PADI Certification

Becoming a scuba diver is a wonderful adventure!



Scuba certification includes three phases:


Knowledge Development
During the first phase of your scuba lessons, you'll learn the basic principles of scuba diving such as

  • What to consider when planning dives.
  • How to choose the right scuba gear for you.
  • Underwater signals and other diving procedures.

    Confined Water Dives

    This is what it’s all about – diving. You'll develop basic scuba skills in a pool or in confined water – a body of water with pool-like conditions, such as off a calm beach. The basic scuba skills you learn during your certification course will help you become familiar with your scuba gear and become an underwater explorer. Some of the essential skills you learn include:

    • Setting up your scuba gear.
    • How to get water out of your mask.
    • Entering and exiting the water.
    • Buoyancy control.
    • Basic underwater navigation.
    • Safety procedures.
    You'll practice these skills with an instructor until you're comfortable. When you're ready, it's time for your underwater adventure to begin at an open water dive site.
      Open Water Dives
      • After your confined water dives, you'll head to open water. On these dives you'll get to explore the underwater world.

        You'll apply the skills you learned in confined water
        while enjoying what the local environment has to offer in Negril, Jamaica.
