3 Days Open Water Courses

from Aqaba

3 Days

Scuba Diving


You have always dreamed of diving in clear waters to see the ecosystem of the Red Sea. Unfortunately, you do not have certification. This three-day PADI open water course will allow you to explore this wonderful underwater world and provide you with the certification to dive up to 18m (60ft) on all over the planet!

Experience Highlights:


  • Get your certification with the PADI Open Water Course
  • Be able to dive up to 18 meters (60 feet) all over the world
  • Explore the Red Sea Environment
  • Dive into the Hercule C130 as the reward for your efforts
  • Celebrate your certification with a barbecue and cold drinks
  • Have access to a private beach in Aqaba

After breakfast on the first day, you will be introduced to your diving instructor who will accompany you all along the way. 


Each PADI Open Water Course has three components, which is theory, confined water sessions (usually pool, or shallow water in the sea) and open water dives. These components can be scheduled in a different way as long as the instructor follows the PADI standards.


When the course is coming to an end, you will do two dives in a real situation up to 18 meters. This time you can explore some of Aqaba’s most interesting dive sites, such as the Hercule C130, or the famous Tank of the Aqaba Gulf. On the last day’s afternoon, you’ll have to pass the final exam. But no worries, as the required minimum age is 10, it should be easy for you!


Then you’ll be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver.


In the evening we will meet to enjoy a barbecue and cold drinks!
