PADI Scuba Diver
Your first diving license

The PADI Scuba Diver course is an introductory step into the world of scuba diving and a stepping stone on the way to a PADI Open Water Diver license. If you’re short on time but really want to get started in scuba diving, then the PADI Scuba Diver course may be right for you.

Getting your PADI Scuba Diver license is really easy and will help you understand the basics of diving. The entire program consists of a theoretical part, which you can take through e-learning, a class in the pool and 2 dives in the ocean.

Why should you train with Costa Rica Divers?

We are professionals, but we do not treat diving only as a business. For us it is a way of life and a never-ending adventure. We train divers at all recreational levels from basic degrees, to professional licenses. If you are looking for experienced instructors and a good dive base then you need look no further.

But why is our diving course different from other diving schools?

First of all – our price is complete, including all materials, dives, equipment rental for the duration of the course, PADI license fees – in a word, everything you need to complete the course. Just come and see for yourself.

PADI Scuba Diver course details

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a basic diving course, even before the PADI Open Water license. Having this license won’t give you as much authority and freedom as a complete scuba diving course, but it’s a great way to start your diving adventure. You’ll learn simple diving theory, practice assembling and using your equipment, and of course make your first dives in the ocean!

When you decide to take it to the next level and complete PADI Open Water it will be faster and easier, because with a PADI Scuba Diver license you will already be a licensed diver. Especially if you are on vacation and don’t have time to do a full course, this license will be a great idea.

What does the PADI Scuba Diver course look like?

The course is designed to teach proper dive planning and safety principles. And although as a PADI Scuba Diver you will only be able to dive in the company of an Instructor or Divemaster, the knowledge you will gain from the course is no different from a full PADI Open Water course.


How is this course different from Discover Scuba Diving?

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a program that culminates in a diver’s license. The Discover Diving program, on the other hand, is a one-time experience that is designed to show you what it is like to dive.

We have prepared answers to the most frequently asked questions about our PADI Scuba Diver course in Costa Rica. If you have any additional questions, please contact us.

What will I learn in this course?

The PADI Scuba Diver course is the initial step to becoming a licensed diver. After completing this course, you will receive your first diving license and be able to move on to the next stages of training. The advantage of this course is that you can complete it in a short period of time, which can be important if you don’t have much time during the vacations. Of course, you can go directly to participate in the PADI Open Water course without first completing the PADI Scuba Diver, as the program of this course is part of the Open Water program.

What equipment will I be using on this course?

During this diving course you will use standard diving equipment, which you will learn the rules of use during the class. This set of diving equipment will accompany you for most of your diving adventure.

Where will I dive during this PADI course?

We conduct the PADI Scuba Diver course on the magical island of Isla del Caño, and it’s there that you’ll do your two dives necessary to obtain your license. You will take your theory and pool classes at our dive center in Uvita.
