What to Expect

So you have decided to start your underwater adventure. Great! The PADI Open Water Diver course is the first step on this wonderful path. During the course you will learn everything you need to know to dive safely to a depth of 18m.

You will start the course with a theoretical part, where you will learn all the necessary rules. You will complete the theoretical part with the help of an excellent e-learning module, which has been prepared in such a way as to provide you with all the knowledge in an accessible way. The advantage of e-learning training is that you can take it anytime, anywhere. After completing the module, the instructor will answer all your questions and doubts. Together we will sum up the theoretical knowledge and move on to the practical part.

Then it will be time for the hands-on class in the pool, where there will be time to practice everything you have learned from theory. It is very important to practice everything in a comfortable pool before jumping into the ocean.

The next two days are the diving part, during which we will make 4 dives to a maximum depth of 18 meters. This diving course includes 2 days of diving at Isla del Cano, which is the best place we have here.

After successfully passing all parts of the course, you will officially become a diver!

Don’t hesitate anymore! Let’s make some bubbles together!

Getting your scuba diving license is a great adventure and the beginning of a new hobby. We have collected some of the most frequently asked questions about the scuba diving course, and you can find the answers below.

How much does a PADI OWD course cost in Costa Rica?

All our diving courses are taught by licensed and experienced instructors. Our equipment is always in working order and cleaned and disinfected after each use. We do not take any shortcuts in the training program or in the safety of our students. Despite these high standards, the price of a scuba diving course in Costa Rica does not differ from the average price in the world. The price includes everything necessary for the course and a little surprise at the end of the course.

Do I need to have experience to take a scuba diving course?

Even people who have never tried scuba diving with a breathing apparatus can take a basic scuba diving course. During the course you will learn all the rules of equipment operation and safe behavior under water. Our instructor will take care of everything and answer all your questions. Costa Rica is a great place to take the PADI Open Water Diver course because of the warm and safe ocean waters.

Are there any health contraindications to taking the course?

Each participant of the PADI OWD course must fill out a medical form and answer all questions honestly. Although diving is very safe, there are contraindications that exclude participation in a diving course. An example would be pregnancy, during which you are not allowed to dive. If you are not sure if you can dive, it is best to consult a medical specialist. Our dive center reserves the right to send you for additional medical examination in case of doubts about your health.

Where does your diving course price come from?

The diving course consists of 4 parts. Each of these parts is necessary to pass the training and obtain PADI Open Water Diver license. But what is important – you don’t have to do all the parts at the same time, or even at the same dive center or with the same instructor. If you have limited time, you can take the classes in the pool and for example one diving day, and finish the rest in another place and time. To make your learning process faster and easier, PADI has created an interactive theory learning package. This package is also included in the price of our course and you can start your diving adventure without leaving your home! You can read more about the e-learning package here: How to start your diving adventure without leaving your home?

In our dive center single parts of the diving course cost:

  • PADI e-learning – 195$
  • training session in the pool – 100$
  • each diving day (Isla del Cano) – 175$

If you have already started a course elsewhere and wish to complete it with Costa Rica Divers, please contact us. Please note that the above unit prices may vary depending on the elements you need to complete and our capabilities.
