Important Information

All courses and materials are in English. E-learning can be done in the language of your choice but practical training and assessments at Dolphin Dive will be in English

PADI Medical Statement

Before undertaking a PADI diving course, or refresher, with us you must read and understand the PADI MEDICAL STATEMENT and seek the advice of a doctor in case of doubt. If you answer YES to any of these questions then you MUST get written permission to dive from a doctor, using the attached form, before coming to the island. Click above to link through to a copy of this statement.

Start Time

Courses start at 8am, so you need to arrive the day before beginning the course. You also need to allowa minimum of 18 hours after diving before flying. Please contact us if you require more detailed schedules for your particular course


The PADI e-Learning system allows you to complete all the theory and tests on-line before you get here. This means that when you come to the island you save approx. 3/4 day of time on the course, although the course  duration is still 3 days, it won’t be full days every day

This option is more expensive though than doing the full course here as PADI charge you direct for e-Learning and this varies by course, but for Open Water it costs $230. During the registration process you nominate a PADI dive shop, which then receives a rebate of part of the fee you have paid. If you register using the buttons on this page then you will be affiliated with Dolphin Dive and we then charge you only $220 to complete the inwater sections of the course with us.

If you’re planning to do the course over the busy holiday periods please check availability in advance before signing up with PADI, to avoid any potential disappointment.

Total price for Open Water

  • e-learning: $230 to PADI, $220 to Dolphin Dive = $450 (3 days, part days)
  • full class @dolphin Dive = $360 (3 full days)

Course duration will depend on student comfort level, class size, weather conditions etc.

Note that payment made when signing up for e-learning is made direct to PADI Americas, and not to Dolphin Dive. PADI do not offer refunds or transfers of credit to other dive centres. E-learning credit is valid for up to one year towards the Open Water training and the theory credit can be used at any dive centre.
