PADI Scuba Diver course

with Mayacharters Academy

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.

PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
  • Purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.
  • Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.

MAYACHARTERS will take you there safely, and with professionalism. We will head to the marina where you will be able to have some coffee and fresh fruit.

PADI eLearning

This course requires you to study the theory online. This way you don’t loose any precious time of your holiday. If you don’t finish it, we won’t be able to start in water training!

Please register eLearning on the PADI page. You can complete the eLearning session at your convenience but before you come to us.

In water training

Once we get you registration we will contact you via email about scheduling your in water training. You can choose between group training (max 4 people) or VIP training (you decide when and how many). According to your choice we will bill you on site.

3x Pool, 2x Open-Water Dives (max. 12m): $ 250.00 / person

3x Pool, 2x VIP Open-Water Dives (max. 12m): $ 450.00 / person

What to expect

Before we can dive, we will go through any questions you have from the eLearning part you did before hand. Then we will collect our gear and do the pool sessions. Finally you will be ready to go diving. We will take the dive boat to reach a good practice spot, gear up and start the open water dives.
