PADI Scuba Diving Certification Courses in Cozumel

Get certified to scuba dive in Cozumel, Mexico, named 1 of the top 5 diving destinations in the world! We offer expert PADI scuba certification through English speaking instructors with over 24 years of combined scuba instruction experience.

 

Open Water Diver   $400

The Open Water Diver rating is the first diving certification you need to begin a lifelong passion for scuba diving in Cozumel and around the world. It is the minimum certification level at which scuba divers are allowed to rent scuba gear and cylinders for truly independent diving but we like to think of it as the doorway to adventure!

The Open Water Diver certification requires training by a qualified scuba instructor conducted in three different phases:

  • Academic Theory, Knowledge Reviews and a Final Exam – the “book work.”
  • 5 Confined Water Dive – Learn and practice the skills that will make you a safe and independent scuba diver.
  • 4 Open Water Dives – Demonstrate those skills learned in confined water in conditions typically encountered by certified divers.

Upon completion of the course, the Open Water diver may dive with a similarly certified dive buddy to a maximum depth not to exceed 60 feet / 18 meters. Junior Divers (10 to 14 years old) have strict depth limits that depend upon their age and activity while with a PADI professional and/or parent & guardian. PADI Junior Open Water Diver certifications automatically change to a PADI Open Water certification when the diver turns 15 years old.

In addition to offering the full PADI Open Water certification course, taught completely by Triple Sail scuba instructors from start to finish, we also offer the following training options:

The only prerequisite is that you have completed the PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification course. With the assistance of your Triple Sail scuba instructor you will select 3 adventure dives in which you will explore various new underwater activities, like underwater photography, fish identification, night diving and many other options. Additionally, you will also complete a required deep dive and an underwater navigation dive.

Upon completion of this course, the Advanced Open Water diver may dive with a similarly certified dive buddy to a maximum depth not to exceed 100 feet / 30 meters. Junior Divers (10 to 14 years old) have strict depth limits that depend upon their age and activity while with a PADI professional and/or parent & guardian.

PADI Rescue Diver   $375

Our PADI Rescue Diver certification training clients all essentially tell us the same thing when they’re finished – that learning to become a rescue diver is as transformative as it is challenging. They also say this Triple Sail course is FUN! The Rescue Diver course is the first diving certification in which scuba divers learn to start caring for their fellow dive buddies beyond pre-dive buddy checks and managing an underwater gear failure. Rescue divers learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of distressed divers and confidently respond to genuine medical emergencies should it become necessary.

Prepare to be someone’s hero – earn your PADI Rescue Diver certification next time you’re in Cozumel.

In addition to offering the full PADI Rescue Diver certification course, taught completely by Triple Sail scuba instructors from start to finish, we also offer the following training option:
