The Akumal Dive Shop offers for your convenience, the Open Water Referral Course. The referral allows you to complete your four open water dives with one of our instructors after completing the academic and confined water (pool) portions at home (where usually is cold). Many of our clients choose this option, so they can enjoy their dives in the warm Caribbean Sea or reduce the amount of time required to complete the full course here and therefore enjoy of more free time during their vacations.
All you need to do is bring a referral letter from an instructor of any recognized scuba diving certifying agency and dedicate two days of your vacation for completing the four dives! Open water students can also be referred to another instructor at any point during the open water course. After an easy and quick academic and water skill assessment, our instructors can continue your training at any point in the course.
