PADI Open Water Referral
How Does It Work?
Anything that you complete through a PADI dive center or resort is recognized globally by any PADI dive center. So complete all your theory and pool work back home. Simply join us in the ocean to finish your certification.
Our PADI instructors try to make the classroom side of the course as fun and engaging as possible. But who really wants to be stuck inside when you have clear blue skies outside? By completing the theory and pool sessions in your home country, you can join us straight for the real fun part – the open water dives.
You’ll free up and an extra day on your holiday, the Open Water referral only takes two days. The pools are probably heated and indoor back home so you won’t have an uncomfortable experience but the open ocean maybe won’t be as warm or as clear as Phuket.
What You Need To Bring
You’ll need to bring the student record file that your dive center gave you and make sure your instructor has signed for completion on your pool/theory sessions. If you completed the theory via e-learning then you can print out the PADI completion email.
There is a one-year validity on all that you’ve completed so make sure you’ve got your timing right or you may have to repeat it all again…
So what are you waiting for? Get started at your local dive center and then come and join us to finish this awesome experience!
