Hello ,


Thank you for your message. We congratulate you for your interest in taking the world's most popular scuba diving course - PADI Open Water Diver (OWD) course with us. After completing your training in 3-4 days, you will join the millions of certified divers who enjoy the pleasures of diving all around the world. Based on our 25+ years of experience in the Scuba Diving industry, we can guarantee that you will find this course to be the start of a very fulfilling new lifestyle... Please click here to watch a short introduction video about the Open Water Diver course. 


To enroll in a PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 14 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required. 


PADI Open Water Diver Course consists of 3 parts:


a) Theory - This is where you learn the basics of scuba diving by reading the digital eLearning materials, watching the Open Water Diver video and writing a final exam. Upon confirmation of your course reservation, we will assign an eLearning code to you and you will access your course manual from the system while still at home.  It would be best if you finish the knowledge reviews, quizzes and the final exam online before coming to Kas.


b) Confined Water Dives - There are 5 confined water sessions where your PADI instructor will teach you the basic scuba diving skills. Depending on logistics, you could complete these confined water sessions in our Diving Pool in our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center or in the sea (from our Dive Boat). Every week, we conduct confined water training in the Pool on Mondays and Thursdays. In the Pool environment, all 5 confined water sessions can be completed in 1 day (so the whole training can be finished in 3 days in total). In the boat environment, the confined water sessions take 2 days so the total duration of the course would be 4 days. 


c) Open Water Dives - You will complete 4 open water dives where you will be able to apply the skills that you have mastered in the confined water sessions and enjoy your time underwater in a safe and fun way. All of these Open Water dives are conducted in the sea environment from the Dive Boat. Regardless of where you have done the confined water sessions (in the pool or on the boat), the Open Water sessions are completed in two days on the boat. 


Course Price:

The price for the PADI Open Water course is 375 Euros + VAT per person. It includes the 3 sections as described above, plus the rental of all of the dive equipment you will be using during your course, boat rides, usage of the pool, all PADI eLearning materials and PADI Open Water Diver certification fee - no hidden costs! The only extra expenses will be the cold beverages or similar that you consume during the course (We do not serve lunch on board but we offer complimentary snacks - fruit, biscuits etc and hot tea). Also, although it is not mandatory, it is a universally accepted practice in the scuba world to give a small tip to the staff if you are satisfied with the quality of service you receive during your time with us. 



You will have a %10 discount for your further dives and courses for 1 year, upon completing your course.


We have diving packages if you want to continue diving to get some experience after your course. So, after the completion of your course, if you still have several spare days, you could do some fun dives as a certified diver and gain some experience :)


Our daily schedule is as follows: 


a) If you are doing your Confined Water training in the Pool (ie if you can start on a Monday or Thursday), we meet at the dive boat at 9am, then we take you to our dive center Pool where you are going to spend the whole day (usually until 5-6pm) there. The next two days you come to the Dive Boat and complete two Open Water dives each day - so the course will be completed in 3 days.


b) If you are going to complete the whole course on the Dive Boat, we meet at our dive boat at 9am every morning and leave at 9:30am for the first dive site; do the dives then move onto the second location. We will have at least 1 hour (sometimes more) waiting time in between the dives; then do the second dives and return to Kas around 2:30 - 3pm. In this case, the course takes 4 days.
