Under PADI Standards you can do any part of a PADI course in one shop and finish up your course in another.
If you did your Academic and/or Confined Water part of the Open Water Course in your hometown you can finish your Open Water dives with us in the crystal clear Caribbean water of Cozumel.
If you started your training with another organization other than PADI we require an additional pool dive ($ 30) to assess your dive skills and a review of your diving knowledge. You will be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver.
Or if you did a PADI Discover Scuba dive or a PADI Scuba Diver Course somewhere else you can do the missing part to become an Open Water Diver here.
