Scuba training takes place in two parts. First is the classroom and pool portion which most people do before their Caribbean vacation so they can maximize their vacation time. Second is the "open water" certification portion which consists of four supervised scuba dives during which a scuba instructor will review your skills.
Upon successful completion of the course and four open water dives, an internationally recognized certification is given. The open water dives are conducted locally as weather permits. You may join us on one of our trips to more exotic locations or take a letter of referral to a dive destination of your choosing to complete the dives with a local instructor. Pan Aqua is happy to recommend and arrange dive travel for you.

The most modern scuba equipment (complete regulator systems, computers, buoyancy jackets, wetsuits, tanks, and weights) is provided for your instruction. Additionally, we also provide you with mask, snorkel, fins. However we do recommend students own their own mask, snorkel, and fins. Students who purchase the full equipment package (mask, snorkel, boots, fins) from our store will recieve a $75 rebate on their gear pack as well as a free equipment bag. A 10% discount will be applied to any of those items individually should a student not want to purchase the whole full package. Also students who decide to do their academic work through PADI e-learning will recieve their e-learning educational pack (a $68 value) for free, complimentary from the store.
