If you are planning a vacation to Playa del Carmen, then you should consider the option to get scuba diving certifications while you are in the area. The Riviera Maya is one of the top destinations for scuba divers, and it is easy to see the many benefits of coming to this area for scuba certifications.

Open Water Certification or a Referral Course

People who are just getting started with scuba diving have two options: they can start the certification classes before coming to Mexico, or they can complete the full class here in Playa del Carmen. The most efficient method is to get it done all at once here in Playa del Carmen, and we can help with the certification process.

There are several important steps that you can expect for the certification classes: first, you will be in a classroom setting where you are taught the theory and skills that are needed for scuba diving. Next, you will practice these skills in our high quality swimming pool. Finally, we will head out to the ocean on the best dive boat in Playa del Carmen, and you will have 2 days of diving to complete those skills.

The other option is to begin your certification at home, and then get a referral to do your open water dives in Mexico. Before you arrive on your trip, you can complete the theory and study the materials, and then you will do the skills with our dive company when you get here. This process takes a little longer, but some people prefer it because they want to get more diving time when they are on their vacation (instead of spending a day in the classroom).

Advanced Diving Certifications

In addition to the open water certifications, we also offer advanced scuba certifications to help you take your skills to the next level. There are a variety of options available, and we can help you choose the right continuing education courses for your needs.
