Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. 

All student divers complete a brief scuba medical questionnaire that asks about medical conditions that could be a problem while diving. If none of these apply, sign the form and you’re ready to start. If any of these apply to you, your doctor must, as a safety precaution, assess the condition as it relates to diving and sign a medical form that confirms you’re fit to dive. Download the scuba medical questionnaire.

Testimonials

★★★★★

I got scuba lessons for my nephew for his birthday, and we just completed our open water (certification) dive yesterday. Fantastic experience. The classes were great, and the in-pool sessions helpful for practice - but the thing that impressed me most was the people and the sense of community.

Rob and the team are great people who teach and help. I think this sport can be gear-snobish and technical - but they were so down to earth, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you learn and have a good experience.

Would definitely recommend to anyone. It was a great activity for us to do together, and we'll be back for more dives!

My wife and I obtained our Open Water certification last summer / fall with Rob and his team. They were uniformly patient, supportive and capable instructors. As we are currently preparing for our first dive vacation, the staff at Oakville Divers have continued to offer support, advice and assistance. We have attended the "drop in" practice pool sessions and the dive masters are always prepared to provide gentle reminders and guidance. Highly recommended!!
