The earth is approximately 30% land. Care to find out what happens in the other 70%?

Specializing in customized courses for small groups, The Submersibles is here to help you take your first giant stride underwater. There, you'll be able to discover the aquatic environment through the PADI Open Water Diver course: the world’s most popular and widely recognized scuba course. You will learn dive theory and practical skills such as buoyancy control, basic (and rarely needed) emergency procedures and general diving skills. Upon course completion, not only will you be a qualified and competent diver, but also someone who knows how to have fun under pressure (The Submersibles ’tagline!).



  1. Minimum age of 15 years old (or 10 years for Junior OWD). For youths aged 15 and below, the presence of one or both of their parents/guardians during the course is strongly recommended.

  2. In reasonably good physical and mental health.

  3. Ability to swim 200m continuously (without stopping) and float 10min on the surface of water without any aid/assistance.

  4. Keen interest to have lots of fun!


Course Syllabus:

Dive Theory Online: Learn the basics of diving at your own pace through PADI's E-learning. A total estimated time of 15 hours is required, including completion of all quizzes and the theory exam


Pool Training: Now is the time to put the theory you have learnt to good use! The practical training in a swimming pool environment prepares you for the grand finale: the open water dives.


Open Water Training: The real thing begins! Here, we reinforced the skills picked up during the pool session in open water, eventually certifying you as an Open Water Diver, the gateway to endless fun and exploration.

*Note that there will be a re-scheduling fee of S$60 per person per session in the event that you have to make any changes to any lessons after confirmation of schedule.

**There will be additional charges for additional pool lessons for any students who are unable to fulfil performance requirement in the scheduled pool session. Charges is S$ 150 per session (one to one), S$ 100 per session (two in class)
