Having completed the academics and all the pool skills at your local dive center at home, referral students only need 4 open water dives to become certified divers. There’s no better place to complete your PADI certification than in the warm waters of the Caribbean.

You will be administered the PADI Certification Check Out Dives 1 and 2 OR 3 and 4. The tests are done off the beach, near the dive shop. You will only be allowed to do one set of tests per day. We can schedule your second set in your other ports to complete your certification.

All equipment will be furnished. Paperwork will be sent to PADI upon successful completion. If you are completing your certification with dives 3 and 4, then you will need to pay an additional $25 directly to the dive shop, for the processing envelope, if you do not have one.
