Description

Be on your way to get certified as a diver

Your scuba diving courses take place at the Dreams Beach Resort in Puerto Aventuras, an exclusive community near Playa del Carmen. PADI-certified instructors will take you through every step to help you gain the prestigious PADI certification. Anyone aged 10 and older is welcome to train for open water diver courses, which include three segments:
  • Knowledge development with classroom and video seminars.
  • Confined water dives in a pool to learn basic skills.
  • Open water dives to demonstrate skills and earn certification.



Choose from different course options

Various scuba diving classes are available. Ages 10 and up can try 2- and 3-day certification courses with depths ranging from 40 to 60 feet. Tune-up courses are available for certified divers who are a little rusty. Open water referral courses are for those who have done instruction at home and need to finish with open water dives. Even ages 8 to 10 can experience scuba with a 1-hour Bubblemaker program in depths of 6 feet. No matter which program you choose, you’ll learn valuable scuba skills with these courses.
