Open Water

Open Water Referral Program

Open Water Referral (Check Out) Dives are a great opportunity for those who would rather do their Open Water certification dives in the warm, clear Caribbean waters. You complete your entire academic and confined water training at home with your local dive shop, they issue you a "referral form" and then you come to Grand Cayman to do your 4 open water dives. These dives are usually done over 2 days (2 dives per day) with the first day from shore and the second day diving from a boat or shore allowing you both experiences. We offer both PADI and Universal Referral Program referrals.

Open Water with E- Learning  

To maximize yoru time your diving on island, the E - Learning class allows you to complete all lectures, videos, quizzes and exams at home, on your time schedule. Then you print out the exams results and you are then ready to start your pool sessions and Open Water Dives (4). Upon checking at the Dive Shop you will complete some paperwork, do a quick review and start the practical portion of the class. The Open Water Certification can be completed in three days (weather and performance permitting).

Full Certification Class     

This Open Water class involves doing lectures, quizzes, exams and watching videos in our classroom. Then we complete the Pool sessions and Open water Dives on site, under the supervision of the Dive Instructor. This format can take four to five days.

Upon completing all the portions of the class succesfully, the final certification will be processed and the newly certified diver will take a Temproary Card that will allow her/him to dive anywhere.

The Open Water Classes include full use of the equipment during the duration of the class.
