Complete Your Open Water Certification with Dive Provo in Turks and Caicos!

Start your scuba instruction certification course at home with a local dive shop. You will do the academics with them in a classroom setting or utilizing E-Learning online, and will learn all the required skills in their swimming pool. Your instructor will give you a Referral Form showing you have successfully completed all the skills. You can then complete your four open-water training dives in Provo’s warm, clear waters.

If you are completing PADI or SSI training, your Dive Provo instructor will issue the certification. If you are completing dives for any other certifying agency (NAUI, SDI/TDI) we refer you back to your original instructor who will issue the certification.

If you have certified family or friends diving, you will be on the same boat. You, however, will be doing skills with your instructor and must stay with him/her. After completing the skills, there is still plenty of time to enjoy a dive and the scenery.
