Why should I choose the Referral Open Water course? The Referral Open Water Course allows you to prepare your theory and swimmig pool classes at home in your own time. It is the ideal way to find out if you like diving before going on a holiday. Pool classes back home usually allow you to practice more and to become comfortable with basic dive skills. There is no pressure to finish an entire open water course into your limited vacation time. *Note that a maximum of six (6) months to a year is allowed between completion of the pool and theory work and the open water dives.

The PADI Referral Open Water course: How does it work?

∙ Back home: Simply contact one of your PADI local dive shops using this link and complete the basics of scuba diving with them. Then you can finish your course with us in El Nido. All you need to do is bring your PADI Referral form from your instructor and your medical clearance. It shows that you have successfully completed the necessary training before arriving here.

∙ With Palawan Divers: The referral course takes two days to complete and consists of 4 open water dives and 1 check-out dive. It’s important for us that you try your new skills. The extra fundive on the second day is only an additional Php1,200!

The PADI Referral Open Water course: What will I do?

A TYPICAL SCHEDULE: Palawan Divers usually plans 3 dives per day. We meet at 8:00am and are back at around 3:30 pm. The quality, safety and comfort of your course are very important to us, so you can expect the focused, undivided attention of our staff. We limit the number of divers to 8 per boat, with a maximum of 2 students per instructor.

● Day One: On your first day the first session will be a short check out dive in confined water for yourself and to give the instructor an idea how comfortable you are before taking you for your open water dives 1 and 2. 
● Day Two: You will finish Open water dive 3 and 4. In the afternoon you can even do an extra fundive to get some more experience in.

After completing your course, we will issue you a temporary certification. Your own personal Certification Card with your photo and identification number will be in your mailbox within the next 6 weeks. You can use this card anywhere in the world!
