PADI Open Water
The PADI Open Water Course is probably known as “the PADI” to most newcomers to diving. It is the most frequently taught diving course in the world. The Open Water is the first certification in a line of PADI courses that we offer on the East Coast of the UAE. At Freestyle Divers, Fujairah we have a team of experienced and safety conscious instructors to take you through the course. PADI’s courses are the most recognized and accepted certification cards within the industry and furthermore, your entry ticket to the underwater world.
This PADI course is taught through a mix of independent study online (PADI e-Learning), skill practice in the pool and practical application in the open water dives. Your Open Water dives take place in the picturesque surrounds of Fujairah where we have the only Marine Protected Area in the UAE.
