Exmouth Diving Centre: 3 day PADI Open Water Course
The Ningaloo Reef is an incredible location to beging your scuba diving adventures! The PADI Open Water Diver course conducted by Exmouth Diving Centre is taught over three days, and includes one day learning skills in the pool before spending two days finishing your training on the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef! You'll enjoy four dives off of one of our boats in the tropical waters of the Ningaloo Reef, where you can see hard and soft coral and many of the hundreds of fish species found on the Ningaloo Reef.
Upon completion of the course, you will hold a PADI Open Water Diver qualification, which is the entry level qualification from the worlds largest scuba certifying body. The Open Water qualification allows you to dive anywhere in the world, with a certified buddy, to a maximum depth of 18m.
Exmouth Diving Centre has been introducing divers to the underwater playground of Ningaloo Reef for over 20 years. We dive almost every day of the year and have an intimate knowledge of the many dive sites we visit on the Ningaloo Reef (many of our staff even dive with us on their days off for fun!).
We pride ourselves on the confidence and quality of the divers certified at Exmouth Diving Centre! Our Instructors experienced, thorough and will cater to the requirements and learning styles of all divers.

Dive Medical Clearance:
A dive medical may be required if you have certain pre-existing medical conditions. A medical questionaire is supplied at the time of booking, and a positive response to certain queation will require a dive medical (this is for your own safety). If a dive medical is required it must be completed prior to arrival as dive medicals are NOT available in Exmouth. Expense of having a dive medical is the responsibility of the diver being examined. Exmouth Diving Centre does not conduct, organise, or take payment for dive medicals. We are, however, happy to provide a list of medical practitioners who conduct dive medicals.
