Open Water Certification Course


Culebra, PR


You come prepared by completing the course material at home via online eLearning and let us take care of the rest. After completing your studies we will teach you the in-water portions of your dive training in Culebra. We ask for four (4) days to complete your training.  We strongly suggest you expand your trip at least one day beyond the initial training days to allow extra time to complete your course in case of unexpected weather conditions.  While it is possible to complete your certification in a minimum of 3 days we ask that you allow extra time with us to ensure success. Our minimum age to participate in Open Water training with Culebra Divers is twelve (12).

This price paid to Culebra Divers includes your Confined Water and Open Water Training, all necessary gear, and your certification card processing fee. The eLearning fees are paid directly to PADI during online studies registration, and are subject to change ($217 as of May 2023). Instructor gratuity for outstanding service is always appreciated and can be handed directly to your boat crew, paid via Venmo, or discreetly given to the shop staff.

You will be asked to choose four (4) days for your training.  If you don't see the dates you want, please contact us

Please note: Although you may opt to take the eLearning portion of the course in any language you wish, all in-water instructional sessions will be conducted in English**

Getting Here

Please keep in mind before booking: The flights from Culebra to the main island are low altitude flights; however, the experts at DAN still recommend 12 hours after a single dive and at least 18 hours after multiple dives or multiple days of diving.

For this reason and to avoid schedule conflicts impacting your tour (or that of others on the boat), we ask that you not book flights or the ferry immediately post the tour.  Exact return times are not guaranteed.
