The PADI Open Water Dive Manual is an easy to read and follow step-by-step text book which is designed to give the student the fastest and safest system to completing an Open Water Dive Course. The Recreational Dive Planner Table (RDP) is in feet of water (imperial version) and informs the new diver of safe depth and time limitations for recreational diving. Everyone's favorite "blue log" is now printed in full color on non-smear recycled paper. Each course has dedicated pages: from Open Water Diver through MasterScuba Diver. Plus it includes a convenient equipment checklist.
