Want to explore the underwater world and become a part of the scuba family but are short on time, or like the idea of getting some experience in the water while being supervised by a dive professional? Then the PADI Scuba Diver certification is for you!
Effectively it is the first half of the Open Water Diver certification. This internationally recognized certification is valid for life and will allow you to dive worldwide, to depths of up to 12 meters / 40 feet, accompanied by a dive professional.
The PADI Scuba Diver Course consists of 3 phases of skill development; Knowledge Development, Confined Water Training and Open Water Training Dives. Upon successful completion of all 3 phases, you will earn the PADI Scuba Diver certification.
Your first morning will be spent watching the PADI Scuba Diver video which will introduce you to the basics of diver safety, the underwater environment, the equipment you will use and the skills you will learn during the course.
You will then spend the afternoon completing the Confined Water Training where you learn and master the skills you need to become a safe and confident diver. This is done in our dive pool, where you will progress step by step. Your Instructor will demonstrate the skills and work with you until you have mastered them and feel truly comfortable underwater.
The following day, you will spend the morning working through the PADI Manual, completing the Knowledge Reviews and Quizzes before heading out in the afternoon to complete 2 Open Water Training Dives with your Instructor.
During these dives, you put the skills you have learned into practice, demonstrating your abilities as a safe Scuba Diver and of course exploring the underwater world of the Caribbean Reefs.
Diving in some of the most crystal clear waters of the world, you can expect to see a wide variety of marine life and corals. Angel Fish, Butterfly Fish, Barracudas, Stingrays, Crabs, Turtles and much more are all usual visitors on our local reefs!
With a maximum of 4 students per Instructor in our groups, you can be certain you will receive personal attention and training, enjoying every moment of your journey to becoming a PADI Scuba Diver and joining the scuba family!
The perfect way to get started and you can upgrade to the full Open Water Diver certification whenever you are ready.
