Start Diving with Arawak Divers

Discover Scuba Diving
Perfect for you if you've never been diving before! Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is a half day experience, which starts with a short presentation, allows you to become familiar and comfortable with your scuba equipment in a set of useful scuba water skills, and then takes you for a proper open water dive! 
Discover Scuba Diving is not a qualification in its own right, but allows you to get a taste of scuba diving. If you love your experience (and we're sure you will!), you can then go on to complete your PADI Open Water Diver course with us!

PADI Open Water Diver
This is the 4 day full PADI certification course. On completion, you will have a diving qualification that is accepted anywhere in the world. The course consists of an in-depth look at dive theory, consisting of videos and reviews with your instructor, scuba skills sessions in shallow water and in deep water, and four open water dives.
You can complete the course, even if you are not a confident swimmer! You will be asked to complete a PADI Medical Statement before you start your course - you can download this here. If you want less classroom time, you can complete PADI eLearning before you arrive on island. Use the following link to sign up, You need to pay up front for your eLearning, but if you sign up to do the course using our store link above, we will credit this against the price of your course when it comes to paying your bill.
