins, participants must complete 3-4 hours of online theory, followed by a theoretical exam. A swimming competency test is also required, including a 200-meter swim and 10-minute water tread, with no time limit and using any style. The initial practical diving skills are taught and practiced in a pool in Sydney.

The course progresses with four open water dives in the stunning Sydney ocean. These sessions reinforce pool-learned skills and introduce additional techniques, ensuring your proficiency as an Open Water scuba diver. After completing all theoretical and practical elements, your instructor will validate your log book and student record file, certifying you as a Scuba Diver. This certification is internationally recognized.

Participants must be fit for diving to enroll in the Openwater Course in Sydney, and a diving medical examination may be required.

Our aim is always to offer our divers a safe and enjoyable experience. Below are reviews from customers who left use feedback on their experience.
Rodrigo was incredibly patient with me, despite my lack of skills and anxiety underwater. His teaching methods were exceptional! The other team members were also fantastic, which greatly helped my learning process. I started the course terrified of water but ended up falling in love with the ocean—so much so that I even signed up for the advanced diving course! For those seeking an enriching experience with nature while challenging your comfort zones, this is the perfect opportunity. In just three days of the open water course, I learned SO MUCH—both physically and mentally. I look forward exploring the ocean & discovering more about myself & the ocean on future diving trips with Prodive ☺️🩵 by Ratu Nida - 03-May-2024
Very happy with the trainer, Ralph Federer by Elliot Johnston - 26-Apr-2024
Ralf was excellent - Very knowledgeable and patient and was always taking the time to teach us how to scuba dive safely and show us how to do everything correctly. by Penelope Castle - 12-Apr-2024
Bruno Pedreira was an outstanding instructor, a big thank you to him for aiding me in overcoming my concerns of claustrophobia and not being able to breath ! The whole experience was an incredible one. From registration to the celebratory BBQ, the team members went above and beyond to make the learners feel at ease and comfortable. Bruno was an outstanding instructor, he was able to take a novice, such as myself and aid me with the confidence and skills I needed to feel comfortable diving. I went from fearing being claustrophobic to feeling liberated under water. The complexity of the assembling and use of the equipment was taught in a relatable and memorable way. Safety was paramount and we learnt how to dive to ensure our safety as well as help those around us. A big thank you to the team. by Lara Gudmanz - 12-Apr-2024
The boys were all lovely and helpful and made everyone feel very comfortable and safe. They were energetic and fun and made us not only learn but have a good time as well. by Ivy Swibel - 12-Apr-2024
