Diving Malaysia Courses

PADI OPEN WATER DIVER

Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive programme in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, the dive association that sets the standards in the global diving community. Why not learn to dive in Malaysia!

PADI Open Water Diver Course with Dive The World Malaysia

Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You will also earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification that is recognised worldwide. You earn this diving license by completing five sessions in a diving pool, five knowledge development sessions and by making four dives (plus one extra dive, free of charge, just for fun) at some of the best Malaysia diving sites.

As a certified PADI Open Water Diver you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. If you already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, you may get credit from these courses to the open water programme. Your underwater adventure can begin as soon as today with the PADI Open Water Diver video! You can view this at your own pace and then meet with one of our instructors for further assistance.

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. At some point during your Malaysia scuba diving course, your PADI Instructor will ask you to demonstrate the ability to swim 200 metres and, on the first morning, complete a bit of paperwork to get you on your way.

The PADI Open Water Diver license is a permanent scuba qualification. However, if you do not dive for over 12 months and you are a relatively an inexperienced diver, then we recommend you complete a refresher programme, such as the PADI Scuba Review. This can take as little as one hour of your time in the dive pool and gives you the chance to refresh those diving skills you may have forgotten. That way, when you go scuba diving again you can relax and enjoy your dives, and be sure that you won't have any nasty surprises in store.
