Dive Isla Mujeres without being Dive Certified? But how? PADI's Discover Scuba is the doorway to the underwater world.
You don't have to be dive certified to Dive Isla Mujeres! With Aqua Adventures you will learn the basics from the PADI Open Water course including a few skills in shallow water. 2 DIVES! We take you diving at Isla Mujere's MUSA, the underwater museum, and Manchones Reef,ideal for Discover Scuba. We train open water students at these sites, pretty reefs, fishy, in the Mexican National Marine Park. We see lobster, rays, turtles and of course reef fish on these dives.
You will be taught by PADI professionals and your dive leader will be one of our PADI instructors. A portion of your fees will be credited to the cost of the open water class if you decided to get certified and you will get credit for one open water training dive.
PADI Scuba Diver Certification is a subset of the Open Water Course. Upon completion you receive a certification that restricts you to diving with a PADI professional ( Divemaster, Asst. Instructor or Instructor ) and to a maximum 40 ft. depth.
It includes Theory chapters 1-3, Confined water modules 1-3, and 2 Open Water Dives. It can be completed in 2 days. Upgrade to Open Water any time with confined modules 4,5 and Open Water dives 3 and 4.
The complete course takes approximately 11 hours. You can complete it in two days. Scuba Diver certification can be a fall back if conditions don't allow us to complete the full Open Water Class.
When you complete the PADI Open Water class, you will receive the PADI Open Water certification card. You become a PADI Open Water diver. You can rent dive gear from your local shop, and sign up for dives to 60 ft/20meters at dive resorts worldwide. The complete course takes approximately 16 hours. You can complete it in three days.
The theory or academic portion is self study in the open water manual with classroom review and testing. This portion can be done online at home with PADI eLearning, Open Water iPad or Android. We teach the confined water portion in water 4 to 15 feet deep.
You learn the skills you need to become on Open Water diver during the 5 confined water modules. Then we're off for the 4 open water dives typically done in 2 afternoons. During these dives you repeat your confined water skills and become comfortable diving!
4 dives over 2 days, PADI standards do not permit more than 3 training dives in a day. We work with you to design a class schedule to meet your needs. The three course segments don't have to be completed in sequence, we have some ability to interleave them if needed.
Complete the PADI Academic portion of the course at home on your own time. Replaces the manual and video you would otherwise complete in a classroom at home or here on the island.
Doing eLearning before coming to the island will reduce your self study and class time here on the island by approximately 8 to 12 hours.
