You will find that there are various levels of certifications that are available, and you will have an amazing experience while you get scuba certified in the warm Caribbean waters.

Step 1: Find a Dive Shop in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is one of the best locations for scuba certifications, because there are many beautiful ocean reefs that can be explored just off the coast. Find a dive shop in the area, and ask about the certification programs that are available. Two of the most popular scuba certifications are through PADI and RAID, and you can look for a dive shop that offers both options so that you can choose the program that best meets your needs.

Step 2: Complete the Classroom and Pool Training

Once you have chosen a dive shop in Playa del Carmen and selected your program, such as PADI or RAID, the next step is to get started with the theory and learning that is required for the certification program. Both of these certifications have online training that you can complete in advance, or you can visit our dive classroom to go through the theory lessons while you are in Mexico.

After the classroom training is done, then you will jump in the pool with a dive instructor to learn about the equipment and skills that are needed for safe diving. We offer the best scuba certification pool in Playa del Carmen, and our instructors are highly rated.

Step 3: Complete Your Open Water Dives

After passing off the skills that are required in the pool, then you will need to do your open water dives in the ocean. We will head out on our spacious boat where you will pass off the required skills, and also enjoy your dives by exploring the beautiful reefs in the area at the same time.
