SWIM & SCUBA CAMP FOR KIDS ONLY

Open Water Camp


PADI open water training to learn all basic skills and get certified to explore underwater. This camp is for adults and youth 12+ years of age (10 and 11 year olds who have taken the PADI Seal Team can also take the Open Water Camp) at the Escambrón Marine Park. This program offers the option of the PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Diver and/or PADI Rescue Diver with First Aid course. In the case of the “Advanced Camp” and “Rescue Camp” camps, it includes an excursion to carry out (2) training dives at the “Crash Boat” beach in Aguadilla. The end date and destination will be determined by your Instructor. 

We do not have buses or chauffeurs to provide transportation.  Thus, this needs to be arranged directly with our tour guides.  If guests have their own car, then the guide rides with them.  If not, then the guide transports guests and gear typically for a goodwill transportation fee of $30pp.
