The Referral Course is the quickest and easiest way to complete your Open Water Dive Certification. Simply contact your local dive shop - there are hundred's throughout the USA and Canada and complete the basics of scuba diving under the close instruction of your local dive shop. Then to finish your open water training, head to sunnier climes (Red Sail Sports, Grand Cayman to be precise!) and complete your 4 open water training dives. All you need to do is bring your PADI Referral Paperwork or Universal Referral form from your original instructor confirming that you have successfully completed the necessary training prior to arriving on the island.
Red Sail Sports offers referral courses for all of the largest recognized diving agencies: PADI, NAUI, SSI, NASDS, SDI and HSA.
The referral course takes two days to complete and consists of four open water dives. Once you arrive on Grand Cayman, a short pool assessment is required prior to completion of your first checkout dive. This is included in the course.
Students between the ages of 10 and 15 years will be certified as Junior Open Water Divers and will be required to dive with an adult. Please note that students and divers between the ages of 10 – 11 years will be limited to a maximum depth of 40 feet and ages 12 and over to a maximum depth of 60 feet.
Please be sure to bring your referral paperwork form your original instructor with you upon check-in. Special arrangements can be made for students who are unable to complete all areas of the theory or confined water sessions before arriving in Grand Cayman.
All instruction, materials, equipment, certification and diving is included.
