Open Water Diver à la carte with your PADI instructor

Description :


If you've ever wanted to go scuba diving, experience an unparalleled adventure and discover the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course - the most popular and widely recognized scuba diving course in the world. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive through this course and continue to discover the wonders of the aquatic world.




To register for a PADI Open Water Diver (or Junior Open Water Diver) course, you must be at least 10 years old. You must know how to swim and be in good physical health. No prior diving experience is necessary.


Academic content:


The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

1. Development of theoretical knowledge to understand the basic principles of scuba diving (independent study then in the classroom with me or online via E-Learning).

2. 3 to 4 dives in a protected environment to learn basic diving techniques.

3. 4 dives in a natural environment to practice and rehearse your diving techniques and explore! (at sea, it's better and cheaper).


You can earn university credits for the Open Water Diver course.


The Open Water Diver course requires approximately 30 hours of lessons!


This includes:

- A personal educational kit or access to E-Learning.

- 5 theory modules (3 x 3 hours) (if no E-Learning).

- The final exam.

- 5 pool modules spread over 3 to 4 pool sessions (equipment and pool included).

- 4 lake dives over two days (for example, a weekend from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.).

- PADI Open Water international E-certification.


There are three options for obtaining Open Water:


1. Do the complete Open Water in Switzerland with a diving instructor.

2. Do the theory modules and the swimming pool modules in Switzerland, then go on a trip with me to complete the natural environment part at sea. In this case, there is a discount on the Open Water course.

3. Make a Referral, which simply means that I will provide you with a transfer sheet with all the pool exercises and the passed exam! You can use this sheet in all PADI centers around the world. (Price depending on the modules completed). (Valid for 1 year)


Depending on our schedule, you will be with other students or alone with me.

Before you begin, do a quick review of your open water. Circle the questions where you have doubts and we will look together. The solutions are on the last page.


Description :


The Advanced Open Water Diver course aims to improve your knowledge of the environment in which you will dive. You will have the opportunity to practice underwater orientation and try deep diving. Plus, you'll be able to choose three specialty dives from a variety of options.


Each completed specialty dive will earn you credit toward PADI Specialty Diver certifications.


Here are some of the many options available: Deep Diver, Dive Against Debris, Dry Suit, Enriched Air Nitrox, Fish Identification, Night, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Navigation and Wreck Diver.


I suggest you take the practical course during a cruise.


This includes :

- The educational kit

- PADI Advanced Open Water certification

- The practical course during the trip

- Theory in Switzerland, with 2 sessions of 2 hours each, without exam.


You will hardly notice any difference between a week of vacation without lessons and a week with lessons. After a week on the boat, whether you have taken the course or not, the only difference will be the lack of theory, given the experience gained during that week.


The course includes 5 themed dives, which we will spread over several days so as not to "endure" the course throughout the week.


There are two mandatory chapters:

1. Deep Dive

2. Navigation (orientation)


Then you can choose from three other themes, such as:

1. Night diving

2. Wreck diving

3. Drift diving

Enriched Air (Nitrox)

Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. As you breathe less nitrogen, you can enjoy longer dives and shorter surface intervals. It's no wonder that the Enriched Air Diver is PADI's most popular Specialty.



Online learning makes it easy to fit diving courses into a busy schedule. Complete the knowledge development portion of your course at a time and place that suits you.

Work at your own pace, online or offline, on desktop or a mobile device. Connect with your Instructor when you have a question or to plan your in-water training.

Once you have completed your independent study, you will learn how to analyze a tank's enriched air mixture, complete a fill log, and set up your enriched air dive computer.

There are two optional dives.

  • Prerequisites: PADI Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification)

Charter & Environment

• Diving is not a "sustainable ecological" hobby but during each immersion we seek to avoid the unnecessary waste of resources by limiting, for example, unnecessary travel and reducing the amount of waste.

• To protect the environment but above all the future of our lakes & oceans we are committed to picking up the waste we see during each dive.

• Out of respect for the habitat & the legitimate inhabitants of the marine environment, we do not touch anything and leave nothing behind.
