Under PADI Standards you can do any part of a PADI course in one shop and finish up your course in another. If you did your Academic and/or Confined Water part of the Open Water Course in your hometown you can finish your Open Water dives with us in the crystal clear Caribbean waters of Roatan!
If you started your training with an organization other than PADI, we require an additional pool dive ($30) to assess your dive skills and a review of your diving knowledge. You will be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver.
