Doing your PADI Open Water Course - the initial step on the ladder in your diving adventure - in Playa Del Carmen will provide you with a diving experience that is far from what you would get anywhere else.
Each year many divers travel to the Riviera Maya to dive in the massive cave systems that once were sacred to the Mayans. And it is easy to understand why. Dropping into the crystal clear freshwater, you will find yourself floating through a silent world of "hallelujah". These dives are strictly done in the lightzone of the cenotes (cavern areas), meaning they are open for all level of divers. But regardless of your experience level, you should prepare yourself for an experience out of this world Seeing the light piercing through little holes in the cave ceilings getting bend in water with a visibility easily exceeding 50 meters, makes you feel like an astronaut lost in space.
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular diving certificate worldwide. After completing this 3-4 day course you are certified to dive to 18 m independently with a buddy. The PADI diving license is recognized worldwide.
The course consists of five modules of learning. You study via self-study workbook and complete a knowledge review. This process is assisted by videos accompanying each chapter to reinforce what you have learned. The instructor reviews everything with you to ensure that everything required are confidently understood.
The practical learning consists of pool sessions and four open water dives. Dive one and two are conducted at a depth of max 12 meters and dive three and four are conducted at max 18 meters. The final stage of the PADI Open Water course is an exam, which is a multiple choice exam covering all that you have learnt. Remember that the course is performance based and not time based. The course generally takes 3 to 4 days, with the theoretical, the pool and the open water part successfully passed.
The PADI Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 4 to 5 days depending on the students enrolled.
