Open Water Referral Dives


Culebra, PR


You did all your classroom work and exams during the cold winter at home and all your confined water practice in a swimming pool. Now you want to come to the warm, crystal clear waters of Culebra to finish your training? We are ready for you!

You will need to email us your referral information to us as soon as you are done training; no less than 1 week prior to your arrival. You will also bring that same referral paperwork, bring your logbook, and fill out a new medical form.

Did you do your initial training with SDI or SSI? No problem! Our dive professionals are cross-trained across several agencies.

You will be asked to choose two (2) 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

This price paid to Culebra Divers includes your Open Water training dives, all necessary gear, and your certification card processing fee.  Instructor gratuity for outstanding service are always appreciated and can be handed directly to your boat crew or discreetly given to the shop staff.

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.
