NEW Open Water Diver Touch!!
Have your Open Water manual on your IPAD or Android Tablet rather than a paper manual, a great way to complete self study before arriving on island!

PADI continues to lead the way in diver education with the launch of the next evolution in the PADI Open Water Diver experience: the revolutionary PADI Open Water Diver Touch. An industry first, the Touch fuses state-of-the-art technology with proven PADI instructional design to deliver the excitement and experience of learning to scuba dive to your iOS and Android tablets.The Touch is a tablet version of the manual integrating the PADI Open Water Diver manual curriculum, learning objectives, video clips, quizzes and Knowledge Reviews and exam into a rich, interactive learning environment. Since the Touch is a tablet-based application, no internet connectivity is required to view course content. So, you can conveniently access the Knowledge Development portion of the course at any time from any location…hotel, plane, home, pool side or beach!

If you complete all the Knowledge Reviews, Quizzes & Final exam before arrival you will just need to complete the pool training and four dives with an instructor therefore the cost will be the same as our eLearning option (see below)

Just inform our sales team when you make your booking if you want to do the Open Water Touch Option.
