This is a Warm Water / Referral Out Course - You will need to complete your check out dives with another shop while on vacation.

Sign up for the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular of all scuba dive training courses as an entry to another world.

The full Open Water Diver comes in three segments.  The Open Water Referral Course will cover the first two.

A PADI referral allows you to complete most of your scuba training at home and finish your certification dives anywhere in the world. Avoid studying during your vacation and support your local dive shop at the same time

You can finish the final part of your scuba course, the open water dives (aka “check out dives”), anywhere in the world.

To put it another way, instead of spending 4-5 days on your holiday studying and practicing skills in a pool, you’ll arrive with the majority of your open water course done. The final portion of the course typically takes a day and a half to complete. Once certified, you can spend the rest of your time exploring with your dive buddy and gaining additional dive experience.

  • E-Learning (10-20 hours)
