Academics

There are two ways to complete the academic portion of the PADI Open Water Certification Course. You can either pick up the manual and watch the open water videos here at the dive shop supervised by an instructor or you could do it online with PADI eLearning.

The PADI eLearning is designed to let you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace. The in-water portion of the course is an additional cost to PADI’s online course fee which is sold separately as an eLearning Open Water Completion Course

Confined Water (Pool Training)

Once you’re finished with the academics portion of the course, it’s time to move onto the confined water (pool training). Here your instructor will put into practice the techniques you’ve learned during the academics program.The confined water sessions are completed in the shallow sandy bays of one of our beautiful cayes.

Open Water Dives

Once the academic and confined water sessions are complete, it’s time to experience everything you’ve learned in 4  open water dives. These dives are done on our Local Barrier Reef Dives giving you a unique ability to explore Belize’s Barrier Reef at the same time.
