Want to become a diver but don´t want to spend your precious holiday time studying? PADI has solved the problem!

PADI's E-Learning allows you to complete all the theory aspect of the PADI Open Water course at your own pace from the comfort of your home or mobile device. Then you can enjoy doing the practical part of the course in the warm Mediterranean over 3 - 4 days.

Virtually anyone who is in good health*, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certificate. Participants will need to be able to swim 200 meters (no time limits) and tread water for 10 minutes.

*If you’re uncertain about your health in relation to qualifying to dive look at the PADI Medical Statement. You can download a full outline of the course on Kenna Eco Diving Resources page too. You will need to bring a medical statement from your GP to say that you are fit to dive.

Just writing to let you know that Matthew and Daniel received their PADI Cards last week. Many thanks for all your encouragement with the boys as I'm sure it all helped towards them passing. They were both delighted to see the cards arrive in the post to show their pals. Hopefully we'll get back to L'Escala at some time in the next year or so and I'm sure we'll be in contact with you then. In the meantime, hope all is well with you and give Ray our best. Regards, Mary.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course builds experience and understanding of diving, and is designed to be taken directly after completion of the Open Water course. The term "Advanced" is often misinterpreted, as this course is simply advanced training for Open Water divers.
