of the most well known recreational diving associations based on
continuous education programs for all diving levels.
The choices for learning go from “snorkeling” (free diving), “Open Water Diver”, “Advanced”, and “Specialties” to professional certifications like “Divemaster”, “Instructor Assistant”, “Entry Level Instructor” and “Open Water Instructor”. We are willing to create divers who are comfortable and prepared to dive in the real world no matter the training level chosen.
The SSI, PADI o ACUC teaching systems include manuals, self study guides, videos, teaching profiles and other support materials. The teaching method is supported by multimedia, lectures and practice. This learning system is natural and has proved a highly effective methodology.
¿How to start diving ?
There are two complementary initiation levels that can be achieved separately or together which are designed for people who want to enjoy the greatness of the sea.
The first one si called SCUBA DIVER and it takes at least 2 days in which you will develop two theoretical modules and at least 4 open water practices. Once you have achieved your certification you are able to dive down to 36 feet and you have to be supervised by at least one Divemaster. You should not forget that this is the only certification that expires after one year. During this year the diver can take the remaining modules in order to obtain the next certification. .
The price for these modules is $ 300 plus certification fee.
The second certification is the OPEN WATER DIVER and it takes at least 4 days and has 5 theoretical modules and 8 to 10 sea dives, along with as many pool practices as needed. The first modules are the same as for the SCUBA DIVER, that is why if a Scuba Diver decides to become an Open Water Diver only needs to take the remaining modules. This certification does not expire and enables you to dive down to 54 feet with a partner who has to be at least Open Water Diver.
The price for this course is $ 500 plus U$ 20 of certification fee.
Scuba Diver course is part of the Open Water Diver course. It
is the first step into diving for people with time restrictions and for
those who are interested in group diving supervised and guided by a
divemaster, assistant instructor or certified instructor.
Scuba Divers can continue their training any time in order to certificate as Open Water Diver by completing the required Theoretical Modules, Confined Water Dives and Open Water Dives .
You do not need any previous certification to take this course.

new divers the basic knowledge and necessary techniques for diving with a
