Tour Summary

Making a trip to Nassau is something everyone should do at least once, come and experience the beauty of the scenery above water and beneath!  Something every scuba diver has in common is the appreciation for our underwater eco systems.  Now that you’re almost done with your Open Water Scuba certification and only need to complete the 4 check out dives, it is time you join us and experience for yourself why Scuba Diving in Nassau is a top choice of divers from around the world!

The Nassau Open Water Referral Course is the last stop in becoming Open Water Certified.  Once your classroom training and confined pool dives have all been completed, bring your referral paperwork with you and we’ll take care of the rest.  Our professional padi dive instructors are here to provide top notch and thorough instructions for you while you strap on the gear and immerse yourself in the beauty of Bahamas Scuba Diving.  During the 2 half days of the course, you’ll visit intricate reef systems, wrecks, ocean walls, or possibly a blue hole!  After your course is complete, your certification card will allow you to dive anywhere in the world at a depth of up to 60 feet without an instructor.  We provide all the necessary scuba gear so you only have to worry being at the pick up location on time, it’s that simple!  Spaces are limited for our daily trips, be sure you get yours booked well in advance so we can guarantee your spots before they’re gone.

Q. What dives will I be doing while completing this certification?
A. Day 1 is afternoon reef diving and day 2 is the morning dive to the specified dive location for that day (wreck, wall, blue hole, etc).

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Nassau PADI Open Water Referral Course is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
