Enroll in our scuba diving lessons to get your PADI Open Water certification. First you will receive the theoretical course, then you will practice in the safe environment of the pool and finally you will practice in the ocean. Once you receive your PADI license, you can keep scuba diving with Elemento Natural either in Costa Rica or in any of our destinations, like Belize or Bocas del Toro.
You will learn and review all the scuba diving equipment, how to set it up, test it and all the functionalities of each of its parts. Additionally, each student will review the official video from PADI to cover all the necessary content, to allow you to master all the basic principles of autonomous diving. Studying material is included. The course will be held in a convenient place to be defined for the group.
You will cover the 5 modules in at least 2 confined waters dives, in the pool, to learn and practice the basic diving techniques. All equipment will be available. Pool practice can be held in the Centrall Valley or at the beach, depending on the group´s availability. If the student masters the techniques quickly, one day of confined waters practice could suffice.
There will be 4 inmersions in the ocean, through two days of practice, to properly evaluate each one of the lessons of theory and pool practice. This weekend you will use your new skills but you will also explore the wonders of the sea. Equipment, diving boat, tanks, snaks and DAN insurance are included.
The pricing does not include the 2 nights lodging or the transportation to Hermosa Beach, where we will conduct the ocean inmersions.
