PADI Referral Program and Open Water E-Learning







With PADI E-Learning , you can complete the classroom portion of the Open Water diver course online prior to your arrival. This gets all of the reading, videos and exams completed and then we just work on the water skills once you arrive. Typically in as little as two days of training and students are certified and ready to dive on our daily trips. For Instructions on signing up with PADI’s E learning program please click here.

Completing a referral program with your local dive center also gives you a head start on your diving vacation. The referral program means you complete the classroom and pool work of the open water course at another dive center (i.e. your local dive center at home) before your arrival. That way, all you need to do in Roatan is to complete four training dives with one of our Instructors and you are certified and ready to join us on our daily trips.

Minimum age: 10 years
Duration: 2 days
Max depth: 18m/60ft
E-Learning: $300 per person (inc. equipment)
Referral: $280 per person (inc. equipment)


"I am a risk taker while my husband is more conservative and our instructor did an incredible job of balancing what worked for both of us. We will go back again for sure!"
