Scuba Certification Overview

Do you love the ocean and want to spend your free time exploring the reefs and marine life? If your answer is a big yes, the Scuba Diver Certification is just what you need if you want to make scuba diving a hobby. This course is a subset of the Open Water Diver course which is fitting for folks who are keen to become a certified diver but have limited time on their hands to pursue a full Open Water Diving course.

This newest entry level of scuba diving certification from PADI or SSI is divided into 3 days of scuba instruction wherein you will learn important basic diving skills from our divemaster.

The course is comprised of 3 parts:
1. Knowledge Development - Learn the basic principles of scuba diving in the classroom
2. Confined Water Dives - Acquire basic scuba skills by practicing in the pool
3. Open Water Dives - Go on 2 ocean dives so you can apply your skills and explore your surroundings

You can fulfill the requirements of the course in 3 consecutive days but it is also possible to take the remaining sessions on a later date as long as it is within 1 year of the first one. Please coordinate with us so we can arrange the sessions at a time that is most convenient for you.

We foster a positive learning environment by running small classes (maximum of 4 students per PADI-certified or SSI-certified instructor) in order to give you the special attention that you deserve. After finishing the course, you will receive a globally-accepted diving license as proof that you're qualified to dive up to 40 feet (12 meters) under the supervision of a PADI or SSI professional.

Operation: Daily

Duration: 3-day course for 5 hours/day 

Requirements: At least 10 years old, in good physical health, and can swim

What to bring with you
We highly recommend that you bring any valid ID and comfortable swimwear with you on the day of the scuba lesson.

Dive location
We will take you on a boat dive to Cabo Bay where the water is calm and clear for you to practice the skills you've acquired. Alongside the bay's rocky cliffs is a sand chute where sand cascades down creating incredible falls which are awesome to see underwater. The wall goes down 300 feet with the larger of the two sandfalls starting at 100 feet.

What you can expect to see
Cabo Bay is home to a multitude of reef fishes so expect to encounter damsels, angelfish, tangs, parrotfish, pufferfish, trumpet fish, wrasse, and more. Isn't it wonderful to learn how to scuba while seeing these amazing creatures at the same time?
