Once you arrive at Liquid you will be shown to your room, either a standard or deluxe cottage depending on your booking. The PADI open water course will either start the day you arrive or the following morning and is spread over 3-4 days, with half the day being in the classroom and the other half in the water. A typical day will start around 8am and finish around 5pm, with a nice lengthy lunch break in the middle.
The classroom sessions include watching a PADI video, answering some knowledge review questions and then taking a short multiple choice exam. The confined water sessions involve conducting a number of underwater skills each one demonstrated by your instructor first.
The open water dives are where you practice the skills and knowledge acquired through both classroom and confined water sessions, all the while being monitored by your instructor.
This Philippines beginners scuba diving holiday in Dumaguete has rather quick learning curve. By the end of your final dive you will be a confident PADI OWD (open water diver) ready to go and explore more of the underwater world
