How long does it take to become a scuba diver?
You can typically gain your Open Water qualification in three to four days. This course involves elements of theoretical study, practice dives in a pool or pool-like environment, and four dives in open water.
What qualifications do you need to be a scuba diver?
To enroll in a PADI Scuba Diver course (or Junior Scuba Diver course), you must be 10 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, but you can try it first through the Discover Scuba® Diving program.
How much does it cost to learn how do you dive?
For beginners, it costs around $70 to $200 to do a single introductory dive with a guide and between $200 and $600 or more to do an open water diving course with a scuba instructor. Online courses are available to begin your scuba diving certification journey at your own pace and range from $0 to $200.
