Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, the dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.

Why PADI Open Water?
As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world, 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, check with your instructor to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water program.

What do I need to start?
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. You must be older than the age of 14 to begin the PADI Open Water Diver program. For those of you who are not above the age of 14 and would like to participate in the PADI Open Water Diver Program, then the PADI Jr Open Water Diver program is available to you. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.

* A PADI Jr Open Water Diver between the ages of 10 and 11 years may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.

What will I do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.

How long will it take?
PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

What will I need?
* PADI Open Water Crew-Pak
* PADI Open Water Video or DVD
* Log Book

Eaglehawk Dive Centre (EDC) is a PADI 5 Star dive centre that started operating in 1991. All the owners (Mick Baron, Karen Gowlett-Holmes, Gary Myors and David Perkins) are experienced local divers with over 100 years combined diving experience.

It is situated on the spectacular Tasman Peninsula, 80 km from Hobart - Tasmania's capital - and 45 minutes from the airport.

Our operation caters for all requirements of the visiting scuba diver. Our services include boat dives, accommodation, air fills, gear hire, courses, dive shop, and much more.

Most of our dive sites are accessible only by boat. Shore diving is limited due to the extremely rugged and very photogenic coastline with cliffs towering from sea level to 1000 feet.

The EDC is an Accredited Tourism Business by the Tourism Council Tasmania.
