Can’t decide whether to get your scuba certification while on holiday or at home before you travel?
With a PADI Open Water Referral, you don’t have to choose.
A PADI Open Water Diver Referral allows you to complete most of your scuba training at home
and finish your certification dives anywhere in the world. Avoid studying during your vacation and finish your diving where the weather is wonderful and the dives are incredible.
