Belize Scuba Diving Certification

If you’ve ever dreamed of exploring the underwater world, then learning to scuba dive in the warm waters of Belize is for you! Dive tours and courses are contracted out by a third party dive operator and can be scheduled upon arrival with our front desk/concierge. Costs for Belize dive tours and courses vary depending on the dive site, minimum number of divers required, and rental equipment needed. Our front desk/concierge will work closely with you and the third party operator to ensure a smooth Belize dive experience.

Discover Scuba

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course allows you to experience the basics of scuba diving in the comfort and convenience of our onsite swimming pool. During the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course, your highly skilled dive instructor will carefully go over basic concepts and scuba skills that will be helpful should you decide to pursue an Open Water Dive Certification course. This PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is conducted in the pool primarily, and also includes a one tank dive on the reef with the guidance of an instructor at a depth of between 15-30 feet. It does not certify you to dive in the open sea. No prior scuba diving experience is necessary, but you need to be in good physical health. Candidates must be 10+ years old.

Open Water Referral Course

Our Open Water Referral course allows you to complete your dive training in distinct segments. First, candidates who are enrolled in an Open Water Referral course will complete all theory and confined water dives at home with their local dive center. Candidates must have a signed referral form from previous dive instructors or dive centers. Execute the practical portion of your Open Water Referral course with us in Belize where you will do four open water dives consisting of 2- two tank dives per day on the Southern Barrier Reef of Belize with a PADI dive instructor.

We did three days of diving for an extra charge and loved it. Steve and the boat captains were timely, knowledgeable, and made the dives great. – TripAdvisor user
