This is how we roll:

Usually the PADI Open Water Course (Level 1) takes about 3 - 4 full days if you study all required theory here in El Nido. In these days students are not only busy with diving but also with watching 5 videos, reading the PADI OW manual and doing the final exam.


Sounds too much for a vacation? Well, it takes only 2 relaxed days of training and diving if you prepare all theory at home before visting El Nido. Thats PADI eLearning.

PADI eLearning takes around 12 hours in total. You can split it into several sessions, pause and continue any time. Also your final exam is online.


That time you will safe here to enjoy the lifestyle of El Nido: go kayaking, do inland trips, have sunset drinks...simply a good time.
