Open Water Diver Course & Referrals

The PADI Open Water Diver course is by far the most popular dive program in the world! This certification is globally accepted and does never expire. If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure, and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. It is your ticket to a lifetime of marine adventure!

The online class covers all required course academics including the course exam, saving you more than a day of classroom lectures here with us. The PADI eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics, and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress as well as review and correct anything you might have missed. You move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.


  • Check-in is 60 minutes before the activity
  • Courses are being offered daily with never more than four students per instructor
  • The Open Water Diver course is available as a full class or as a referral program
  • Our course is based on students taking an online class prior to coming here for the in-water training session, which can be scheduled over the course of 2 full days or three half days


  • When booking this course, please make sure you have enough time to work through the required online training (1 full day approx.) as we will not be able to commence your in-water training without the course academics being done
  • You must be 10 years or older
  • For PADI Referrals we do require the respective student record and course progress form to be filled out, signed, and dated by the initial instructor
  • Please note that the last course activity must have been within 12 months or else you have to start the course over. If your pool session has been a while we strongly encourage you to book an additional pool review session prior to the open water training dives to help you get back “into the groove”
  • For Non-PADI Referrals, we do require the International or Global Referral form properly filled out, signed, and dated by the initial instructor, no older than 12 months

Cancellation Policy

  • The general cancellation policy is 24 hours (48 hours for groups >6 people). If you cancel any part of your reservation within 24 hours (48 hours for groups) of the respective check-in time, you arrive late or you do not show, we will retain your payment in full
  • You will receive a full refund for any payments you made if you cancel outside of 24 hours before the confirmed check-in time
  • We issue a full refund for payments you made for dive/snorkel charters if we or the boat operator cancel a charter trip because of inclement weather or rough seas
  • If the Captain aborts a two-location charter trip after the first dive/snorkel location because the weather/sea conditions deteriorate during the charter, you will receive a 50% refund of your respective payment for that trip. Please note that light to moderate rain showers and scattered thunderstorms in the weather forecast rarely lead to a cancellation of a dive/snorkel charter
  • If you are participating in a scuba course and we cannot finish portions of your course as scheduled due to unforeseen events (e.g. quick changes in weather/sea conditions, boat issues, instructor illness, etc), you have the choice to either reschedule the remaining portions of your scuba course or to receive a partial refund for the non-conducted course portions
  • Students are responsible to pay for any training session they participated in, including pool training
  • There are no refunds for seasickness, for dives you do not choose to do during a charter or a course, or if you “did not like the conditions”. There are also no refunds if you cannot pass a medical questionnaire or if you cannot provide medical clearance for a booked scuba course at the time of check-in
  • There are no refunds if we have to end a student’s class early due to a lack of swimming ability or other inaptitude or if a student decides to end the course early
  • Purchases of gift certificates, gift cards, online courses, and payments for unused rental gear/air fills are non-refundable
