The course is a full certification course. If you want to do more than just a single day of diving and you want to know how to dive with other divers along the famous Puerto Morelos National Reef Park, or in other locations around the world then becoming certified is a must. You will learn all the basics of diving and start building on that essential knowledge base and skill set. You will receive training both in a swimming pool and in the open water. You will learn about the science of diving as well as dive equipment, planning, safety and execution. Traditionally a four to five day course, it is broken down into modules, some of which can be completed before you leave home . Your training is recorded in your training logbook where you can also record you future dive experiences.
Coursework: the preferred method is to sign up for a PADI online course that will take you step by step through the theory of diving. Knowledge reviews are completed after each chapter and a multi-choice exam completes the 5-6 hour coursework. We recommend that students do the online work just before embarking on the next phase of the course so that the information stays fresh.
Pool training: Provides you with a safe and controlled environment to learn and practice the basic dive skills. This portion can also be conducted through a dive shop in your home country or our Marina La Bonita instructor.
Open water dives: The dive sites at Puerto Morelos National Reef Park are a great place to do the 4 open-water training dives that complete the PADI Open Water course. Skills are honed both on the surface and underwater. You will dive to a maximum of 60ft and your instructor will provide plenty of feedback and time to practice.
The next level of training after the Open Water course is the PADI Advanced Open Water course. This provides the opportunity to investigate different disciplines of diving and includes 2 core dives and 3 elective dives. One of the two mandatory dives builds on the basic underwater navigation you learned in the Open Water course, the other exposes you to a deep dive beyond 100ft. Coursework accompanies the practical portion of the training and also includes an exam.
Choose from a variety of elective dives including drift dive, wreck, night dive, and photography.
