Open Water Certification - $445 - $520

This is the foundation for all scuba activities. Once certified with a PADI Open Water Certification, you are recognized internationally as a certified diver. The course includes theory (we offer two options, with a manual and with e-learning), five confined water sessions (completed one morning) and four open water dives (complete in two afternoons). The cost of the full open water course with a manual is $445usd ($415 if you buy and read your own manual before you arrive) per person. If you get a manual from us, you can expect to spend a day reading and to have quizzes and an exam in the evening.

E-Learning is a service PADI offers so you can complete all the knowledge development sections, quizzes, and tests online using PADI's website, before coming down here to complete the confined water skills sessions and 4 open water dives with us. This is nice because you don't have to study here on vacation. We charge $520 for this Open Water course with E-Learning.
