PADI Training

Have you always wanted to get certified or to finish your scuba training in the islands? We are a PADI 5-star Dive Center and therefore offer Open Water scuba certifications through the agency PADI. You’ll complete your studies online prior to arrival and we’ll take care of all your dives. For those looking to complete the last portion of their certification, we’ll ask you to send your referral paperwork in advance so we can assist you in getting those final dives scheduled!

Culebra Divers also provides certified divers with a “Scuba Tune-up” to get you back in the swing of things if you’ve been out of the water for a while. Anyone not diving for 2 or more years is strongly recommended to take the time to refresh your skills. Don’t let all your training slip away!
