First Open Water Referral Dive


Amigos Del Mar offers the Open Water Referral in Cabo San Lucas. We love to introduce folks to the Sea we love.  You can complete your open water referral in a stunning location that offers an incredible variety of marine life in a safe underwater environment.  What better way to start out your scuba diving adventure!

Think of this process sort of like Drivers Ed in the United States.  You do your classroom and pool sessions in the United States and then we finish your certification, essentially the road test part of your license, down here in the amazing Sea of Cortez.

The Open Water Referral is a standard part of the Amigos Del Mar SCUBA diving Instruction program here in Sea of Cortez, so we really understand that our goal is to make your first dives in the Ocean comfortable, enjoyable and safe.  You will be assigned a PADI dive instructor that will oversee your open water referral from start to finish.

We view this process as the beginning of your lifetime of diving adventures as a certified SCUBA diver and we go to extra length to make the process safe, seamless and, most of all, fun.

We are a Universal Referral Location!! All you need to do is bring an open water referral letter from the instructor of any recognized SCUBA diving certifying agency and dedicate two days of your vacation to completing the four dives!
