Open Water Certification




At Dive Paradise this course includes a minimum of 4 open water dives over a 2-3 day period. Normal class hours are approximately 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.  Most students complete the program as safe, confident divers in just 2-3 days!

We provide all of the equipment needed except for the required student kit (text and materials), which you can purchase from us if you don’t already own them. We provide other support materials such as quizzes and exams free of charge. 

Following payment, our reservations team will be in touch to schedule dates and coordinate equipment rental.

PADI E-Learning

To get a head start, consider enrolling in PADI’s Open Water Diver online e-learning course.  This online preparatory course is supplemental to our $364 course price option and does not replace your in-person Instructor in Cozumel, though it can speed up your on-island classroom time and get you in the water faster!

For SSI pricing, please inquire.


  • Marine Park Fee (per day, if boat diving) $4.50
