Enjoy long bottom times with Cubano and Nacho, DM and instructor, who have been in Cozumel for decades. If you have a friend who wants to get certified or just wants to try scuba diving for the first time, bring them along too.
If you or someone you know is in college and is considering getting a PADI open water certification or completing a continuing education course, read on!
The American Council on Education (ACE), which evaluates courses and recommends college credit when they meet certain standards, has recommended college credit for 25 different PADI courses. Colleges and universities can apply the credit to a student’s major by replacing a required course or waiving a prerequisite course.
It’s important to note that students should always contact their particular college or university first to see what courses would be eligible at that institution. To ensure that the credit is validated, students will need an official transcript as proof of the course completion (not just a PADI certification card).

Once you’re certified to dive, you’ll never run out of new things to learn and ways to improve your own skills. Continuing your scuba education is fun and helps you reach new personal diving goals. Here are just a few of our most popular courses for divers who are already open water certified:
Consider taking the Advanced Open Water course if you want to improve your diving skills and get a brief intro to various specialities. Besides the required focus areas of deep diving and navigation, you’ll choose three other focus areas. Common options in Cozumel include drift diving, fish identification, peak performance buoyancy, night diving and wreck diving.
Speciality courses are an awesome way to take your diving to a new level by focusing on one particular aspect of diving that’s most intriguing and relevant to you while working closely with an experienced instructor. Specialties that are especially popular in Cozumel are the deep speciality, peak performance buoyancy specialty, and drift specialty.
If you’ve ever wondered what the big deal is with Nitrox, you’ll be pleased to know it’s one of the shortest, simplest courses we teach; you can be enjoying longer allowable bottom times after just a couple hours of training. This is a great option if you want to invest in your own growth as a diver but you also want to minimize the amount of vacation time you spend on a course.
If you love hands-on and interactive learning, one of our most popular courses is the Rescue Course. Learn about how to handle emergencies at the surface and underwater.
If you’re looking to broaden your skills, learn more, focus on a particular aspect of diving that’s most fascinating to you, or prepare for a specific goal like a liveaboard dive trip or cenote diving, one of our courses could be the perfect addition to your next vacation!
