PADI E-Learning Open Water

Steps and Hints

Your Discover Adventure Voyages starts with your PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) E-learning course Open Water Diver Course. We want you to complete this knowledge development sessions of the course BEFORE you arrive (can we make this flashing?) . There will be many distractions from the island atmosphere that can make the reading and study of the course easier if you complete it at home. You can start today.

These classroom sessions will teach you about scuba diving principles and terminology whenever, wherever it's convenient for you. It's your course on your time. Study offline, or online using a computer or mobile device. Connect with your Odyssey instructor whenever you have a question. There are are five Knowledge Reviews, four Quizzes and One Final Exam.
eLearning time commitment: 5-10 hours.

We will finish your PADI Open Water certification with your instructor using scuba gear in a pool-like environment until you're comfortable and includes practice "mini dives" to help you build confidence in your new abilities before making four dives in open water.

Who was Poseiden? And how does a seahorse relate to part of the brain?

Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian deities of the pantheon in Greek mythology. His main domain is the ocean, and he is called the "God of the Sea". He was associated with dolphins and three-pronged fish spears (tridents). He lived in a palace on the ocean floor, made of coral and gems. In Greek art, Poseidon rides a chariot that was pulled by a Seahorse (genus hipocampus- comes from the Ancient Greek hippos meaning "horse" and kampos meaning "sea monster"). The hippocampus is a major component of the brains of humans and other vertebrates. It belongs to the limbic system and plays important roles in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory and spatial navigation and its shape looks a lot like the seahorse.
