Scuba diving courses in Prague

Welcome to Kapr Divers - PADI 5Star Dive Center!

Although full information about our courses, trips and other scuba diving activities on this web site are in Czech language, we offer a full range of our services in English too. Kapr Divers is the most active diving club in Prague offering diving education for beginners, experienced divers, technical divers and scuba instructors.

Learning to dive is one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Earning your PADI certification will forever change the way you see the world, both above and below the surface. The first step is to enroll in the basic level scuba course – PADI Open Water Diver. During the course, you’ll learn what you need to know to explore the underwater world using scuba.

Course details ↓

The PADI Open Water Diver course includes three parts: Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water Dives.

  • Knowledge Development covers the principles, concepts and terms you need to know for dive safety and enjoyment. All students get their own student manual for independent home study. Once you finish the book, there are academic lessons with the instructor. The final part of knowledge development is a written exam.
  • During the Confined Water Dives, you learn and practice scuba skills in a pool or water with pool-like conditions. Swimming pool lessons are conducted in the pool at Agricultural university in Prague Suchdol from October until the end of June. In summer months, we usually teach scuba diving in the outdoor pool in Mělník or Kralupy nad Vltavou.
  • To complete training you practice, apply and demonstrate what you learn during four Open Water Dives at a local dive site of lakes or quarries in Czech (usually weekend) or Austrian lakes or as a part of the trip to the sea according to our plan of scuba trips. Your instructor always provides detail information.

Course Prerequisites:

  • 12 years or older (we also offer special scuba diving program for kids from 8 years)
  • Able to swim
  • Medically fit for diving

Earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification shows that you met the course requirements. Dive centers and resorts require proof of certification before they will rent scuba equipment, fill scuba cylinders or book dive excursions. As a PADI Open Water Diver, you’ll be trained to a maximum depth of 18 metres/60 feet, and are qualified to dive in conditions as good as, or better than, those in which you trained. It’s just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures.

Continuing education↓

Your Open Water Diver Certification introduced you to a world of adventure and discovery, and made you keenly aware that you’ve only just scratched the surface of the underwater world. PADI continuing education courses are designed to advance your scuba skills and give you the added confidence to keep doing what you love. Visit PADI web page to see full range of courses.
