Los Cristianos PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Course

If you'd like to learn how to scuba dive, we'll see you on the Los Cristianos promenade for our PADI Open Water scuba diving course. Our course will last either 2 or 3 days, depending on the group, and include 1 dive in a pool and 4 open water dives.

Day 1: Theory and practice in confined water

On the first day of the course, we'll meet at 9:30 am and begin learning all the theory we need to master. We'll learn the function of each piece of diving equipment, how to communicate underwater and some basic safety regulations. At the end of the lesson, we'll take a short test to check that we've understood everything we need to know.

It'll then be time to put theory into practice. We'll dive into a pool and begin familiarising ourselves with the activity. We'll learn how to set up our equipment, empty the mask and control our buoyancy. Our first day of lessons will finish between 3 pm and 4 pm.

Days 2 and 3: Dives in open water

On the second and third day of the course, we'll reconvene at 9:30 am. Accompanied by an instructor, we'll learn how to swim in open water until we become independent divers. We'll do a total of 4 dives and reach a depth of 60 feet (18 metres).

While we dive, we'll also be able to admire South Tenerife's incredible marine flora and fauna. You'll then receive your well-deserved PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Certification between 4 pm and 6 pm on the final day of the course.
