Can’t decide whether to get your scuba certification while on holiday or at home before you travel? With the PADI or SSI Open Water Diver referral course, you don’t have to choose!
A PADI or SSI Open Water Diver referral course allows you to complete most of your scuba training at home – then, finish your certification dives anywhere in the world. This means you can support your local dive shop and avoid studying during your vacation at the same time. Now, let’s get into the details.
With an open water diver referral course you will complete some or all of the two phases (knowledge development and confined water) before leaving home.
You can finish the final part of your scuba course, the open water dives, aka ‘check out dives’, now at Ocean Encounters in Curaçao.
To put it another way, instead of spending 4-5 days of your holiday studying and practicing skills in a pool, you’ll arrive with the majority of your open water course done. The final portion of the course typically takes a day and a half to complete.
Once certified, you can spend the rest of your time exploring the beautiful underwater world of Curaçao with your dive buddy to gain additional dive experience.
