Detailed Scuba Dive Class Itinerary

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

• Knowledge Development (online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
• Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
• Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!

You may be able to get college credit for the Open Water Diver course.

PADI eLearning Open Water Diver Course Overview

You will learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD) and a tank. Though we cannot guarantee certification, we will work with students as long as possible (and as long as your stay in Cozumel permits!). An optional shallow boat dive is available on graduation day to facilitate the advancement from student to diver.

PADI eLearning and Open Water Touch

Other options include the PADI eLearning program (Open Water Diver Online – requires internet connection) or the tablet option (Open Water Diver Touch – does not require internet connection once downloaded).

These interactive courses cover the academic portions of becoming an Open Water Diver. This is a great match for an active schedule. You will have convenient access to all knowledge development course materials for one year. You will read and complete each of five sections of the manual online, watching corresponding video clips along the way and completing the final exam online. This means that once you arrive, all you will need to complete are all of the required training dives. **You would need to print off and bring your certificate of completion which you will receive when you finish the coursework and pass the exam portion of whichever interactive training program you choose.
