Full description
The PADI Open Water Diver course is an entry-level scuba diving course. The certification is recognized worldwide and valid for life, to a maximum depth of 18 meters / 60 feet.

The course begins with one of our PADI Instructor taking you through the basics of scuba diving. You will start in a pool or pool-like conditions and progress to Playa Del Carmen Reef. This is a fantastic place for your first four open water dives.

Many other dive companies try to rush you through your course as fast as they can. This will never happen with this course - "The instructor will spend as much time with you as it takes to make you comfortable underwater"
