PADI Open Water Diver Course

The most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense diving adventure.
Throughout the 5-chapter course, you will learn the fundamentals of scuba diving in 3 days.

Each day is comfortably balanced with class sessions for knowledge development and exams, as well as 5 sessions of confined water  for skills practices.

The Open Water Rating is completed with 4 open water certifying reef dives to colorful and breathtaking dive sites along the Belize Barrier Reef, maximizing your experience and enjoyment with Ambergris Caye’s marine life.

Complete dives 1 & 2 in shallower dive sites along the reef, easier for mastering the set of skills required while enjoying full color and marine life interaction.

Dives 3 & 4 are completed during dive trip type settings, at dive sites on the fore-reef. This option is perfect if you are vacationing with already certified divers, as they will want to join you on at least these last two dives.

This course earns you a Full Lifetime Dive Certification.

For those ages 10 to 14, Ambergris Divers offers the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course, and for those ages 10 & 11, we also offer the PADI Junior Open Water Certification Course, allowing you to only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent, or certified guardian to a maximum depth of 40 feet.  If you become inactive for a period of 2+ years, you need only to take the Refresher Course to keep within the PADI Safety Standards.
