Open Water Certification
At Dive Paradise this course includes a minimum of 5 open water dives over a 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 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.
As celebration of your graduation, we offer an optional shallow boat dive (at no additional charge) to help you make the leap from student to diver. Though we cannot guarantee certification, we will work with problem students as long as possible (and your stay in Cozumel permits!).
Following payment, our reservations team will be in touch to schedule dates and coordinate equipment rental.
To get a head start, consider enrolling in PADI’s Open Water Diver online e-learning course. This online preparatory course is supplemental and does not replace your in-person Instructor in Cozumel or offset the regular Dive Paradise course fee, though it can speed up your on-island classroom time and get you in the water faster!
