Open Water Diver Course

The SDI or PADI Open Water Course is the most successful and most popular beginner course worldwide for recreational diving. You will learn about equipment, basic dive theory and the necessary techniques and skills to dive safely.  We recommend that you complete the theory through PADI or SDI eLearning online so that you can study in the comfort of your home at your own pace.  You can do this before you get to Mexico so that you don’t cut into your vacation time doing homework.

The first time you enter the water will be in the comfort and safety of our pool or shallow water dive site. This will enable you to familiarize yourself with the equipment and practice the skills and techniques necessary for going out into the ocean or open water cenote.  After we are done with the shallow dives we are ready for the open water. The water here is clear, calm, shallow and perfect for your first open water experience. The dives will usually be conducted on the beautiful Caribbean reefs offshore from Playa del Carmen, Tulum, or Akumal, allowing you to see the diving in the Mexican Caribbean. You may also complete a few of your dives in Casa Cenote or Cenote Jardin del Eden, giving you an opportunity to witness the type of dive sites that are very unique to this area.  Your open water dives will give you an understanding of why the Cenotes and reefs of the Yucatan Peninsula  make this an important vacation destination for divers worldwide.

This certification will enable you to dive with a buddy, anywhere in the world, to a maximum depth of 60ft/18m.    After you are done with Open Water, you will be ready to participate in the Advanced Open Water Diver course.

diver Course pricing includes all learning materials, certification fees, park entrance fees, snacks, water, and diving equipment.
