OVERVIEW

Short vacation but you can still become a diver!

This course is an intermediate step towards the open water certification, designed for those people who expect to go scuba diving primarily with a diving guide, for anyone who thinks the open water course will take too long or will require too much of a commitment.

This subset of the open water certification, allows you to dive only under the direct supervision of a professional to a maximum depth of 40 feet/12 meters.

What to Expect

A “warm up” option to start your scuba diving journey

As for the PADI open water, this certification is divided into 3 main steps: independent study, pool training and open water dives.

You still have to affiliate to the elearning Open Water program but only 3 of 5 sections of the open water course are required at this level. Consequently, pool training will be shorter and open water dives will be 2 instead of 4.

The PADI Scuba Diver Certification requires less training time and gives you a more general idea about scuba diving.

You can upgrade to the PADI open water standard anytime in the future whenever you will feel ready for it.


The certification process

You get started by registering for the eLearning Open Water. Once the first 3 chapters are completed you will be ready for the confined water training.

On day 1 we will meet at the dive center here in Sayulita where you will be fitted for equipment and taken to our local pool.

We will need a couple of hours to go through the required skills and to prepare you for your 2 open water dives on the following day.

On day 2 you will be driven to our boat in Punta de Mita. After a short boat ride, we will reach the diving location where you will complete the last steps of your certification.


Topping the day off with lunch back in Sayulita

Diving requires some energy so a good lunch at our favorite local restaurant will be waiting for you at the end of your dives.
