Different options for participants who have already started the course

PADI Open Water Diver with referral from another dive centre

In case you have already started your PADI Open Water Diver course on another dive centre and you wish to finish it here with us, you may do so getting a "PADI Referral" from your actual instructor.

This option has been designed for students who like to start their course at home, doing all the course theory and pool practises in their hometown or nearby, but who feel that scuba diving in cold lakes of your country or in the north sea or the baltic sea is just not yours.

Let your PADI Instructor fill out a "Referral" where he will sign all finished skills, practises and course parts. We will continue with you exactly where you stopped here in the warm and nice waters of Tenerife.

This option is available only within 12 months since the referral. After one year the already finished course parts can not be taken into consideration anymore, you will have to reapeat the full course.

The price for a Referral Open Water Diver course depends on the still missing elements of the course. Please send us a copy of your referral to get an individual free quote.
