Make your way to a dive center in Bayahíbe, where you can present this voucher for a dive course, and fill out registration forms and a medical questionnaire. The four-day course covers everything you need to know to make your first dives safely.
Start with the basic principles of scuba diving, with a classroom session, independent study, or an online course. This is the time to learn about your equipment, dive theory, and safety.
Next, you’ll put your skills to the test with a series of five pool sessions, practicing what you’ve learned in the classroom. The highlight is the final part of the course, where you’ll put it all together in the open water.
Swim alongside an experienced dive master and PADI instructor, and watch for the vibrant wildlife that thrives along the coast of the Dominican Republic. Discover bright formations of coral and waving fans, and enjoy the weightlessness of exploring under the water.
Finish the course with a written exam—when you’ve completed the exam, you’ll have an PADI Open Water Diver certification that’s your pass to diving in the world’s most remarkable sites.
