We are happy to announce that Deepspot ( was recognized by PADI as the open water site. This allows PADI Professionals to conduct open water dives from all level of courses in Deepspot. It is still to Instructor discretion to choose which dives they choose to perform in Deepspot.

This decision was made after detailed process of reviews and assessments made over several months. Review process included:

Evaluation of the facility and its features
Comparison of training quality and outcome between Deepspot and other open water sites
Reviewing PADI Instructors training activity in Deepspot using existing standards for artificial indoor dive sites
Field testing and simulations of the open water training dives for different levels of PADI

This process assured that conducting open water portion of PADI courses can be made in Deepspot without compromising quality of training and safety.
