The PADI Open Water Course. Your first course in becoming a fully certified diver. Taking approximately 3 days, your course consists of three components - theory, confined water and open water. 

During your theory we want to make things as easy for you as possible. We get it, you're on holiday! The last thing anyone wants to do is study. So therefore we try to offer you with different options in how you'd prefer to complete your theory work. You can either use E-Learning. An 'at home' self study web based program which allows you to study in your own country at your own pace. Otherwise you might like to relax in the comfort of our shop in front of one of our flat screen televisions and comfortable sofas. The instructors will be on hand to help with any questions. 

Next your confined water sessions will be in the comfort of our swimming pool where you will learn all the skills of Open Water diving. 

Once complete your instructor will take you on 4 dives over 2 days to our beautiful reefs in Playa Del Carmen and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.

Your advanced course consists of 5 dives and is set between 2-3 days depending on the diving you would like to experience. 

Perhaps you'd like to try cavern diving in one of our beautiful Cenotes. Maybe a dive on our local ship wreck or even see the reef come to life on a night dive.
