How to Get PADI Open Water Certified in Cancun ?

Are you ready to dive into the vibrant underwater world of Cancun? At Seatizen Divers, we offer a comprehensive PADI Open Water Diver certification that equips you with the skills and knowledge to explore the depths safely. Here’s a detailed guide on how to get PADI Open Water certified with us in Cancun.

The Three Mandatory Parts of the PADI Open Water Certification

1. Completing the PADI Theory – eLearning

The first step to becoming a certified diver is completing the PADI theory. With Seatizen Divers, you can do this conveniently through eLearning. This allows you to study at your own pace, from the comfort of your home, before you even set foot in Cancun. The eLearning module covers essential diving principles, safety protocols, and practical skills that you’ll need to know.

2. Practicing Skills in Confined Water

Once you’ve completed the theory, it’s time to get hands-on. The next phase involves practicing diving skills in confined water, which in our case is a swimming pool. Under the guidance of our experienced instructors, you’ll learn and practice essential skills such as buoyancy control, underwater communication, and emergency procedures. This controlled environment ensures that you build confidence and competence before heading into open water.

3. Four Open Water Dives

The final step in your certification journey involves four open water dives. These dives are split into two sessions:

Two dives at a maximum depth of 12 meters (40 feet)

Two dives at a maximum depth of 18 meters (60 feet)

During these dives, you’ll apply the skills you’ve learned in real-world conditions under the supervision of our certified instructors. Cancun’s crystal-clear waters and vibrant marine life provide the perfect backdrop for this exciting phase of your training.

Flexible Course Options to Suit Your Schedule

At Seatizen Divers, we understand that flexibility is key. That’s why we offer various options to organize your course. You can choose to complete the full course with us in Cancun, or you can split the course according to your convenience.

Complete the Full Course in Cancun

One option is to complete all three parts of the certification—eLearning, confined water training, and open water dives—right here in Cancun. This immersive experience allows you to focus entirely on your training while enjoying the stunning surroundings.

Split the Course

Alternatively, you can choose to split the course. Some people prefer to complete the confined water training closer to home and then do the four open water dives during their holidays. This option offers several benefits:

Flexibility: Complete the pool training at a time and place that suits you.

Enjoyment: Make the most of your holiday by diving in a beautiful location like Cancun.

Efficiency: Save time and start diving as soon as you arrive at your destination.
