Meet your PADI-certified guide at Fonatour Marina in Cozumel, easily reached by taxi from your hotel or via a ferry from nearby Playa del Carmen. During a 3-day period, you'll participate in a PADI Open Water Diver course — considered the world's most popular and widely recognized scuba diving course.
You must be at least 10 years old (accompanied by an adult), have strong swimming skills, and be in good health and physical condition. However, you don't need any prior experience with scuba diving to enjoy an unforgettable time observing the underwater world of Cozumel. Whether you're a first-timer or you've taken scuba diving lessons before, this intensive program lets you practice the specific skills necessary to become a certified open water diver.
During the course, activities are planned according to your scheduled time and include some theory lessons, skills sessions, and four open water dives in the best reef area in Cozumel, where you will discover majestic sea life with your guide. All necessary equipment, boat transport, and national park fees are included.
