Expand your knowledge and become a fully certified diver!
Are you already certified as a PADI Scuba Diver, jump in and upgrade to the PADI Open Water Course today!
The certification is recognized internationally and valid for life. The course will take you through a series of two theory sessions, two confined water sessions, and two open water dives.
At the end of the course, you will be certified to dive with another certified diver, to a maximum depth of 18m/60ft. During the two open water dives you will see some of the most diverse marine life and aquatic plants the Caribbean reef has to offer.
The water is warm and crystal clear. The reef is full of life, colors, and fun. Join us making bubbles under the waves!.
Learning to be self-reliant is what the solo-diver course teaches. It makes you a better buddy too, and the prerequisite is more than 100 logged dives (and then taught only at the instructor’s discretion). No newbie open-water divers should ever dive alone,” Michael says.
