The PADI Open Water Diver Course is, by far, the world’s most popular scuba certification course. Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development (facts, principles, concepts) and motor procedures (skills, techniques, methods).
The PADI Open Water eLearning Course provides the knowledge development portion you need all from the comfort of your home online. You develop the remaining skills by doing all of the in-water training at Ambergris Divers with our PADI Instructors in Ambergris Caye, Belize.
